And now I keep hearing the words... Like a good neighbor this dumb a** is there! I do not know what possessed me to say bring it over I'll look at it. Now, in my care, I feel committed to do what I can. Toshiba Satallite L745-S4310 7 OS laptop will not boot. Turn it on goes directly to Start Up Repair (recommended) I push F8 for more options the only directional key that works is up key and no matter which option I try the Enter key does nothing. I put in an Avast Recovery Disc to no avail but when I push the zero key and turn on the computer Toshiba Start up page will flash for a second (it is still the only way it comes up) F2 does not work when it does though. Somehow I finally managed to get a DOS Edit Boot Options window to open which shows the path: \windows\system32\winload.exe then it says Partion: 2 Hard Disk:9deb38f3 then [ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN ] and here I sit not sure what to do next. I do not want to do anything that would turn her (in the right hands) salvageable laptop in to a (in my hands) un-salvageable hunk of junk. Please help me help my neighbor and in the future I will bite my tongue if I feel compelled to "help" with someone else's computer. P.S. Please use Dummy and not Geek should you feel compelled to reply. Thank You FergieGirl2

Use a hard disk manager (Seagate, WD, whatever) and check the hard drive. It may be bad or corrupted.
