Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Couple of things you need to do..

1: Boot into BIOS (setup) and make sure nothing in the boot order is set to boot from LAN or boot from network !!

2: While still in BIOS, disable the "Wake on Lan" option..

Press F10 and the "Y" and let the system start..

Well, the manual you should have received with your system should give you that information along with the location of the boot sequence location in BIOS..

Just watch your screen as it is starting up.. It will tell you there what key to press to get into BIOS (setup) - usually the <delete> key..

boot prority is HDD, FDD, CD-ROM, LAN then the Net. Boot Protocol is PXE. Wake up on LAN is disabled and so is the alarm time. ... see what I noticed that under peripheral it says that my hard disk mode is not used and that is an option it wount let me change

Change both the LAN and NET options to HDD.. If you can change or disable the Boot Protocol, do that as well..

I can change the boot protocol to RPL and the only LAN options I can change on this is PCI LAN ( the built in ) and I just made it disabled ... see like I asked another person about it they said that the only way i can fix this is reformat ... like because its a toshiba satellite and they arnt set up to deal with external harddrives ... and thats where the problem started

You're not by any chance losing your time settings are you? If you are your CMOS battery may be dead and that will cause the BIOS settings to revert to default. In many older laptops the install was done by network and that is the default boot device.

Everything is set the way it should be ... but its still trying to boot on a external harddrive that is not there ... I was thinking maybe if I put somthing on a flash drive that will allow windows to start and stuff then like ... maybe it will start and somehow i can get the computer to reconise that there is an internal harddrive ? would that work? ...
