I have a Toshiba laptop (Satellite Pro) with Windows XP. I can't get past the black screen that has the options of restarting in Safe Mode or other modes. I have selected each option and they all send me back to the black screen and questions. I know nothing about how to fix a computer and have been looking up things on the internet & none work...ie: F4, F8, F12. I even got to the BIOS screen, which I don't know how I did (F1 OR F2, I think!?!), but I have no idea what to do once there. Please give me some advice and help to fix my laptop. I cannot afford to take it anywhere to get it checked out. I have no start up or reboot disks. The computer was given to me about 9 mons ago. Thank you sooo much in advance for your time and cooperation.
Hope you can help,
