Hello,

My Toshiba laptop won't boot up.  It gets to the screen that says "windows loading" with the Windows logo multicolor flag on it, but then nothing.  I get a black screen with an arrow.  I should say, the fan hasn't been working, so I was running external fan underneath it for the last couple of months.  I don't care if I am infected or not, I just need this paper, and then it can die!

 

I did try to load the recovery CD disks, but nothing, just goes to the black screen of death.

Were you removing malware?

What is the operating system?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Thank you, but never mind.  I posted in the internal hardware section, and someone is helping me there.
