Will it start in safe mode.Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts.If so maybe a system restore or a last good configuration.

no it doesnt even give the option to choose safe mode.
but i will try tapping F8.

Press the tab key as it loads, this might change the toshiba screen to the post screen. It might give you a clue on why it is not booting.

If all fails you could opt for a windows repair.

If you have the original insallation disc, have you tried installing it? It should give you options for a system repair.
If you have the original XP disc put it in and do not choose repair but "install windows" you will be given an option later to either re-format an perform a clean installation or install windows saving existing files and settings, try the latter option first.
