    I can't boot my Toshiba lap top...at start up I get a blue screen that says something about a bad BIOS...I can't boot from my XP install disk from my D/D...I can't mount from a USB hard drive that has XP system loaded...I can't boot in safe mode...I can't boot from the "after bios screen" choices...

    I'm dead in the water...

    What is the exact error message?
    Were you doing anything relating to the BIOS before this happened?
