Hi,

I have Toshiba Satellite Laptop which came with Pre-Installed windows Vista.

It had been working just fine until today.Now when I try to start it up the power light comes on and I can hear the HD working but there is no movement on the screen.Its black (Just like it is when the laptop is off).

The F8 key doesn't help either!
Ive downloaded the Recovery Disc but cannot get the system to boot from the CD Because I don't know how to change BIOS settings!

Thx in advance for your help!!

usually press delete on start up or look to see if a flash up appears on screen saying something like press f12 to configure
anyhow if delete button works go to bios go to boot up config and enable cd rom
