pkm193, I have started a new thread for you. I'm not sure there is much help that can be offered for this, but two questions:

>> do you have a Win95 CD?

>> are you able to access the BIOS|CMOS setup and set the cd-rom drive to boot first in the boot order?

Entering CMOS For Different Motherboards
Press Tab during boot=Emachine
Press del during boot= (AMI, Award).
Press Esc during boot= Toshiba.
Press F1 during boot= (Toshiba; Phoenix; Late model PS/1 Value Point and 330s).
Press F2 during boot = (NEC).
Press F10 when square in top RH corner of screen= (Compaq).
Press Ins during boot=IBM PS/2 with reference partition.
Shift Ctrl Alt + Num Pad del= - Olivetti PC Pro.
Ctrl Alt ? =some PS/2s, such as 75 and 90.
Ctrl-Esc = Misc Puters
Ctrl Ins= some PS/2s when pointer at top right of screen.
Press reset twice= some Dells.
Ctrl Alt Enter= Dell.
Ctrl Alt Esc=AST Advantage, Award, Tandon.
Ctrl Alt + =Misc Puters
Ctrl Alt S= Phoenix.
Ctrl Alt Ins= (Zenith, Phoenix)
Ctrl S =(Phoenix).
Ctrl Shift Esc= Tandon 386.

I've never heard of a Toshiba laptop that doesn't have a removable hard drive. If the data on the drive is very important and you can't get your system to boot to retrieve it, you can purchase an adapter that will allow you to connect the drive to a desktop computer. Then you can pull the data off.
