I need help. My toshiba NB205 is not working. When I turn it on it goes to a black screen that give me two options Launch start up repair or start normally. If I choose the startup normally it brings me back to the the same screen. If I choose Launch start up repair it goes to a black screen and only my cursor is on there. I tried going into safe mode and doing the recovery but nothing works. It always brings me back to this black screen. I even tried pressing Alt-Ctrl-Del and after trying a bunch of other things it brought me to a black screen and then weird codes came up on the screen like "Realtek RTL8101E etc. PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM. This product is covered by one or more of the following patents, etc." and it says a bunch of other stuff and it keeps repeating it. I read in other forums that Im supposed to get into the BIO but I need step by step directions on how to do that cause when I went into the start up (by pressing F2) I didnt know what to do. Well, after pressing Launch star up repair and I left it for several minutes at the black screen to see if anything will happen and then after a long time a pop up message came and it said Error: F3-FF00-0006. Failed to get the ID of the specified partition. Press ok to turn off the computer. When I pressed ok, it turned off the computer and when I turned it on again i took me to the black screen with the two options Launch start up repair or start normally. Ahhh it's so frustrating and all my school work is on this laptop. Please if you can help me.. please let me know what to do..thanks. Oh, and I don't know what could have caused this problem. Yesterday the computer kept freezing up and it was really slow and once it even shut down for no reason but I could start it up after. But today it's not working properly.
