If you can't get into the BIOS (using F2) without the system hanging (freezing up) the motherboard is probably bad. Check in your area to see if any technicians offer repair estimates for free. Maybe they will give you a better idea what is wrong. Due to the high labor costs, most techs charge, repairing this type of problem would probably be more expensive then getting a new computer. An alternative to repair would be to sell it (as is) on ebay and use that money towards a new system. The toshiba sales on ebay are very active and you can usually get close to $100. even in "non-working" condition.
