Dear all, toshiba Satellite L850D
Doesn't Boot. Black Screen with Cursor.
I am unable to boot into safemode (F8 & Shift + F8 doesn't work)
F12 > HDD Recovery doesn;t work (black screen)
Removed battery and all that jazz. no luck.
Is there a different way of booting into safemode on a Toshiba that I am unaware of?

Hold down Shift while clicking on Restart will bring up the Troubleshooting screen which includes a large variety of Troubleshooting options.

Try turning the machine off using a hard shutdown if necessary and then hold down Shift while you turn the machine back on.

Read the instructions on "Recovering the Internal Storage Drive" starting on page 54 of your User's Guide. If you created Recovery Media as you were instructed when you first started the machine, now is the time to use them. If you did not create any, they can be ordered HERE.
If you're still under warranty, you might want to try Tech Support at 1-800-457-7777. Good Luck.
