you could run the repair cd and try repair then system restore if that fails:
Toshiba do provide a hidden recovery partition called the HDD Recovery Utility. This is accessed by pressing and holding the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard and then pressing the computer's power switch.

you have a damaged update install probably from shutting down, or running out of power during the install or even a bad download, run the factory and you will restore your machine to its original state, you will lose all files and setting though.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Thanks. After I place the question, there was one answer, which says, windows sometimes disable the F keys. was advised to push just the Regular F key.then my computer started. Thanks so much.I now know your advice on Zero / Power button option.
