Can you explain what you mean by "start-up loop", at what point is the PC getting too? Does it continuosly shut-down?

the only way i know to start in safe-mode is during startup when it gives you the option or by restarting in safe mode, i cant get it to get past that toshiba, cursor loop

In the manual that came with the laptop, there might be reference to what to hit to recover your system. Can you check that out?
