Why does my laptop often fail to boot up?

After I turn on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, the Toshiba logo comes on, but then it goes black . It doesn’t let me do anything. I don’t know what to do. After I turn it off and on again many times, it will finally switch on and when it does it work just fine with no problems at all. Can anyone please help me??

    There are many possible reasons for this. Here are two checks I can suggest:

    1. Remove the hard drive and reinsert it (only if you're comfortable with doing that, obviously) and
    2. Check the the SMART status of the drive with software such as SpeedFan. If the software warns you that the drive is not healthy, back it up immediately and replace the drive!
