Toshiba NB205 Stuck on Boot?

I have a Toshiba NB205. I press the power button and it is stuck on the black screen reading Toshiba Leading Innovation. When I press esc it brings me to BIOS information readingKAVAA BIOS version V1.20CPU= 1 PROCESSORS DETECTEDINTEL ATOM CPU N280 1.66GHz1015M SYSTEM RAM PASSED512 KB CACHESYSTEM BIOS SHADOWEDVIDEO BIOS SHADOWEDFIXED DISCK 0: HITACHI HTS545016B9A300MOUSE INITIALIZED When trying to press F2 or F12 (setup or boot selection) it will not go through When you power on the device and hold F2 or F12 it will not go through but hangs on please wait When you try to press 0 for system recovery, it does nothing When you press del it does nothing It
just stays on the Toshiba screen. The LED light for the hard drive
blinks about 2 seconds upon start up and goes off. My general diagnosis
is that the hard drive has failed, but could I be missing something. Since
the computer does not come with a DVD/ROM drive, trying to run a
recovery counsle through windows is not an option, however, if I cannot
access boot device selection, I would not be able to run this anyways. Has anyone else getting this problem and if so has it been solved? As I said, I am diagnosing that the hard drive has failed...
