Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook ?

Black screen battery charged new ac cord turns on fan is on nothing on screen wont go on to hard disk i guess

Answers :

Your LCD screen is probably bad.. Can you see anything? It may be very very very dim. If it is very dim(use a flashlite to see if anything comes up), if you can see something but is very very dim then it is the backlight to your LCD screen and you need a new screen
\015\012Try connecting your PC to an external monitor.. then try getting it to work..
\015\012If it works on an external monitor then it is your LCD screen.
\015\012If it fails, then it is your video card or motherboard.
I am sorry but it does sound like your hardrive is gone, if not, your screen connection. Does it sound like the machine is booting or does it just run the fan? If it is the hardrive, it is replaceable and can be copied to the new hardrive if it is accessible.
