Answers :

Aww, buddy. I feel for ya. I know this one too well, being a Toshiba laptop owner myself. First you can do is test it. Do so by plugging an external monitor into the laptop. Notice the blue port on your laptop? Boot up and wait a few minutes, 'cause I know you can't see anything. Now hold down the Fn key (the next part will change video output) look up at the keys F1-F12. Look really close because you will see little symbols. Press once, on the key that looks like 2 monitors. In my case it's F5 (remember to hold down the Fn key before you push F5(?). Anyway, my guess is you should see your desktop. If this is the case, then you have a bad power inverter. Scarry- I know, halloween is just around the corner, but don't fret. The inverter is located just below the screen, right about where it say's Toshiba. I found the part online for about 60 bucks but I think if you shop ebay or somthing you can probably get it cheaper. The inverter is just a card that has 2 harnesses plugged into it. To purchase, you NEED the number off the original card. Forget about your laptop's serial number etc. Carefully remove the little rubber lid protection plugs and use a jewlers phillips screwdriver to remove the screws. GENTLY do not Force the front beezle away from the back of the lid. BEFORE DOING ANY OF THIS- SHUTDOWN-UNPLUG-REMOVE BATTERY ! (reminds me of an episode of MASH ;-)

Good luck, and it's easier than it sounds. Just be gentle.
