Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Black screen Laptop (Toshiba Satellite Series, don't remember the model #) was working fine. I closed the lid and next time I opened it up, the screen was black with white underscore blinking in the top left corner. Rebooting didn't help. What might be the problem and is there any way to fix it? Thank you in advance
