I have a Toshiba satellite
It sounds as though your system is getting no power at all- try a second ac adapter. If that does not work, if in warranty, contact your technical support provider to get it serviced. If not, there is a good chance you will need a replacement motherboard- find a reputable technician and see about purchasing the replacement board.

MY D DRIVE IS READING
This is a sign of a driver that really got corrupted , one thing that you can do here is to format and recover the files after doing the format and hopefully those files inside the drive are still intact and not fully damage or corrupted. So format the drive and once done download this software for recovering the files from the formatted drive its called Recuva you can download it from download.com and its for free. Install it to your computer and when you're already trying to recover the files enable the deep scan option.

Is there a backdoor bios
The Backdoor passwords are not determined by the laptop manufacturer - the backdoor passwords depend on the manufacturer of the bios itself. Is it an Award biosor an AMI bios etc?
Award BIOS backdoor passwords:
shift + syxz
AMI BIOS Backdoor Passwords:
Phoenix BIOS Backdoor Passwords:
Misc. Common Passwords
Other BIOS Passwords by Manufacturer
VOBIS & IBM
Most Toshiba laptops and some desktop systems will bypass the BIOS password if the left shift key is held down during boot

Do not know video or audio cards.
Probably a Trident video card. Go into Control Panel>System and select the display adaptor right click and select update driver don't let it contact windows update. Thwe next step should then say this wizard helps you install software for and it will tell you the hardware. Repeat for the audio card.
If that doesn't work right click on the adaptor>Properties>Details>Hardware IDs and google the ven and dev data

Toshiba 1805 will not start up
The RAM may need reseating or it maybe faulty.
If reseating the RAM module/s doesn't work and if you have two RAM modules, then try one at a time.
You could take the RAM to your friendly shop and get them tested or test them in another laptop.
