this sounds like a problem I had with my m35 a few years back. The problem is in the Maxim chip. It's a one hour repair. I wrote a tutorial and it helped hundreds sofar to repair their laptops.

This problem is likely caused by overheating. The CPU reaches a temp to high and shuts the system down. When you try to turn it on the system is still to hot and it will not let the computer power on. You can try blowing out the fans and heat sink with an air compressor or can of compressed air. If this does not help the problem you may need to have thermal compound reapplied. If that does not fix it it will need a new heatsink/fan/
from your start menu, type dxdiag in the run box and hit enter then select no, that gives you alot of info on your laptop. for your harddrive go to my computer and right click on the C drive and go to properties, that will tell you the size
Do you get any power when you try to turn it on? Is there anything that displays on the screen?
See if it is out of warranty for sure. Call Toshiba. If it is, then you might try to remove the compartment lid that has access to the CPU fan/heatsink. Look for clogged lint in the fan. Remove it if possible.
