I turned it off and it was working fine, but when I tried to turn it back on it powered up for a moment and turned off again. Now it doesn't turn on most of the time, or it turns on but it immediately turns off before it gets to Window's menu. I am so frustrated with this piece of **** laptop. I will never buy anything with this brand name. Nor will I allow my comrade's to purchase such ****.

your laptop probably in power saving mode, it is a preset to makes battery last longer. your power adapter might not being detected shown by red light, try to plug it firmly or use other power adapter if available
Swap out the ram one at a time testing to see if you can power up, making sure there is one in the memory slot at all times, if this works the piece in your hand is defective, no difference! the motherboard has major issues.
If the screen is looping back with the same mesage then there is a huge possibility that the windows boot manager is alrady corrupted. This could be caused by several issues e.g recent software installation, hardware changes, data corruption or virus issue. Try to boot the computer using safe mode and runs system restore. Restore the computer back from the date where it is working fine. Turn off the computer and turn it back on. Keep on tapping F8 the moment you press the power button. Select safe mode, if same thing will happen after selecting safe mode then it means that there is no wat for us to restore the computer other than to use the recovery disk of the computer and restore the computer to the factory state.
Could be many things, not necessarily in this order, but the ac adapter has gone bad(highly suspect), the power converter/charge board has gone bad, the power plug receptacle has an intermittent break in it from years of use (might be able to re-solder that one back on the board ) - or the new battery is not as new as you thought. In any event, You should send it to an authorized repair center - looking at a $100 bill or more.
"I have M305D S4830 laptop. I put it to sleep in the night. In the
morning when i tried to turn it on, it wouldnt start. The light on the
switch turns on and it charges the battery fine, but no HDD activity(but
it does spin up and stay), no screen, nothing. The fan turns on and
then turns off in 1 sec and then just the power indicator lights stay
on... i also checked cmos battery, removed it and put it back.its
voltage is also fine..."
Hello PPL! Maybe this WILL HELP you! I HAD absolutely the same problem >> 3 months of god **** stress, didn't find any solution, till one day i found on my Recovery CDs one note!! >> It sounds like: "BEFORE pressing power button, HOLD 'C' button and while Holding 'C' button push POWER Button ONCE!! to start Laptop, KEEP Holding 'C' button!!! untill appears TOSHIBA screen!" then release 'C'. After that, it will appear "Operating System not Found">>then just do a restart by pushing Power Button and Start again! For me, It Worked!! and i'm god **** happy now)...let me know if it Helped you, Good Luck!
The RAM may have been "jammed up" when it was put to sleep. You said you powered down completely and then started up again. How long did you leave it before turning it back on? Try it again, but this time, unplug the adapter from it and also take out the battery so there is absolutly no power going to it. Leave it like that for about 5/10 minutes and then try it again.
make sure that the computer was not on sleep mode or hibernation. word of advice, when you try to download something from the internet be sure that the ac adapter or charger is connected at all times to prevent the computer from going to hibernation. you can disable hibernation by going to toshiba power management console.
