Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Have you tried a "Cold-Start" ? unplug laptop, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10secs or so. Replace battery, plug in laptop, re boot. Does it get to the pre-boot stage? does it show the options BOOT MENU, SETUP, BIOS or similar options?

SOURCE: Failure to boot
In these cases, I'd strongly recommend checking the RAM to ensure that isn't the problem. If the RAM is fine, then the issue is likely with the laptops motherboard. In which case, it would need to be sent back to the manufacterer.

its not a booting issue if you hear the music, it loaded windows. you might have a display issue, shine a light on it to see if you can see any faint images, if you can the backlights out if not it might be the display adapter on the MOBO, in either situation calling toshiba would be required for a repair, or otherwise take it into a shop, but first try a power reset,
unplug it and remove the battery, then hold the power button down for one minute, replace the battery and power cord and try to boot again. if this fails call toshiba, its definately a hardware issue.
