There is two problem possible for these symptoms:
1st one is due to inverter
2nd one is due to screen backlight lamp (CCFL)
You need technical support. We may need some components to be changed. If you think you can do it on your own, see http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/09/05/troubleshooting-laptop-with-backlight-failure/

SOURCE: Problem with startup of XPS 1530
Well I aleredy encont that problem. You must do an "dell factory restore". I dont remember how to do it but call dell and ask for. If your laptop isin't in warenty they should tell you where to find it (free). If you are in warenty they will tell how to set the factory restore. I must warn you than there is a big risk to loose all your data in your hard drive (incluing your windows seting). Good luck

SOURCE: Thinkpad T61 Battery Problem
It is the same situation as what faced in the past few weeks! My battery has been used for years!
Generally speaking, our laptop battery also has its deadline for 1 year. After using it over the battery for 1 years, it will drop to about 60-70 percents of its capacity.
From what you said in the above, I think your battery might be damaged for being unreasonable used.
I suggest that you you should buy the new, and i have good websites for you: take a look if interested:

I guess a new software install could have caused the issue. The could be conflict between devices.
Remove all the USB devices connected to the laptop. Remove external mouse and keyboard also if any.
Try booting. If it still does not boot then restart system and keep pressing F8 to view the boot options. If you get the boot screen then choose Safe mode option and try booting in to the desktop. Once the desktop is available go to Start-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.
If F8 does not work then probably you can do a complete reinstall of the OS by pressing F11 or Ctrl+F11. You will lose all the data in the system using this option and the system will be restored back to its factory settings. (This option works only if the laptop has manufacturer provided OS in it)
else you need to contact Toshiba tech support for any hardware related issues
Hope it helps !
Good Luck !

If you power on with an external monitor connected, no function-F5 is necessary - it will default to the external monitor automatically.
I don't think Darkman is on the right path here (sorry Darkman). It is possible, but I suspect not. A damaged/corrupt page file won't fix itself automatically after 5-7 days and suddenly boot the PC.....honestly. If there are bad sectors on the hard drive though, this could certainly be the issue. We'll get to this in a bit....
We need to eliminate a few potential problems first.....like sketchy hardware.
Please remove the ram and clean the contacts on it, and the slot(s) with a pink pencil eraser. You want to make the contacts clean and shiny. The ram chips are under an access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Try to boot. If no good, read on.
Please try removing the hard drive drive from the laptop (see below). Try booting with no hd first. If you see an Acer splash screen (logo), and then 'no operating system found', then the hard drive is likely the issue:
If it boots consistently with no hard drive, then please try this:
Enter the bios of the laptop by pressing either F2 or del at boot time when you see the Acer logo. Go to 'boot' options, and make sure the optical drive is the first boot device at the top of the list. From here, you need to get a Windows XP cd (yes, I know you're running vista). Put the hard drive back in, boot the laptop to the cd and select the option to repair windows from the recovery console. Once you have a command/dos prompt, type the following:
chkdsk c: /r
This command will check the hard drive for file corruption and bad sectors. This will take 1-3 hrs probably, depending on the size of the hard drive. If it indicates that data was recovered from bad sectors, and the laptop boots now, shut it down, take it to a reputable repair shop immediately and ask them to clone your hard drive onto a new one. Bad sectors = impending doom.
If it won't boot with the hard drive removed....try removing the optical (dvd) drive. If still no joy with hd and optical removed, let me know.
You can access the hard drive from an access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the cover, remove any retaining screws for the hard drive and simply slide it to disengage the connector and pop it out. If still no boot, one screw on the bottom of the laptop will release the optical drive. Flip the laptop over, and try to visualize where the optical drive sits in the laptop. The screw will be near one of the corners of where the optical drive drive sits.
Please let me know how you make out. Don't worry... I will help you ascertain the cause of the issue :)

Testimonial: "Brilliant. Will try this tomorrow and get back you. Many many thanks. Adrian."
Do not re-install anything...
It is an overheating issue. The "paste" between the processor and the heat sink has deteriorated over time and the heat sink is separated from the cpu or not making a good heat conduction contact.
Although it is possible for you to do (take laptop apart), I suggest a repair shop.... but get an estimate and have it done while you wait... don't buy any other "services"..
Hope this helps!
