Not sure what is up. When I power on the pc, all I get is a "white" screen. It never loads up the BIOS or the OS. I cannot access the BIOS. It just powers on as "white" and that is all. Could this be a video thing or something else?

You can try with Free Boot Managers and Multi-Boot Loaders you can find lot of free stuff available in online. So download and follow the instructions.
OSL2000 is an advanced multi boot manager you can install multiple OS in a Single PC.
New screen, I expect. That's the liquid crystal seeping out, especially if it's not some prank software someone installed. Can you test another screen? You didn't get one of those easygoing replacement warranties, did you?
Sounds like u need to go into CMOS (System Setup) upon boot & make sure that the HARD DRIVE is the FIRST item in the BOOT ORDER and NOT your CD DRIVE. Also, make sure your Hard Drive shows up in the CMOS. If it does, then note what it says about the hard drive as it boots... If it is a bad hard drive, then nothing will install to it unless it is fixed or replaced.
Black Screen with White bar is when Windows Vista loading. So it seems there is maybe problem with Windows. When your Toshiba is starting up - try press F12 to enter Bios, to check if everything is OK. If you have Vista on CD/DVD - you can try press "C" on keyboard when Toshiba start, to boot from CD/DVD and start to repair your OS, or reinstall it completely.

do a power drain...take out the ac adapter and the battery and then press and hold down the power button for 1 min....
then go to the BIOS screen and set a BIOS default...
then do a bios update from your computer's manufacturer's homepage...
When u power up the computer press "del" or F2 key then check your harddisk is detected or not. Also load optimal defaults settings. then restart the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.then change screen resolution to 1024*768. Please let me know.
If the video card is an "onboard type" Is is not easy to replace.If you have a seperate video card, you may replace it with a like type, PCI, AGP,PCIe,etc. or if you computer has an open slot a video card can be added and turn off the "onboard video" in start up screen BIOS .
Since this is a GATEWAY(I do not know the model) computer you also always have the option of a complete restore .
