I had the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite U305, struggling with it for the past 4 months and having to use Shutdown each time I was done using it. Very frustrating! Toshiba worked with me several weeks, telling me to re-install Vista and all the fixes, which took a lot of work backing up etc and this did not fix the problem. Today they finaly told me to try entering this special command and it fixed my problem. Maybe it will fix yours too.
Create a shortcut on the desktop and to make the shortcut, right click on the desktop, choose Create Shortcut, enter CMD.EXE where it asks you to "Enter the location of the item". This will create an icon on the desktop that looks like a mini-command prompt. Then on the desktop, RIGHT click on the CMD.EXE shortcut/icon you have created and select "Run as administrator". This will open a command prompt window. Here in the black-box with white letter window, enter the command "powercfg -h on" (without the quotes). Reboot and see if the problem is resolved. This fixed my Toshiba Satellite that had this problem.

i would suggest using a spare monitor and connect the cord that would normally go into a computer and connect it to the laptop and then plug in the power cord for the monitor and turn on the computer if this works and everything is ok then you know that the laptop screen may be faulty or there may be a loose connection somewhere ok?
best regards michael

i have encountered this problem before on many laptops and sometimes your monitor can just go bad or a piece of bad hardware in your laptop but in my case most of these problems are the monitor going bad. how old is this laptop

"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..."

"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!
