Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
Power is on and fan is functioning. USB ports have power. CD drive spins. Heat is produced. Monitor is blank. Connect to external monitor is also blank. HD light does not show it being accessed. Caps does not turn on.
Try to clean its memory card or reseat it. You can use clean soft eraser to clean its edge connector. Do this when you first disconnect battery, off, and no other power source is connected to your unit.
This is the first step, then if still nothing check your hard drive and cdrom reseat if needed.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
