Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Can you try plugging the laptop into an external monitor and enabling the external video? I think on a Toshiba, that's a Function +F5 key together (or holding the function key and pressing the F5 key.) Repeatedly using that combination should cycle through using the built-in LCD panel only, LCD +external or external-only. If none of them work, there is a good chance you have a dead video card in your computer at which point you have two options: 1) replace the whole computer or 2)replace the on-board video (sometimes it's not built-in to the motherboard, but attached to it so it can be easily replaced once you open the case.)
My guess, based on limited experience, is that if the on-board video is bad, there's probably more damage than just the on-board video and you might as well replace the whole thing. There's a possibility you might find the same make/model of laptop on eBay or somewhere like that with a damaged LCD panel that you can use to rebuild yours.
