Question about Computers & Internet
You could try removing the hard disk (search Toshiba website or consult the appropriate manual or search the internet for how to do this; try http://www.insidemylaptop.com/; there's probably an instructional video on youtube) and connect it to your other computer with the USB, by using a caddy/enclosure with an appropriate Internal interface (probably a SATA), or by using and adapter/cable. Either should cost no more than $10US / £5.
This might help you to recover any data you want. Better, make a clone of the Toshiba's HD (identical copy) so that you have a instantly useable back-up of that disk. This does not solve the problem that your laptop doesn't turn on however. Do you remember why you stopped using it ? It may be because it had developed a fault !! But problems with turning on can be any one of many. Start with checking that the PSU/mains adapter is actually working properly. Ask for help on the Toshiba users forum probably accessible through the Toshiba website.

I have the same problem. What I have found with mine is that if I can get the battery to take just a little charge then I can get it up and running. Here is how I do it. Disconnect AC power leave the battery in and start the laptop. As soon as thing start to run I plug the AC back in and it works fine from there on. Now mine is flashing as well now and I have a dead battery and it will not restart. Something I have noticed thought is it appears that the yellow light is blinking a code. This is what I have come up with. I appears to be flashing 323 as the code or could be 2 shorts 1 long then 2 shorts and then 3 shorts.
Anyone know where to find info on these flashing codes.

If you are familiar with your laptop, i.e. the locations of hard drive, try to take it out of the its bay and put it back again. Also, if you can have someone check your battery packs, because from my experience with this laptop, when the battery packs is not charging well, i got some booting up problems.

whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday
