I've had Toshiba Netbook NB-205 for a year, and the display won't show. The fan will come on for a like two seconds and then cut off. If I need to replace the fan, then I'm fine with that, but if there's...

Try removing the battery and starting it up with only AC power.

Sometimes it doesn't charge properly and will turn off after a second. Removing the battery will sometimes fix this.

Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.
