Blank screen, and blinking Power On light

I have tried every so called solution offered on the Toshiba website and still can not get this laptop to start up. ive tried the Fn keys and f5, i've tried just the battery & no ac adapter, just the adapter and no battery... all i get is a blinking orange ac adapter light. it blinks twice then pauses, then blinks 6 times and starts over the same sequence. PLEASE HELP!!

    I forgot to mention that it continues this blinking sequence until you physically take out the battery or unplug the adapter.

My toshiba at200 table 10.1 wont turn on

1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, like the toshiba boot up screen or something like that. Or is it completely blank (black color) always.

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). This is important to confirm.

3. Also, when you press power button, do you see the LED lights on laptop blinking or solid green (which ones are in blinking/solid) and do hear any sound ? Or do you feel that your laptop doesnt even try to boot.

4. Can you hear any Beeps when you try to turn on the computer. If yes, what is the sequence of those beeps.

If you answers are -
no image
only the satellite light is blue, the powercord is blue and the battery is blue
no noise

Please do the following carefully and let me know result :
1. Shutdown and Unplug your laptop.
2. Remove the battery from the laptop.
3. Wait 2-3 minutes

5. Then release the finger and wait one more minute.

Toshiba a135 laptop screen goes blank during battery use. Only way to recover is to put the laptop to sleep blinking orange and then restart. This action keeps the screen on. Could this be a bios problem?...

It's probably not a BIOS problem.

You should go to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Power Options --> Change plan settings --> change advanced plan settings.

Try configuring the setting for "Plugged in" and "On Battery" to be the same. That way your laptop won't go through wierd configurations when you unplug.

Try cleaning your computer with compressed air too.
