It's been in the state before--some kind of mega sleep mode. At that time, I call Toshiba Tech Support and then had me hit a key combination with the battery out and it came up after. I can't remember the key combination and tech support is tied up with calls today.

WHERE IS THE PASSWORD in BIOS OR IN WINDOWS IF ITS IN BIOS YOU HAVE TO RESET THE BIOS BY REMOVING THE CMOS BATTERY BUT IF PASSWORD IN WINDOWS XP YOU CAN TRY TO PRESS TWICE CTL+ALT+del TOGETHER AND PUT USER NAME ADMINISTRATOR AND PASSWORD BLANK OR ADMINISTRATOR OR ADMIN AND YOU CAN GET IN WINDOWS BUT IF IT DOSENT WORK THEN YOU HAVE TO FIND UTILITY LIKE PASSWORD REMOVER FROM THE NET AND TRY RESETING IT.
Go into the BIOS and reset it to factory default. If the drive still isn't being seen then you'll need to take the drive out of the laptop and then put it back in and be sure it reseats back into the slot properly.
If the drive still isn't being shown then its either the dvd drive or the motherboard is bad. You won't know until you try another known working drive. If the 2nd drive works then you know its the drive. If the 2nd drive doesn't work then you know its the controller on the motherboard thats bad and the motherboard would have to be replaced.
