The solution to your problem is probably not the monitor, follow these steps:
1. Connect and boot your computer with 2 different monitors.
2. If it does'nt work with either of them the problem is from another computer component.
Posible Problems:
1. Your video card may be damaged or moved from it's slot.
2. Your proccessor may be damaged.
Posible solutions:
1. If you have computer hardware knowledge open the case
2. Remove the Video card.
3. Insert it back or insert another video card from a friend.(if it works with your friends card, obviously the video card is the problem)
4. Restart your computer and see if it works.
Now if it does'nt work after that you will have to replace your proccessor with one that works, from a friend, because you say your computer boots but if your monitor doesn't work you don't know for sure if it boots corectly.
The steps above are only for people with hardware knowledge, if that is not your case you should contact a computer service.

Good Luck

Coffe spill now screen on lap top not working


No magic fix here Philip. The only thing to do is immediately remove ALL power, AC adapter (Charger) and Battery, and open the laptop up, remove the CMOS Battery, (RTC Battery), and dry it out THOROUGHLY.

After you are SURE all components inside the laptop are dry, reassemble.
Install the Battery, then the AC adapter.

Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

IF, the computer is still good you need to give it a fighting chance.

B) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

There are MANY screws that look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

C) Make a personal record as you disassemble.
Make notes, and drawings. (Legible)
Use a digital camera, or video camera if available. Use good lighting.

It's nice to have a personal record to refer back to, in case you are interrupted.

My system refuses to boot


You could have a faulty hard drive, reseat the hard drive, if it still doesn't work take it out and connect it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if this computer sees the hard drive and see the contents of the external drive the the hard drive is OK then you could have a faulty disk controller or Windows needs to be reinstalled again.
If you cannot see the hard drive then it is dead and you need a new one.

Toshiba Satellite M30 - Power Problems only boots when in vertical position


These are known to have a grounding problem between the speakers and mainboard - They were actually sued and eventually settled to extend the warranty. unfortunately the special extenstion program ended a few months ago and toshiba no longer will fix this. The workaround is to add shielding to it.

See this link about it:

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/04/06/satellite-m35x-a70-a75-lockup-freezes-reboots/

If that doesnt fix the problem then you may have motherboard problems and at that point it would be best to part this laptop out and replace it.

Toshiba Satellite turn ON problem.


Remove the battery and then try to run your laptop direct from the mains supply, if this works it proves your battery is NFG and you need another.
