Try removing the battery and power cable then holding down the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the battery and power cable then press power again to turn on. It's usually a hibernation problem. Some newer toshibas also had a motherboard problem. I'd look up your model on the support section of www.toshiba.com and see if there is an updated motherboard driver install for your make.

It could be two things, Jack: I would start by plugging it in to your charger for about 24 hrs to make sure it's not just the battery after that length of time not being used...OR, you might have to reset it to factory settings.
In the case of password lockouts or freezing, doing a hard reset on your android device could help you get back to the factory defaults.
First you need to make sure your tablet is powered off.
Hold down on the Volume + button and hold down the Power button at the same time.
As soon as the tablet's screen turns on, let go of the Power button but keep the Volume + button held down until you see a large Android in the center of the screen.
At this point you will see a screen with boot options.
Use the Volume - button to go down to Wipe Data Factory Reset and tap the Power button to select this option.
On the next screen use the Volume - button again to go down to Yes and use the Power button to select.
At this point it will be going through the wiping and resetting process.
When it's done you will see the first screen you came to when you first started the setup.
Just tap the Power button to select Reboot System Now.
Try a hard reset. The 10" Irulu has a reset on the right bottom edge. You'll need to stick a sharp pointy pen that fits in the in the small hole, push. Press the ON button and see if it starts. Resetting will change the time and date to the default setting of your unit.
I'm assuming this is a new device for you. Do/did you see the battery charging icon in the middle of the screen when you plugged it in? If so, great. If not you are having a problem charging your tablet. Most likely either a bad cord, a cord that's pulled out a bit on either end, or an outlet that's turned off or not working.
If the icon was present and indicates a full charge, then simply press and hold the power button for a few seconds and the screen should start right up.
If it worked for you in the past, check your power cord. I've gone thru 3 on mine.
I had many problems with my playbook. 1st thing you want to do is hit the power button on top if the playbook is still not on hit the volume up and down at the same time (I do right then left) then push the power button and sometimes it will be on.
