    Try this before going any further ( after some sarcastic replies from some ignorant users of Fixya, I'd prefer to establish a few facts before offering an official solution):
    1.) Unplug the AC power and battery, press the power button and hold ffor 30 seconds, this will clear the CMOS.
    2.) Reconnet to AC power and try booting
    3.) can you hear any fan activity / HDD or DVD noises?
    4.) has anything been spilled on the laptop?

    If this does not solve the problem, repost with results and I'll try to help further, although i'm thinking that you may have amotherboard failure

Remove all power sources.
Remove hard drive and Ram.
Fit AC adapter and press on. If the laptop complains as there are now no periferals, power down the laptop.
If it still dosn't power up at all, you have a motherboard fault and cannot continue. A Toshiba Computer Repair Cetre will help you out.
If it did work;
Disconnect power source.
Fit RAM and try again. If that still works but now states that there is no OS, power it down and with power source removed fit the hard drive.
Power up again with AC Adapter. Hope fully all now should be well or at least you now know where your fault lies.
I hope that helps.

Toshiba Sattlite, boots but black screen. Caps Lock light is on and F10& F11 key is okay.

Corrupted operating system. Start over with a restore disc and if you do not have one buy one you will need it from the factory. Re-install the whole system over again. Insert the disc in the slot and power it on select boot from DVD or CD-Rom which ever you have. Follow the onscreen instructions. John

Remove the battery first, then leave the laptop for 30 minutes( without battery attached to laptop).

Then try put the battery again and plug in the main charger to laptop, then let it charges for 1 hours, after all done, try start your laptop, hope it works!!!

If i hold the fn button down my keyboard works,

It would appear that you have number lock turned on. Try turning it off by pressing and holding Fn key and then F10/F11/F12 key (can't remember which one is for number lock). That should release your keyboard back to normal.
