Question about Toshiba Satellite A305-S6863 Laptop
Your system is not producing video output after the POST, which means the Windows video is messed up or there is a problem with a component like memory.
Because you can see the Toshiba splash screen, it tells you the LCD screen is fine. At least you know the LCD screen is working. See if you can get into the CMOS setup screen. I think it may be by pressing F2 on startup. If you can get to that, make sure the hardware is correct (like seeing if your hard drive is seen as installed).
You can also try to press F8 on startup and start the computer in safe mode. Very possibly something is trying to start when Windows starts and not completing its startup.
