Question about Toshiba Satelite 5205-S505 Notebook
This sounds like it could be a faulty laptop battery. I would suggest plugging the system into AC power and then remove the laptop battery from the system. If the system boots then the issue is with the battery. If the laptop still does not boot, next thing to check would be to make sure that the hard drive is seated completely in the drive bay. Sometimes the hard drives can work themselves loose from moving around. By opening the drive cover and pulling the drive out and then reseating back into its slot can sometimes resolve the issue as well.

Tips for a great answer:
Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.
Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.
Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.
Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.
Replace the opened cover.
Replace the battery and power cord.
Turn on the computer.
The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.
Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.
hope this helps
