Toshiba boots up erratically

Specs: Windows 7
Hey there! I have a bizarre problem with my Toshiba laptop: Out of the blue, it wouldn't boot up anymore. All it does is turn on, the fan runs for about 3 seconds, all the lights blink and the screen remains black. But when I unplug it and try booting up over and over again, it finally catches. Sometimes that takes thirty tries, other times only a couple.
You guys have any advice? I'm a complete moron when it comes to computers...

Well if you get it to catch, backup your important data to dvd's or a flash drive etc. Download seatools and do an extensive test, it works on any hard drive. This will tell you if the hard drive is failing.
