Seems there are two versions of this Toshiba... Though why one would make it "impossible" to remove a battery...?

This info from Toshiba-land may of interest:

Can you get to bios setup? I'm wondering if it's a resolution issue when it boots your OS or a hardware issue. If linux has a safe mode boot option have you tried that?

Have you tried an external monitor?

Your specs said 'linex' which I assumed meant you have the linux operating system installed on it.

You seem to be fixated on removing the battery. Maybe it's not a battery problem. Did you try booting to safe mode as I mentioned in # 2 above?

You said 'I get the toshiba when laptop starts but after that is just a black screen' which I assume means you get the toshiba logo screen. If that's true then the screen and its connection must be OK. After that, when it starts booting into windows, if the resolution somehow got set to something the screen can't handle it's possible you'd end up with a blank screen. But windows in safe mode will have a lower resolution and should show on the screen. This might help:

but it sounds like you've already tried it. You should also see if you can get into bios setup. I believe on that model you hold down F2 while powering it on.

My daughters Toshiba laptop has a battery that isn't meant to be removable but all that holds it in place are a couple of screws. No need to dismantle the entire housing.
