Can't help you if you don't post error messages. Without them we don't know any more about the problem than you do.

It could be bad hardware or just Windows that has got into a mess. More information required. What were you doing on the laptop just before it failed to restart?
Have you just installed something, a driver for example?

at first it's just hang or stuck... then little by little it will fail to reboot sometimes it show start window normally after a while because we stop using for a while... when we open it all the lights are on bu screen was plain in black.. we can still do the f12 and f8 after that nothing happens... still did not try to remove battery just did was to load default settings...
is it a hardware problem : ( wishing and hoping it's just a reprogram problem

Have you, or is it possible someone else who had access to this computer...
- dropped it, or dropped anything on it, or otherwise exposed it to a physical jolt ?
- spilled liquid on it, or sprayed it with liquid, or exposed it to liquid such as rain ?

Since the video last worked properly all the time, has there been a power failure event that happened while the AC adapter was plugged in ?

Those things are the most frequent reasons something inside the laptop has been damaged.

Searching the web with toshiba satellite M200 finds that it probably first came out in early 2008 or late 2007 - your laptop may be that old. If it has been used constantly since it was new, it's common for you to have video problems with a laptop that has been used a lot.

You should ALWAYS have normal video while booting before Windows loads. If you don't, yet the leds on it are lighting up fine, there is probably something wrong with the built in display or with the wiring between the display and the video adapter.
If you DO NOT always have normal video while bootong before Windows loads. try connecting an external monitor.

Laptop no video (or video problems), and battery, AC adapter, power jack T shooting.

See response 1:

DO NOT plug in or unplug a monitor's video cable into / from a video port while the computer is running. Doing so can damage the monitor's circuits and/or the video adapter's circuits.

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything.

If you get no video on an external monitor, some laptops have a key combo that you must press to toggle the display to external video only / built in display video only / sometimes both - see the Owner's or User's manual for the model.

You haven't said whether you ALWAYS have normal video while booting before Windows is supposed to load, or not.
That can be fine, yet you can get no video in Windows itself, for various reasons.

In any case, if you haven't already tried it, try connecting an external monitor.

"....always makes sure we are carefully using the laptop..."

You can never be absolutely sure a laptop has not been damaged because anyone (known to you or unknown to you) who has had physical access to it could have done so.

It's quite common for a laptop or netbook to be damaged by it being dropped or having been exposed to liquid, whether you were aware of that or not. When someone else has damaged it, it's quite common for them to NOT tell you about that, especially if they're afarid of what your reaction would be.
