From another link, try the following:

"...disconnect the charger,remove battery,press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.Reconnect the battery and charger.Turn on system and check if it turns on"

Had a black screen on a Toshiba was fixing for a friend. I could hear the fan, but neither the disc light or the screen would come on.

Solution? Read a tip from years ago by user @Rhedo to remove the battery, hold power for 60 seconds, and then plug in power, leaving out the battery.

Another of their tips was to push gently in around the plug hole - it may help reseat a dodgy connection. I did both at the same time so not sure which one worked but laptop started up and proceeded to Windows 7 normally.

Be good to get some more details of your computer, operating system etc.

Please note that this was from August and the OP has never popped back with additional questions, details, or a fix.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
