I have a toshiba satellite pro and haven't used it or about 1-3 months, then when i tried to turn it on today it showed the cpu light flashed and the toshiba logo showed, then the screen went black. the cpu light and the disk light didn't flash and the laptop did nothing until he fan came on. I then restarted it and nothing happened at all (apart from the power light being on).

If the toshiba screen comes up i'll try getting into the boot menu or setup screen.

I'd say motherboard or HDD issues from what you've described so far.

Try pulling the HDD out and see if it behaves normally at BIOS level.

fixed it i removed the RAM (this was described as a common problem over the internet) and switched it round.
