    Laptop turns on, but nothing happens


    Hi,
    today I came back home, turned on my laptop normally, and it didn't go through!
    My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L675D, originally equipped with Windows 7 and then I upgraded it to Windows 8 with an original code.
    Basically, after a turn it on, the fans start for a couple of seconds and then they go really quiet (but I can still hear them) while nothing happens on the screen. It remains completely black for the whole time! The laptop is clearly on and the lights of the charger and of the power are enlighted.
    I tried using just the charger, just the battery, and both of them, but nothing changes.. Plus the CD reader looks to be working properly.
    That's all I found out for now..

    Any idea? :/

    Try booting into the safe mode (F8) to load the basic windows video drivers.

    Try to disconnect the AC charger and remove the battery from your laptop. While the battery and Charger are disconnected try to hold and press the power button for about a minute. Then reconnect the charger and turn on your laptop.

    I tried and it didn't change anything.. And I tried cicking F8 as well, with the same result! The laptop doesn't even reach the point when I can enter in the safe mode, I think..

    Then you might get your hands into your laptop and try removing the RAMs and find out any beep signs..
