Laptop screen blank when switched on

Problem:
Laptop screen is blank when I try to switch it on. I can feel the HDD spin, the LED lights up, the DVD drive spins and its LED lights up but the machine does not boot.

Solution:
Found the solution over here http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-24155-laptop-screen-blank-when-switched-on. The first tip worked for me.

… Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot… Just shutdown, put the battery back in you’re good to go…

This worked for the Toshiba Satellite Pro that I was using.
