Laptop screen blank when switched on

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.

Found the solution over here 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.
