Dear Tired Tootsies,
I must tell you that the majority of Laptop issues on Kioskea that are difficult to solve are related to Toshiba, a breed of their own. The last advice my father gave me was: "Son, stay away from Toshiba!"
I trust that when you removed the battery that you also unplug the power cable before holding the power button. Most often, this gets rid of what is called "flea" power and then the laptop breaths again.
I have two solutions for you and I think the second one is the best.
1. You can try restoring to factory out of the box settings by following the instructions hereunder:
2. Your laptop is under warranty, take it back for repair or exchange.
