Hello donras,

When you plug the charger and the light blinks, can you hear any sound of spinning the fan or the hard drive?
If you can't and the warranty of your laptop has expired I suggest you to take out the hard drive and try to connect it to another computer through SATA-USB cable. If your hard drive spins up on a different computer and it is recognized there, but cannot power up on your laptop, then the problem is hiding probably in the power supply unit on your motherboard. You could bring your Toshiba to a technician to make a test of the power connector and/or the power jack center because they might get damaged.

Hope this helps.
