Default Toshiba laptop problem - HELP

Basically, whenever I turn my laptop on I can hear the laptop starting up for about 3-5 seconds before it shuts down, and the screen doesn't even come up. I've tried this with the charger plugged in and without the charger, but the same thing happens each time. I read online that it might be something to do with overheating, but the laptop doesn't even come on and I've left it for over 2 hours where the vents aren't blocked off etc. but nothing changes.

Thanks for any responses,

Did you try turning it on with the battery out? Only A/C power.
