    Check w/ Toshiba or a Toshiba Service Ctr; not long ago Toshiba was having (known) battery issues... make this is what's rearing it's ugly head for you, now.

    Cheers,

    Take the battery out and try? When you tried the charged battery, was the charger plugged in?

    And those chargers can be specific to model, so I assume the other laptop you tried was the same type?

    Try removing the battery and just plug in the charger, the LT should work fine on just the charger.

    If it still won't turn on/boot, then it's the old electronic adage, "at some point everything fails, just because it was working yesterday does not mean it will work today".

    Good luck.

    How old is the laptop? As you seem to have surmissed, the laptop may have died. Perhaps a visit to a reputable technician would help.
