Closed my Toshiba satellite laptop, moved to another room, and when I opened it back up the screen never can back on.. I can hear it starting up but nothing shows on the screen. Tried to screen mirror it to the tv using FN+F5 but nothing happens.. I desperately need this computer working asap.
 
Try this...

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.

Personally I would never move a laptop until its properly shut off or gone into hibernation especially if it uses a normal hdd and not solid drive since it has moving parts. If its not a solid state drive possible that moving it around to early before it shut down caused some errors on the hard drive. Follow webworking's advice first then try a safe boot if that fails, if safe boot works then its a good sign, when in safe mode, open command prompt and type "chkdsk" and press enter to start a windows repair.
