    A few months ago I suffered frequent "Blue Screen of Death
    moments,after a while of cleaning things off my toshiba laptop and doin
    a few virus scans and such the blue-screens stopped. Yesterday night
    started listening to music on my laptop using it's own music player
    Twice the screen went blank momentarily,I dismissed this for a temporar
    issue and thought nothing of it as it carried on fine the rest of th
    Today I started up my laptop and BANG,Blank black screen after I put i
    my Administrator password
    Then I took out the battery,restarted as normal and then later on whil
    I was listening to music another blank screen came up though I coul
    still hear my music going on in the backround. Then I had to restart i
    as normal a few more times and noticed that the screen was so dark whe
    I switched it on,that I could barely see anything on the screen though
    could tell it was still running. It was almost as if someone had messe
    around with the brightness. This type of black screen was different t
    the normal blankscreens because then my laptop screen was TOTALLY blan
    no matter what angle I looked at it,it would then go into
    hibernation-type mode

    Sure sounds like hardware failure. You can try troubleshooting it yourself,
    take it to a competent local tech, or contact Toshiba tech support. If you
    take it to someone local, don't use a BigComputerStore/GeekSquad type of

    I agree with Malke that this sounds like hardware, however can you make
    100% sure that drivers are up to date.

    Blue screens and crashes of that type can be driver problems, especially
    video drivers. Unlike your average "Program" things like drivers can
    interact directly with the hardware, so any problems with them can upset
    the system so badly it makes error messages relating to the hardware
    hard to interpret.
