I keep my Toshiba Satellite laptop on the bed while charging.
Today when I turned on, the power light and hard drive lights were on and green lights blinked. But my screen still shows black. Please help.

Can you hear the hard drive start up? Also if you look real close at the screen can you make out anything on the screen? The backlight may have burned out. Also was the computer running while it was charging? I'm guessing no as you said "you turned it on this morning."

I hope you have it on a piece of wood. If you just having resting on blankets or a spread, lint can get into the vents and cause the fans to get clogged and less effective. That means the laptop can run too hot. That kills hardware.
