First, try a proper system reset. Power off the laptop, unplug the AC from the unit, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and AC, power on, if you see the Toshiba logo, press the 'F2' key to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, and then try to boot into Windows.
If you need to post back here, we need the Windows version you're running like Windows Vista 64bit.
Please let us know what happens. Good luck.

Try starting it on the AC only and no battery. If that doesn't work try starting it on the battery only with no AC.
If these things don't work you're probably looking at a repair. See this thread, specifcally all the posts by Axle1980. He had to replace the power supply board for his unit.
Please let us know how it turns out. Good luck.

My husband and I went to Best Buy and they tested the adapter and it was dead. Since we had the adapter less than 30 days they exchanged it for free. Plugged in the adapter and computer turned on and it is working fine. Don't understand why the adapter went bad so fast.

Excellent!! All computers, and their various components, have immediate, or almost immediate failures. Just a fact of life with a very complicated machine.
Thanks for letting us know what worked. Happy computing!
