Optical and Hard drive checked. Num lock key works.

On and Off button works. Screen lights to black but will not show Toshiba or launch Windows. Motherboard was changed with guaranteed replacement.

Bob, connect an external monitor and see if that shows anything. Sounds like either not all connections were seated or a bum LCD

Buddhika Mahesh, "Memory has been checked" and "Motherboard was changed with guaranteed replacement." so that eliminates most of your answer. It is a good answer, but always read the question carefully first;-)
