I am almost positive that you are having a problem with the LCD screen. The only thing that keeps the backlight working is to leave all computer on, just close the lid to switch off the screen while not using it. Make sure that you still can see a faint image on the screen when the backlight is off. Further, unless I wait a period of time mins before restarting, it gives me a narrowed compressed left-justified Toshiba logo screen and then halts. Is there are some settings for the contrast and brightness in BIOS?
