Ive had two different toshibas in the last two months that just clonked it for no reason, the bored was bad.
Test the hdd using an external reader
if no vga is being output, check using ohmeter as well then it could be motherboard.
If overheating, check for fan functioning and clear of debris. also check paste, but if its not even posting its prob trash.
Toshiba is hit or miss now, and hp is a gamble at how long you have with it.
