Doesn’t boot - flashing error code

Tekst:

'''Toshiba portege x20w-d'''
 
Hello!
 
I was using this computer when all of a sudden it froze, and a buzzing sound was heard from the speakers. It wouldn’t respond to Ctrl-alt-delete even. It was completely frozen. I decided to do a hard reset, so I held the power button until it switched off. After that, no matter how I pressed the power button, it wouldn’t turn on. It won’t charge (or at least it doesn’t say it is). The charging led is flashing in a pattern of 8 flashes. 6 short, 1 long and 1 short. Does anyone have an idea of what might have gone wrong? Does anyone have a list of error flashes? Might the code be binary (being a series of 8)? Would that make an error code of 2, or of 128? Can anyone decode this?
 
Thanks!
 
(Btw, I am aware that this will be some sort of issue probably to do with the motherboard, and that I should send it to get fixed under law, but this question is more about understanding what happened to it before I send it off)
