After making about 20 photos outdoors I attempted to make some family photos indoors and camera would not shoot. Thinking that the issue was because of low light I expected a flash to pop up automaticaly but it did not. If I remember correctly, then I tried to turn it off and right back on but I think camera froze. I took the battery out and put it in immediately but could not turn the camera back on. I tried another battery but camera still did not power on. I recharged battery but camera is still completly dead. Top screen doesn't show anything. No matter what I do camera has no funcion or indication that has any power. Can someone help?

Try adjusting the viewfinder diopter. There's a little dial just to the right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder. You want to be looking at an unfocused view or a blank wall. Turn the dial until the focus brackets are sharp. Make sure you do this with your shooting eye.
Not sure this will help you: In AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual. Now, does another lens make the same noise of only this lens. Can you try the lens on another camera? What this is attempting to do is eliminate the camera or, the lens, that way you know where to go next.
Try etting your ISO lower, this camera can take hihger ISO images but at the expense of grain - shoot at 200 for flash and 100 indoors, and since you are looking for better photos play with the apeture settings go with a lower number for a larger apeture, and or slow down the shutter speed to 1/60th (any slower you need a tripod or VR lens) enjoy!
if after replacing the batteries with new ones or freshly charged ones your camera does not start up, high chances that something internal has failed - that needs some professional checks to be done. The cam is built to identify and report most issues that can be corrected by the user. so if it does not turn on, chances are you need support from a camera repair shop. (Alt : one step that you already tried could have helped is the factory reset - there should be one or two buttons on the cam that needs to be pressed together to reset the cam)
Try setting the white balance to fluorescent an compare. Also you could set your own white balance preset by shooting a white card as per page 59. Lastly you can play with the "tone adjustment" on page 80.

That's just the quirky autofocus of the d80. Try tilting the camera diagonally to focus and tilting back up to shoot.
Unfortunately, autofocus issues like those are the difference between a d80 and a d200/d300 :/
