I turn it on and i hear it booting up by the screen remains black
Hey there, if the screen remains black during the entire thing (not even the bios or any text showing up while booting).
I'm sorry to tell you but if that's the case then this is not something you can fix by yourself.
I recommend going to your local PC store and having them look at what exactly is wrong.
PLEASE NOTE that you should ask them to first only look at what is wrong. If the screen needs to be replaced, it can cost nearly as much as the laptop itself and you may want to consider just buying a new laptop instead.
However this is the worst case scenario, chances are also that the connection with the screen kinda loosened up by opening and closing your laptop too much, in which case it should be pretty cheap to fix it.
Of course if you still have warrenty on your laptop that would be great.
Another thing you can do, which i DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL unless you have experience opening up laptops, is looking at it yourself, and checking if the connection is loose. Or if you come to the conclusion that your screen is broken then you could buy a new one for about 200 dollars (this was the price for my laptop's screen anyway) and putting it in yourself, but once again sorry to repeat but this is highly not recommended if you don't have experience, if you do decide to do this please do proper research on which screen you should buy etc.
I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate my solution.
