The backlight must have turned Off. Look at the F keys ( F1, F2 etc) that has picture of the LCD. Press Fn + the key that has the LCD picture to turn on the backlight. If nothing happens, try to use external monitor. If you see the display using the external monitor then the problem is the LCD already.
Hi there if you do not hear any sound from computer this mean the sound or audio driver is missing simply go to www.ibm.com look for support and download, look for your computer model then select the sound or audio driver download and install it and you will be fine

Hi, try to boot into safemode, turn your system on then keep on tapping F8 to get the windows advance Menu screen, select safemode.
In the safemode windows go to Control panel and check your power options, you will see what time frame your system has for the LCD when turning off.
If this does not fix the issue, try booting into safemode with networking for you to be able to go online in safemode try updating your BIOS from your Manufacturers Website, Updating your bios may fix the issue.
the battery might be so dead that it's faulting the charging system, remove the battery, remove the power then plug it back in (with out the battery) and try turning it on,.. if that doesn't work try looking up how to reset the bios (or remove the bios battery) for a BIOS reset.
could be the ac adapter, battery dead, first check them. if you find nothing there then it could be internal problems. if you know someone who has a charged battery try using it in yours. also try removing the battery and only using the ac adapter only.
