Unplug the power cord. Remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Re-connect the power and attempt a boot. Shut down, put the battery back in and you're good to go. This advice was on another site, but helped me with a computer startup issue once

Hi! The ribbon of the monitor may have been damaged. You will need to have it replaced to get your laptop back to its normal working condition. Hope this helps and have a good one!

It could possibly mean a faulty hard drive. But before we conclude, try to boot to safemode through advanced boot options. How to get there? tap on F8 as soon as your computer turns on. If you get the advanced boot option, then good. Try to choose the option that says Last known good configuration first. If it does not work, try it again but this time choose safemode. If all else fails then you might need to do a full re-installation of the operating system. If still trying to do a re-installation does not detect the hard drive, then you will need to have it replaced.

SOURCE: laptop turns on fine but screen is black

Try plugging in a regular computer monitor into the back of the laptop. If it works, that tells me that possibly your laptop's display is bad. There is probably a socket in the back that looks like this: h9rbwygu6jioaaaaabjru5erkjggg==

Right click anywhere on the desktop, open the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom. You'll see a box that reads monitor, set this to never. That should take care of the screen shutting down. As far as the orange light, I'm guessing that's the battery light, and it's time for a new battery.(It should be green and flashes orange when the battery no longer works properly)
