Make sure that you have a charge. Try plugging it in and turning it on. If it still doesn't work then you might have a low battery, bad charger, or there could be a problem with the power supply. A bad charger and or a bad power supply would require replacements. You can probably find the charger at best buy or newegg.com. The power supply could probably be found at newegg.com. You might try taking it to a local electronics store and see if they have a different charger they can test it with, that way you would know for sure it isn't the charger.

Could be bad ram,hard drive or possibly a bad display panel or video card.Try using different ram and removing the hard drive then try it.Also,connect it to an external display and see if it shows video or not.If after trying these things it still isn't showing let me know and i'll try to help more.

Does it sound like the laptop booted up except the screen is black? Do you hear the fan running and the hard drive spinning? If so try the steps below.
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.
