unplug your laptop, remove the battery and wait for three minutes. then install back your battery and power on. right after you power on your laptop press shift key together with f9. release the keys when the laptop begin to boot. follow the instruction on the display.
When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.
I would suspect a glitch in the MBR/software, a black screen with a white cursor in the top left, BUT, Try this , when you shut down always unplug, remove battery when you use at home connected to AC. At boot in BIOS, BOOT sequence, change to Boot from HDD first. Also remove DVD's, CD's from the DVD/CD rom drive, if the machine has boot from DVD/CD rom as a default, it will try to read the disk in the drive first, delaying a switch to second HDD boot. This is a general idea in the Boot sequence procedure: http://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/change-boot-order-xp-vista/
Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor and see if all is working Ok with that, if it is, then you may need to get the laptop display serviced - if it does the same on the external display, then try booting the laptop from a CD or DVD such as an OS install CD (Windows or Linux) or a boot utility CD such as Hiren's Boot CD - this will allow you to test whether the problem lays with your installed operating system or with the hardware. . . . Note: do not go any further than the initial displays if using an OS install CD unless you are using a Linux Live boot CD which will not destroy your installed operating system. . . .See

The first thing to try is to plug in an external monitor to the laptop while the laptop is off, then turn it on and see if the screen comes on. If the screen comes on and the laptop boots like normal then your LCD is bad, if the screen never comes up and you still think your laptop is booting in the background (for instance you can hear the start up sound and see the hard drive working during boot) then the video card on the laptop will be bad.
If the laptop only seems to turn on, but it appears there is no sign of it booting then there will be a different issue. At that point the first thing to do is remove anything that is not needed to boot the laptop. Remove the hard drive, the cd-rom drive and any extra memory trying the memory one at a time if there is more then one. All of these should be easy to remove and under access panels on the bottom of the laptop. Once these are removed try to boot the laptop, if you see the screen come on then that means something you removed is bad, you can put everything back one at a time trying the laptop after each thing you put back until you find the culprit. However if the laptop still will not boot then either the memory or the motherboard is bad.
If you have a VGA cable and a monitor, attempt to plug this into a monitor to verify that the laptop will not boot into your OS (Windows generally). If it does end up booting into your OS, then it sounds like your LCD has died or become unplugged inside the laptop.
Hi there. Take the battery out and try to boot on AC power only, if it boots up, turn it back off and reinsert the battery and try to boot again. If it still suffers from the same symptoms please post back for more advice.
