HP Pavilion 700 Wont Turn On

I have an HP Pavilion 700. It only turns off anymore by holding the on/off button on the tower, so I held it til it turned off. Then I rearranged the room and plugged everything back it (the computer was plugged back into the same outlet it was plugged into earlier).
But it won't turn on. There's a green light on the back that's on. It turned off a few times when I was pushing the on/off button on a lot. But it has since turned back on.
The front light below the on/off button has stayed off the entire time.
What do I do? The electrical outlet is working fine, as is the power strip. And when I unplug the computer, the rear green light turns off.
Your help is greatly appreciated!

Screen wont turn on

remove the battery and the power from the laptop.....then press and hold down the power button for 20 seconds ...... attach the AC power only and turn on the laptop this should turn on the system.
This drains the capacitors on the system (safety feature of laptops ... quite common)

If this does not work remove the Ram and reseat it ... something has either come loose or the backlight on the LCD has gone bad.
