Nothing comes on picture blank

A few things to try
1.) Check the laptop on an external monitor, do you get a picture
2.) Is there power to the laptop from the battery and the charger? Try to see if the charger indicator lamp is blinking green rather than steady green
3.) Can you hear hard drive / fan noises and are there any lights on the laptop?

If the charger is blinking, indicates that power is not making the circuit, check tightness of charging port, if tight, assume fault on motherboard / blown main fuse

If picture on external monitor and not on laptop, assume backlight on screen dead or possibly the inverter

If no noises from HDD or Fan and No lights on laptop, then fault with motherboard

If you do get fan noises etc, but get BLINKING lights on laptop, assume possible fault with graphics chip, repost with details of blinking lights / colour and specific model of laptop

Laptop not booting up and nothing showing up on the screen

What leds you can see blinking on laptop? Can you hear any bootup sounds? Sometimes my laptop hangs on standby or hibernat, then screen is black and some leds may blink. Usually i need to take charger and battery off for 10 seconds and boot up again. If that dont help then there must be some hardware damage.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.

Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
