Does the laptop appear to bootup?
Does the hard disk appear to be spinning and the hard disk LED light flashing?
If so the laptop maybe booting up and the LCD screen maybe faulty. If so follow these instructions to determine the screen fault :-

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Have to do a reflow with flux and industrial heat gun, cover all the mother board with foil not the video chip, and carefully heat around chip like for 30 to 35 second, it works!!! That is the most common problem among laptops. Do that they have poor dissipation or clogged coolers, although you have to be very careful with this procedure...

Disassemble the laptop & remove all the chips (ram, processor, cmos battery, ect.) and stickers from the motherboard. Lay the board just above the eye of a stove on top of 3 shot glasses with the gpu and processor socket facing up. Turn on the stove and heat to 420 degrees varying temps between 420-450 for 6 or 7 minutes. Make sure you have a temp meter close by to keep things in check. The board will be very hot and fragile. After the 6 minutes of cooking, turn off the stove and let the board cool for 20 minutes or so. Reassemble laptop. Turn on and enjoy!
