Can you give a little more information? Did the Laptop Fall? What Color is the light that blinks? Amber or Green? So far it Sounds to me that you Power Supply is Dead or Bad and or not charging the Battery....
First Check the battery status light? Is the Power Supply Light (Lite). you might want to try removing the battery and using only the Power supply!

If it doesn't boot at all not even to bios then Id say you got bad ram. If it boots to bios then shuts down its a heat problem and it needs to be cleaned or the fan replaced. If it boots to bios then a black screen and all lights are on then Id say hard drive. If it doesn't power on at all or lights come on but nothing else then the GPU has more than likely got to hot and solider has broken down losing connection. I haven't seen this on a dell but have seen many HPs do that.
See if your fans and drives are spinning up fast enough, perhaps image a fresh drive if you can; certainly it's time to resolve BIOS state issues from discombobulating the DDR. Er, how many DIMMs are in there now? 1? Is it good?

fails battery out so leave it out they love to short.
so when it fails test 2 is, hit the F10 or ESC key promptee
went it fails to boot, check BIOS key first, if BIOS fails.
be more clear.
what does it do when it wont turn on.
BIOS dead. screen 100% dead, and not even text
BIOS works even with HDD and DVD drive pulled.
that is the acid test on PCs.
the screen must say, hit F10? or ESC to enter setup, means HP BIOS. it must or power is no good. get a new power pack
the shut down tell me lost power, that can be the power pack 19vdc
or the jack at the mobo if failing to said pack.
try side pressure on that jack if at anytime the power button fails.
it self shuts down, I got that but lets fix , cant boot first.
that is how to fix this.
power on failures, are you saying the power key fails. some times
and the fan does not run every time.?
this old LT uses CCFL back lamps.
that love to fail. so when it shut down did the fan die.
did the HDD stop spinning ear to bottom? if not the CCFL is failing.
using and external monitor proves this every time,
do the flash light trick?
Power Light Shuts Off
If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
Power Light Flashes
If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair
