Well that most likely means the video on the motherboard has gone. Basically you would need a new motherboard.

The price to buy a new board and pay for the installation would be a decent amount of money. You should start looking for a new computer.

One thing you may want to try before you decide to junk it is to take out the RAM and switch the spots. If it has more than one chip then try taking one out and booting it and then swapping it to see if one of the chips are bad.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off


The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Monitor screen stays black even though it's on


Remove the memory from your unit - power it up it should beep if full communication is still happening across your m/board. No beeps you board has died. if it beeps and your using two diffent memory modules just fitt one leave the battery out and power it up = if no display pull power swap out the memory and try again. if display occurrs you have a defective memory module - throw that failed unit away

Laptop wont turn on at all!


try sensing if your cpu fan is working, it is under the power switch side, you can see small exhaust slots, put your hand beside it and feel if some air is coming out when you turn on your pc.

When you turn you pc on and only orange light blinks, it means that no power was getting into it, it blinks because no electrical power is coming from your power adapter and the battery is drained. Check your power adapter cable, this is the very cause why your pc is shutting down. usually the wire from the adapter to the pc is faulty.

Over heating can cause a computer not to turn on, or turn off after a period of time.  You might have some dirt and dust in your fan that you need to blow out with canned air.

You might also try a laptop cooling plate:
