Sounds like a hard drive crash. Locate where the hard drive is on your machine and listen closely when you hit the power button. If you don't hear it start to spin, or if you hear any clicking or dull thunking sounds, then the hard drive is shot snd needs to be replaced.

Your hard drive has probably gone bad and it does not have a bootable device to use on start-up.

Try reseating the RAM modules. If that doesn't work test the RAM in another laptop. If nothing works chances are you have a faulty motherboard.

Blank screen. Remains blank


Power down, remove the battery, remove the power plug. Hold down the power button for at least 30 seconds. Remove and reinstall the memory module(s). Re install the power plug and try to power back up and see if it works. If it does, reinstall the battery ad you're done. If not, get back to me for some more ideas and further diagnosis.
Thanks and have a good day!

BLANK SCREEN


i think your system has crashed so you need to do recovery or do a fresh installation of your operating system. Your system is unable to boot due to corruption in system files.
