Generally if when you turn on the computer and do not see the Dell Logo then about 90% of the time it is caused by a faulty LCD/inverter cable/video card

Try running the PSA diagnostics byt holding down the FN key before turning on the computer. if the computer starts generating a series of beeps it would mean that the LCD is not working and can be caused by a bad LCD or a faulty inverter cable.

Another way to test it would be to connect the computer to an external monitor.

Screen do not on

Does the screen show anything at all during boot-up (BIOS screen, startup info?) If so, try connecting an external monitor after startup and see if the issues persist when setting the video output to the external monitor. If that doesn't work try booting in safe mode to last known configuration that worked (usually done by hitting F2, F5, or F8 shortly after powering on.

Power light comes on can hear runnig-black screen never boots up

Remove external devices, remove battery and power, then reposition battery and power and try again. If no go you can try re-seating the memory, disconnect power sources and touch a metal surface to discharge static. You will see panels at the bottom of the unit. The one for the memory is usually the one in the center of the whole unit. This video will show you to remove and reposition memory.
