Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A fes tests and ideas you may want to consider/explore:
  • power on / boot the laptop;
  • \015\012
  • note if it makes the normal sounds/beep when doing so;
  • \015\012
  • note if the LEDs lit up as they normally do;
  • \015\012
  • after a sufficient time, press the CAPSLOCK and note if the CAPSLOCK indicator would change state;
  • \015\012
  • if yes on the above, then most likely, a fault in the inverter (most likely) and/ or a faulty CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamp (likely);
  • \015\012
  • you could confirm by connecting an external monitor temporarily;
  • \015\012
  • alternately, you can shine a flashlight obliquely against the display screen and determine if there would be some semblance of the desktop albeit very dark;
  • \015\012
  • if no, then it would be a hardware fault on either the motherboard, memory, and a host of other possibilities;
  • \015\012
  • if so, then your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional not unless you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) which would require familiarity with electronic/digital components and circuitry, use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
Its a laptop?
\015\012just remove the ram by opening the back socket as some screws will be connected on the socket that has to be removed first to remove the lactch under which ram is located.check out the laptop only on power adaptor.remove the battery and keep it out.if the laptop works on adapter withour battery that means the battery is faulty.but if still has the same problem on adapter also.it has to be checked at a local repair center.as they will have all the required parts in spare to replace it and check out whats the faulty in your laptop.that has to be replaced.
