It sounds like the power inverter or backlight has failed.
T%urn it on & let it "start" .
Take a flashlight ["torch" if you're in the UK] & shine it on the screen.
If you can see a faint disply then one of the 2 above has failed.
If you can not see any thing on the screen the video adapter may have failed.
