I'm responding to the replies to my problems, again thanks for trying to help. I've also been doing some reasearch this issue and tried the following
1. UNPLUG THE POWER
2. REMOVE BATTERY
3. HOLD POWER BUTTON FOR 30/60 SECONDS
4. REATTACH POWER AND START THE LAPTOP
5. SHUT BACK DOWN
6. PUT IN THE BATTERY
7. THATS IT
Did not work for me...so my research goes on.....I'm really PO's at my self for not following my own advice as in BACKING UP my files....I should get twenty lashed with a wet noodle (smile)!
I've responded to the help provided by dc3, chrisd87 and dicke want to thank you guys for your suggestions. I'm also thinking about "going in".....to take a look.
Please see below the responses posed to me.....

If you shine a flashlight on the screen, can you see the desktop?
Answer: The desktop is not visible when I flashed a light on the screen......

Also make sure the monitor hotkey didn't get pressed accidentally.
Answer: I booted up the system and pressed the monitor hotkey repeatedly, but alas, nothing.

Not to be a smart A but the answer is yes. Could be either. If you have a monitor you can plug into the laptop that might help eliminate one. Is there any HDD activity [blinking light] to indicate thae drive is active? If both are non-op then I'd look at the power supply
Keep us posted
I have another monitor to eliminate a display problem, but I loaned my cord to my mother and have to get it back. There is no HHD lights, but when I press the programmable, backup and volume button those light come on. As i mentioned earlier the power on and battery charge lights come on and I checked and saw that the CPU FAN running last night. I have not heard any clicking sound which would indicate a pending hard drive failure and consider myself quite "ANAL" about running check disks tests, defragging and keeping my av and malware programs up to date. I'm hoping the hard drive is not dead.
How would I go about checking for a power supply issue. I've build desktops and am quite comfortable going inside...just never taken apart a laptop. Looks like that would be my next step.
Thanks again and any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I wish you all peace, love and blessings....
