Well if the BIOS isn't coming up on the screen when booting it up it sounds like the screen or video card may have gone out. I would recommend trying to hook up a second monitor up to the HDMI or VGA port and see if you can get in that way and recover any files you need.

Unless anyone else has any suggestions I would have to say the laptop is dead.

Pretty good evidence the graphics output is dead when internal AND external video output fail. Nice diagnostic job BTW.
HumanPower is correct, repair is prohibitively expensive (likely MB replacement since that is where the graphics chip 780M is soldered (northbridge)) for a six year old end of life notebook. Pull the drive to recover data. 2.5" 160GB/250GB/320GB SATA

A reflow on the MB is not a bad last try---it's free for what is about to become junk so what the heck.
