If the battery light is flashing when plugged in, that means it's charging. Have you removed the BIOS battery and left everything unpluged for 30mins? your bios might be corrupt. if you haven't then its worth a try

Well, ive had two laptops that has had similar problems - blank screen and all. Most of the time it comes down to a faulty motherboard. Try plugging it into a external monitor and see if anything comes up, If nothing happens - try disconnecting the laptop screen from the Motherboard; try again like that. Be sure to take the laptop battery out and power supply & hold on button for 30seconds to empty the caps.
