For a start it sounds as though the fan controller is faulty.

The screen fault may simply be that the hibernate switch is stuck - check that before you do anything else. It's the little button that operates when the screen is closed. Sometimes they stick in the closed position.

Otherwise a faulty screen inverter or backlight may be the answer. Have you tried connecting the machine to an external monitor, to see if you get a display on that?

No Idea how old the Laptop but try it just on Mains Adapter, Without battery plugged in. But it sounds like you have damaged the motherboard Volts in Socket or board connections
