Based on the specs for that laptop it has a Mobility Radeon HD 3200. The cause of not having anything displayed on the screen would be:
1. Malfunctioning graphic chip
2. corrupt video driver
3. the display itself is not longer function properly

connect it to a monitor and with the keyboard and a f key try swapping over to ext video port. if there no video or boot screen then you have a power or mb issue.
