Apple only makes parts for 5 years for these computers. After 5 years, they no longer support the hardware. You're going to have to look for known good used parts to fix this up.

It wouldn't be the hard drive, it would still start up if the hard drive was bad (You would see a blue screen with a folder in the center) but it might be the display, or just a dislodged cable, try buying a $10 mini-VGA to VGA adaptor, and conneting it to a monitor before replacing any parts.
