We need to determine your problem first.

Point a flashlight at the screen and see if you can just barely distinguish what was supposed to be displayed.

Connect your laptop to any sort of external display, tell us if anything is shown.

Bryan Chen remove your AC adapter, the battery and the memory modules. Hold the power button for about 15-30sec. Then reapply the AC adapter only. Try to turn it on. If it does start replace the parts one after the other, not all at once. See if there is an issue with restarting with a particular part. This behavior could be caused by a bad memory module.
