Try connecting to an external monitor - that will indicate if the problem is VCG(VPU) / logic board or in the display components.

AFAIK if you have a working power supply the computer should start... unless the swollen battery did other internal damage.

If the battery is an Apple part it may be replaced free of charge.

What does the light in front do? Is it solid when you turn it on? Is it pulsing slowly like it would be in sleep mode? That little light is actually an indicator for us techs.

If its a solid light see here:

standby light glowing but not starting up

See my link on the first comment. If you start up your computer and you hear the disk drive spin up for a second and nothing comes on the screen and the light stays solid most likely we are talking about a a dead logic board. 9 out of 10 times this issue comes to my bench it's dead logic board.

That being said if you have not had your logic board already replaced because of a bad GPU you may be able to get apple to replace it because of a large repair recall they did in the Past. It is dependent on your serial number but it may, if you are lucky, get you a free repair.
