Do you hear the fan spinning when you first turn it on? Have you tried connecting it to an external monitor? It can be a bad screen and not the laptop thats bad.

Yes I do hear the fan come on but I only hear it for about 5 or 6 seconds then it stops. My keyboard lights are still on but nothing on the screen. Will this be a very expensive problem to fix?

Sounds like no post. You probably have a bad stick of ram. You can verify that by removing one and seeing if it post, if not swap them and try again. Also I have seen bad hard drives cause no post before, but if its not your ram then its probably a system board issue.
