Remove the battery and run the computer off of the power adapter only. If that doesn't work then there is a serious hardware failure. If that is the case, if the computer is several years old as it looks to be, then it is probably not worth fixing.

Many thanks for the help. I tried that plus a couple of other ideas I picked up but no better! The screen stays blank. The fan runs and warm air can be felt after a few minutes as usual but that's all. The computer is now 7 years old and has been in regular use so I guess it doesn't owe me anything. I regularly backup everything so nothing important lost. Thanks again.

Sounds like the Video chip needs to be "Reflowed" This is an expensive procedure and probably not worth fixing it.
You can remove the HDD and you can attach it to your New/Used Laptop via a USB Adapter or put it into a USB Enclosure or Dock with a power adapter to recover your files and to use a as Backup drive. Then sell the computer on Ebay for what it is.

SATA to USB lead on it's way to me. I'll backup anything I haven't previously backed up. Shouldn't be very much because I'm a regular backer upper (if that's a real phrase). I had a look at eBay and I might get a few quid back for the computer. Thanks for your advice.
