If you really followed the power drain procedure to the letter, I can't see anything else because the fan is running, you are not getting any hardware, HD error messages. It looks to me as if it's booting. Even a virus would not give you a blackscreen.

You may try one last power drain procedure:

1. Remove the ram sticks (Clean with a soft lint free cloth while they are out)
2. Remove the power cord and battery
3. Hold the power button for 58 seconds
4. Replace everything.

Sorry again, for I know how frustrating it can be.

Holding the on button for 58sec didn't work for me. Any other suggestions?

After doing the power draining you did, you should have got a screen, if that fails, there two possibilities:

1. Your screen backlights or converter must be replaced.

2. You graphic card is fried.

Only a qualified hands-on technician can diagnose and repair.

Sorry about that
