Black screen on boot up

hello,
When i try to turn on my laptop i get a black screen, i dont see the windows logo or anything its just black as if it wasn't turned on, cant even get into safe mode. Using Emachines E630 win 7 home prem 64bit.
Before this happened i closed the laptop (not turned it off) for a hour or two when i opened it the blue light next to the power button came on but the screen was black, i tryed opening and closing it which didn't work so i turned it off.

What happens if you turn it on ... do you see the BIOS screen? Do you have a black screen with or without cursor (most likely on top left position of screen)?

Is it just a display problem?
Do you know where the disk light is and is it flashing for about 30 seconds after you power on?
