    I am assuming this is a motherboard issue, the leds come on for power and bluetooth, the cpu fan will still turn on when it hot. the hard drive led never comes on. the screen never shows anything. i have even tested the battery next to the memory to make sure it is holding a charge and it is.

    Sounds like your motherboard is "Dead."
    Another possibility is your screen inverter or backlight failed, but if your computer isn't "posting" at all then it is a motherboard issue (corrupt BIOS or worse case scenario physical damage to a critical mobo component).
