No video at any point, just black screen.
Test with an external monitor is the same.

POST beeps indicate that the BIOS can not initilalize the video.

With a PC at this point i would try reseating the video card, swapping video cards if that failed. Well this is a laptop so i should not be able to set the jumpers to disable the on onboard video for an add on being as there isn't even a slot, so what is the next step?
I have no clue. To the shop? sorry I could not be moor of a help. maybe someone else might.
Yup, your right Bluey. It's the shop.
Turned out the on board video was fried. Needs a new motherboard and being a lap top you can't throw in an off the shelf one.
