Have you tried connecting an external monitor (most HP laptops have a VGA port on the side for this purpose).
Are you comfortable with opening the laptop case up?  Do you get any video after removing the HDD (it won't boot, I'm just looking to see if removing the hard drive lets you see anything on the screen)?

Other things to try:
- reseating the RAM
- removing the battery and power cord, then hold the power button down for 30 seconds (then reconnect everything and try to start it).
