Question Laptop turns on but displays nothing


Oct 31, 2016
Hello, my laptop suddenly just doesn't want to work suddenly after i changed the bios bootup order (since i have 2 drives). Laptop's light turns on, but the 'cylinder thing' light only turns on for a while then it goes off. Normally when it's running, i usually have both lights on. Note that i don't have any battery in my laptop.

I've tried swapping the RAM, booting up with only one RAM, and they don't seem to work, tho i'm still not sure about if i plugged them in solidly or not.
I've also tried swapping the HDD slots but that also does not work. I've tried the 'plug off the adapter and holding the power button for 30 seconds' and that does not seem to work too. I've tried letting the laptop stay for a while and the hard drive did get a bit warm, so that means it's working.

Plugging it on an external monitor would not work because once again, normally when i have it running, i'd have both the laptop light indicator on and the 'cylinder thing' light on.

Now i'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
