Question HP Pavilion DV5000 wont boot ???

Hi Everyone,
I have a very annoying problem with my HP Pavilion DV5000 laptop, When I press the power button to turn it on, all the lights come on, HDD light flashes for about 3 seconds, and the LCD backlight comes on for a couple of seconds then nothing, no text on screen or anything, it will stay like this until I pull out the power lead, I cannot turn it off with the power button. I have tried a few things with no luck:

Removed battery, and power supply and held power button for 60 secs to reset

replaced RAM

removed Bios battery and replaced

I had this happen one time before also, all I had to do to fix it then was remove the RAM and put it back in, However this time that didn't fix it, nor did new RAM. It has come to this state after playing games for a few hours, it shut down no worries then wouldn't turn back on. It is unfortunately out of warranty. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Andrew.

It's probably integrated onto the motherboard, but some laptops have a dedicated card.

I did some research and it sounds like the the gaphics is integrated like trey said. The only thing u could probably do is find a replacement motherboard off ebay.
