acer aspire 5536 black screen

HI My Acer 5536 has black screen

I updated from windows 7 to windows 10 hit restart everything looked like it was working ok

I turned it off and didn't go back to it for a few weeks.

came to use it today it will not boot. just black screen. i can hear the fan running

i tried

1 remove battery/power hold start button (tried 3 times 30 seconds/1 min/2min)..no luck

2 hold light to screen to see if i can see faint image...can't see anything

3 hold f8 on start up..no difference

4 vga port to external screen..no sigh of life

5 downloaded bios from acer put on flash drive hold fn/esc press start..again no sigh of life
