    Pull the laptops battery out and see if it once again powers on using the AC supply. If it does, replace the battery

    How about when running on battery only? Same thing? Then time for servicing the laptop...

    Maybe the screen isn't reserving a video signal, thus no display?

    When you moved it it one of the cables could have gotten unplug or it got dropped and the screen is malfunctioning.
