|"I do not have a recovery or Vista OS disc"|
Unfortunately it wouldn't be any use if you did have the discs. The laptop is not POSTing and a disc won't fix that. It's more likely to be a hardware fault, though I couldn't say which component it is.
If you know a reliable laptop repair shop in your neighbourhood, ask them to take a look at it. Or ask a friend who knows there way around a laptop's internals.
Component failure on a laptop usually means a new motherboard, and since that will cost a lot of money including fitting cost, if often makes more sense just to buy a new laptop.
