HP laptop turns on but no screen is BLACK

Specs: Windows 7
I have a 4-5yr old dv 6500 HP laptop. I recently had 2month old battery crap out on me (don't know if this is related to the problem). However, soon after my battery crapped out i started having problems with my laptop screen. First it would go out/black if I wasn't using it. (during this time the laptop is being powered thru the outlet). Next, i start seeing lines on the screen in addition to the black screen problem. By lines I mean the screen would get distorted and soon the lines would turn into a colored blur. I definitely thought this was a screen problem where it may have crapped out. But i would re-boot and power back on..and the screen would come on..only to succumb to the lines and blackouts 10-30minutes later. this problem with the lines and black screen went on for a week and a half. Now the screen remains black and will never come on..all while the computer is on and I can even hear the computer reaching the sign on windows screen (where I enter in my password). I connected my laptop to my tv and it would give me an image on the tv..but once my laptop went to black screen..so did the image on the tv. Fom this, I am pretty confident it is not a problem with my screen but something else.
Some of these problems may lie with the graphics card or RAM? Am I right in saying this? If yes/no how do I go about repairing it inexpensively?

I can try to disassemble the laptop but only if I have accurate instructions in front of me. So you think its a graphics problem?

You might see the presence of random lines all over the screen in some occasions in your sony Laptop. Often, troubles are created due to this. You would see the vertical and horizontal lines. You could solve this problem easily with the help of LCD BIST test. For this you would have to press the function key and follow the instruction as the LCD BIST runs several colored screen.
