It's anybody's guess what's wrong, both yours and ours. So it's anybody's guess what the repair costs would be also, both yours and ours.

Only a tech can tell after investigating.

There are thousands of The Dead PC (google that!)

There are thousands of discussions about The Dead PC and repair costs vary greatly. Here, where I live the problem is that repair can exceed the PC's value. So folk in those cases just replace it.

With under 200 buck refurb laptops (groupon and newegg.com) I have to agree with Kees about repair costs since there's no mention of make or model and what parts you suspect.
