Static is definitely one possibility.
Another possibility is that you unplugged a cable somewhere when you opened it up, maybe. Even though the green light(s) are coming on, the rest of the motherboard may not be getting power if the cable is unplugged.
I'm probably wrong, but just trying to help.

- Hi GeekU Freshman,
Apologies for delayed reply,
Not long after my initial posting..I had an unexpected family issue that I had to deal with..
I had another look at my Laptop to check if I could see any unplugged cables that you suggested...
I could not see anything unconnected....There was only one or two wires / connections in the area where I had
worked on when I cleaned the dust out of the Fan...and all were ok...
I suspect that it may be a static problem...but I am unsure how the machine would have been damaged
by it, if it was static that has caused my problem...I assume that it may have permanently damaged something
on maybe the motherboard that will need to be replaced..that may be quite an expence..
It costs about £60 in the UK to have a Laptop checked out with a basic repair..maybe more dependent upon
how bad it may be...
I may be able to buy another reasonable Laptop for just a bit more...that it may not be worth having it repaired.
Unless I can find say a student who may be at a College who can repair it cheaper or something like that...
Unless anyone else has any other suggestions.
