Laptop Not Turning on or Booting up

Compaq Presario F700 laptop not turning on or booting up. No lights, no sound, no luxuries. Thinking it was the power adapter, purchased repllacement. Removed HD, Removed RAM on stick at a time. Held down power button for 30 seconds after removing all power sources. Checked Google only to find out that this a common problem with this model of laptop. I apologize for not having any other specs for this model of laptop as It will not turn on. This is one of my clients laptop and would like to get it going. Have a feeling it is a MOB issue or graphics card. Does any one have any further suggestions. Thanks Curtis

Remove Batteries

I think you should remove the battery for a few seconds including the mobo battery and reinsert afterwards to reset settings.
