Hello Ngazek. Welcome to the forum.

Have you tried removing the battery and trying to start the laptop with only the power supply?

Also try starting without some of the removable components.
  • If there are 2 sticks of RAM then just install one. Then the other one. Try one stick in each slot.
  • Remove the hard drive. Remove the DVD drive. Remove both.
You are basically trying to isolate what piece of hardware is failing and causing the system to not boot.
