Try this :)

Remove the power cord
Remove the main battery
Hold the ON button in for 30 secs
Plug in the power cord (only)
Turn on

If it worked, shutdown normally and refit the battery.
You're good to go :)

Remove all power again
Then also remove the Hard Drive
Remove all Ram cards, and blow out any dust
Refit one Ram card
Plug in power lead (Hard Drive still out)
Turn on

No?

If not then you could be looking at dismantling the laptop
Removing internal dust and checking internal connections
