The power light comes on but other than that it doesn't do anything else, no bios no back light in the screen. The hard drive sounds like it is on. The cd drive still opens, but won't recognize any discs (sony recovery disc or anything, no difference just spins hard).
I have checked everything and nothing seems loose. I tried the 30-90 sec power flush (by holding the power button without a battery or ac/dc adapter plugged in). I get the same results with the adapter or with the battery. I am not sure what else to try at this point.
