HP Pavillion dV6000 will not boot up

I am working on a HP Pavillion dV6000 with XP Multimedia Entertainment on it.  When I press the power button nothing happens. I know it is receiving power as the power lcd lights up.  I know there is probably a problem with the button itself because if I press the Quick start button next to the power button, all the lights for the features on the DVD player light up for a split second. I have swapped out memory, I have reset the CMOS battery, I haver removed the DVD player, i have removed the power plate and keyboard to reseat all the ribbons.  Just want to make sure I covered everything.

You can try one more thing.

Remove the Battery, Power Adapter and any connected devices (like mouse...). Now hold the power button for 45 seconds. Release it. Now connect the Power adapter and try to power it on. If no luck, then it has to be taken to the doctor (HP Service Center).

Check to see if it's (still) covered under the extended warranty. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Those laptops overheat and damage the BGA solder joints under the Nvidia GPU.  HP extended the warranties by 2 years because of the design flaw.
