Check the memory and the power adapter ... if it's not one of those, it's dead.   Probably not worthwhile to replace the motherboard unless you're handy and can DIY

Hi,

Shut down the laptop and disconnect the AC adapter. Remove the battery and press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. Release the button Do not insert the battery back.Now plug the adaptor back and turn on the computer. check it and let me know.

if you have 2 ram sticks, remove 1 and test with each separately

you can also remove the disk, and cd drive for testing
