Dell Latitude D531 does not start

\015 Laptop shut down all of a sudden when working with it.\015\012\015\012power to wall ok, battery ok, green light to indicate power is ok (wall charger) and also on Laptop. Removed memory and HDD, still not starting -> with either wall charger or battery. \015\012Tested display pressing Start button and holding "D" and display works fine (colours are displayed). \015\012Pressed Start button while holding the FN button -> the "Shift" and "Caps lock" signs are flashing, but the third light (the utmost right one -looks like a suitcase icon with a south facing arrow in the middle) is lighted up perm (no flashing). \015\012Seems to be kind of error code, but no one can tell me what it means...\015\012\015\012Also no beeps at all (from Bios for instance).\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015\012PS: Laptop is out of warranty already, also checked all Dell trouble shooting hints without positive result.\015\012\015\012Many thx in advance....\015
