Answers :

One thing you can try is

remove the RAM and the Hard drive and the battery and any power source let it sit for 10 minutes or so for the capacitors to discharge the energy in their stores. I would probably get a can of compressed air thats made for computers and give it a good couple times over getting in those ports.

Sometimes if a laptop receives a power spike it will retain that extra energy or in turn it causes a glitch. I.E the computer refusing to power up. It could also be a failsafe. I have repaired countless laptops that seemed DOA but sometimes it happens.

Give it a try and let me know what happens
