Try to listen to the hard drive. Does it seem spin at all? If not you most likely have a motherboard issue. Try to twist the laptop body. If it turns on when twisted, you have a loose GPU or north bridge and need to reflow your motherboard. there are Laptop repair guides onhow to do that yourself as well, if you are tech savy. I work for Laptop repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.
