Answers :

Hate to tell you this, but it is your motherboard. Just replaced the motherboard in one last week for the same problem.  I recommend taking it to a local repair shop, but if you want to try to fix it yourself, let me know and I'll guide you as best as I can. 
Something could be wrong with your installed hardware (the ones that are user installable/replaceable anyway). Take a look at your ram, if you have two pieces, try taking one out, and/or swapping with the other one if it still doesn't help - (with only one installed again). Try taking the cd drive out, there should be a release latch or screw holding it in place on the bottom, which you have to move/screw out. And try taking out other stuff that you can do safely as well. (like wireless cards, etc etc)

Something might be shorting, and therefore not allowing the system to ever open up because of the circuit protection. You might have to take it apart and clean it, or get someone to check it out. Easiest way for you to try to diagnose it is to remove stuff, like I said above, and see if anything you can replace you self needs to get replaced or cleaned...I once heard of a laptop not starting since there was a piece of hair on a ram board that was shorting and not letting the system start up, like yours is.
