T20 wont turn on

\015 My t20 suddenly stopped functioning. the charge light comes on and the battery definitely works fine as I tested it on another laptop and tried replacing the battery with a backup. the power button does nothing when I press it. the only sign of function at all is the little battery charge light which goes on when I plug in the laptop.\015
