Toshiba A205-S4777 Laptop ON but no activity

\015 This Laptop powers-up, lights show ON, Wall Plug, Battery Charging. No Hard Drive activity, No video on LCD, No video signal to CRT. When I press the ON button the running lights go on, the HD LED flashes once the off, the DVDRW light flashes once, then off; the system cooling fan runs continuously. There are no beep signals and no sound. There is no other response from the laptop. I get no splash screen, no BIOS, NOTHING. The battery takes a full charge.\015\012\015\012I reset the RAM, removed the Battery, removed the HD.--- Still no screen. I put a bootable CD in the DVD drive and started the laptop--- it made an attempt to read the disk then stopped spinning.\015\012\015\012Its easy to say that the motherboard is bad or that there is a problem with the video chip. A novice Tech will tell me to replace the motherboard.\015\012\015\012Can you give me any insite into solving my problem?\015\012\015\012Walter\015
