Hello,

Your motherboard might be fried. Might be caused by over heating, is your laptop placed on a flat surface? Remove the battery, see if you can power it up.

While the battery is out? Also should I have it plugged in while I try to turn it on?

Yes, try to power up the laptop while the battery is taken out. Plug in the AC cable, as the laptop needs power to be turned on.

No prob. The battery is probably spoiled now. Let me know if you have any more problems.
