Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component: 1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop. 2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop. 3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop. 4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop. etc.... Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard. By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.
Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.
There are a few things that can cause this. Start by removing the battery and starting on AC only. Then remove the memory and try each chip separately. If these aren't the problem, then I'm afraid the power management system or another component on the motherboard may have failed. You will need to take it in for a professional diagnostics.
