Question about ASUS P5KPL-AM SE Motherboard
I can't find your specific motherboard after a quick look on ASUSTeK's website, but the procedure is generally the same for resetting your motherboard's BIOS. There is a jumper on the motherboard, and it may be labeled BIOS or something similar.
The following I cannot verify without your specific motherboard model, and you may be doing so at your own risk. To reduce your risk, please make sure your computer is unplugged, and you have grounded yourself (i.e., basement floor, metal water faucet - don't get wet!, pipe, etc.).
There will be 3 pins, and the jumper should be across two of them. You will need to move this jumper to the other side of the 3 pins and start up your computer. After the computer powers up, you may or may not need to shut it down (and re-unplug everything) and move the jumper back to its original location. Your BIOS should now be reset.

you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the computer?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the computer and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).
Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button.
you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and
Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power
cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.
your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.
the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the
chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know
the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen.
If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try
rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the
other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to
verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open
memory chip slot and try booting.
your power supply is bad. Sometimes there is enough power to make the
power light or some other lights come on but not enough power to make the fan
turn on or hard drive spin.
