Laptop Turning On But Nothing Happens - Replaced...
I thought I would let you know that I posted a response to your solution...I didn't think you would know otherwise. In short, I don't think your solution solves the problem because I did switch out the memory chips individually.

If you tried turning the laptop on with NO battery but plugged into the mains and you get no response, even no little lights flickering then its possible that something to do with the motherboard (obviously, you might think) but get someone too look inside it if you can, something might be fried. its a bit hard not actually seeing the machine
It seems you're having issues with the internal video card or motherboard.If you're not able to boot to bios it means your laptop didn't pass the POST (Power On Self Test). tried running the dell diagnostics.
here are the steps:
1. turn off the laptop.
2. while the laptop is off, press and hold down the FN key then press the power button. The dell diagnostics should come up. If nothing happens, you should call Dell to check more options.
This sounds like it may be a Power controller problem, (circuit that controls battery charging etc...) To fix this the mainboard usually needs to be replaced, which will mean that you will have to send it to SONY to be "serviced".
I'm very compulsive with my electronics, especially if they are new. I, myself, would have it sent in and I would complain why I spent X ammount of money on a doorstop, you know. If you don't have a warranty you can take to BestBuy for free inspection and what you might be able to physically do to fix it.
