Question about Dell Inspiron 9300 Notebook

Power light comes on and goes off and machine is dead

When I push the Power button, the Power light comes on, then goes off a few seconds later! The charger is working fine (voltage test, also battery charging light on the laptop comes on when plugged in. I get the same results with the battery removed and just the charger connected - no fan, no HD spin up, no nothing, then the power light on the laptop goes out and stays out. I also tried removing the HD, memory, etc. but there was no change to the problem.
