Exclamation Dead Mobo or CPU advice

Just bought a new power on board for a hp g6 laptop as i thought this was the problem however it turns out that this has not fixed the issue.

The laptop simply wont power on. I plug it in and the charging light comes on but i hit the power button and nothing happens.

No obviously im looking at two components, the CPU (45) on ebay or a new board (135) from the states.

How can i tell which one is at fault here. I dont want to order a new board only for that not to work and i dont want to order a cpu and for that not to work.

Will a laptop even power on if the CPU is dead ? i know cpu's dont die often.

Just to clarify when i say not turning on i mean it does not even light up and the fans do not spin.
