Default computer won't turn on

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron e1405. I was using it the other day and it just turned off while I was using it. I tried to turn it on and it would not turn on. When I hit the power button, nothing happens (no lights, no fan, no sound). When I plug-in the charger in to the electrical outlet, the green light on the charger turns on: when I plug the charger into the computer, the green light on the charger turns off.

Here's what I have tried: I removed the battery and the cmos/rtc battery. I held the power button down for 30 seconds and then waited for 5 minutes. I plugged the laptop in and tried to power up the laptop (with the batteries still removed). That didn't work; results are the same: nothing happens.

Does anyone have any thoughts about what I should do next?

before this happened, was the laptop overheating quite a lot?

I hadn't noticed it overheating recently. Although the video card was damaged about a year ago from overheating, I hadn't had an other problems recently.

Sounds like Motherboard failure.
