gateway nv50A no video and no post

December 31, 2011 at 21:15:01
Specs: Kubuntu x86_64, AMD Phenom II N950 / 4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz
My gateway NV50A stopped working after I left it on for 9 hours, came back and I noticed the screen was off and it wouldn't shutdown when I pressed the power button. I removed the battery and since then it does not go to post, there is no video either in the screen or external monitor. It turns on for a few seconds then it shuts down, sometimes it stays on until I press the power button. When it is on, only the power LED is lit, the HDD LED stays off. I tried switching the ram and even left it without ram just t see if I could get a beeping or something, but it does the same. I also tried draining the power as described here:

but I get the same results. I also removed the hard drive and dvd, same thing happened. The cpu does get some temperature when it is on, I don't know if it is dead :( Do you guys have any ideas?

Thanks.

Does the screen flash when you turn it on?
