Geez...rather listless inquiry, but, what is the make, model, age of laptop? Any beep codes, light codes/patterns. Is there anything on the LCD screen when you try to turn it on? Is it POSTING; is there any error messages on the screen? Is the fan turning when you try to power it on? Does it work on battery?

Cleaning motherboards? To do that you'll need to get directions/diagrams from the manufacturers website, then you have to pull the top panels off, the keyboard, the LCD, pull the top panel of the laptop off to get at the motherboard, then remove it from the case.

Cleaning - compressed air, pull heat sink, clean old heat sink compound from heat sink & cpu, inspect MOBO for damage, black marks (electrical burns), broken circuity, broken connectors, bad/broken cables etc etc etc....

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
