Laptop doesn't power up

I know this has been asked many times already. I have a Packard Bell EasyNote TJ65-DT laptop. Everything was going fine, and then one day the laptop won't turn on. I tried resetting (30 sec rule) but no luck. The power adapter works just fine, with the LED indicator on it. The charging light (red) on the laptop comes on when plugged in as well.
However, the strange thing is that the switches (e.g. wi-fi, mute, volume, power saver, etc.) are working perfectly and reacts as if the laptop is OK. That tells me the battery is fine. Any idea on this?

Plug an external monitor onto it and try switching to it, 'FunctionKey+ExternalMonitorKey', and see if you get video...

Thanks for your reply marcellis22. Tried this. Didn't work. Even the fan doesn't work. The power LED indicator doesn't come on. Only the switches are working fine. I don't wanna think it's the mobo. :/

It doesn't sound good, pull the hard drive and save your data if it's important, power supply failure, motherboard failure, it's all the same... if you have no warranty it's time to move on...
