Aspire 5630 laptop will not boot

I have an Aspire 5630 laptop (3years old) that will not boot, this is what happens. Power comes on, fan starts 3~10 seconds then nothing, power lights stay on no disk activity no display. I have checked with an external display no change, I have removed the hard drive and recovered the data so the disk I think is OK. can anyone help.

Maybe try it without the battery.

1. remove battery and AC adapter from laptop
2. press power ON button for at least 30 secs.
3. release button and attach battery/AC adapter
4. power ON as normal
Try it, sometimes works. It could be a corrupt BIOS
