Have you tried starting in safe mode just keep tapping F5 or F8 as the computer starts.

Having googled for the problem it does seam to be the only ones that managed to fix it was by installing a new motherboard.

There were other fixes but you had to be able to start the computer first.

Not sure if you get a graphics card on a laptop but maybe try without it if you can.

I know that you took the C-moss battery out and put it in again,just wondering if a new battery would have helped.

Having taken the battery out it may have changed the Bios settings and you can't get into the Bios to reset them.

So far I have seen no fixes for a laptop that will not start but lets hope someone can give you the help that you need.
