Acer Laptop will not boot?

dinkey
Acer Aspire 4520 Laptop, Was brought in for me to look at. Apparently someone got mad and threw it down. I plugged the power cord in and hit the power button the power light flashes for a second goes off and nothing else happens. No power, no boot. I've taken out the battery, the power cord, held down the button, same results. I've reseated the memory, I've taken the whole thing apart and with only the motherboard, memory, screen and the power cord still get the power button light blink once and everything goes off. Thinking there is damage to the motherboard itself. Took out the small battery on the motherboard also. Still no change. Any ideas?

    Took a heat gun to the video chip and waited a bit. Put everything back together and it worked. So there was an issue with the video chip.
