Jeff I recently had a similar problem. After removing battery and still no boot ,yes, tested the HD, in an enclosure it was fine too. I replaced the MOBO, but also found that the ribbon cable connectors MIGHT be the problem. If these tiny ribbons get wiggled at all , or loosened, the contact points might not adequately touch the tiny wires. On the first cable from the switch, , lift the cable end latch - it swings up a bit. Gently pull out the cable and with a SHARP pair of scissors cut off about a 32 or a 1/64 of an inch. Insert fully into the slot of the cable destination , and hold in while closing the latch. Then, DON'T TOUCH AT ALL .See if that works !
