Had an old laptop that wouldn't work. I put it on ebay and it sold as is for the horrendous price of $3.86, but the winner didn't pay (I have a 12 hour rule on payment) so I cancelled the order. I randomly decided to plug it in just now.and randomness be damned, it's charging! :o I'll see if the charge holds and try to set up an OS on it.

Well, back to the drawing board. It turns on but nothing comes on the screen. Not even a BIOS.
CMOS Battery? When the battery is dead, it cannot keep the BIOS settings and may result in not booting up. Just a thought.
That could be it. I have a bunch of those in the house so I'll rip her apart again and see if that can be replaced.
