On Sunday my laptop went dead, it won't turn on or charge anymore. Do I have a bad motherboard that needs to be replaced?
 
Well turning on the light doesn't mean it is working correctly. It may well not be putting out enough power to start up or run the device. I would suggest you try a different cord on your device, perhaps borrow one, and try your cord on another device.
 
Well you could, but it would be simpler to start with the following...

Try the following and see if it will turn on.

1. First make sure the device has been charged.
2. Unplug your charger cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds and see if the device will turn on.
5. If it does, great, now plug back in the power/charger cord. (If it didn't turn on without the cord in, it should turn on once you it is in. Yes sometimes they will turn on, or try to turn on, even with nothing attached/plugged in.)
6. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.

I'm pretty sure it's not the battery because I did all of the above multiple times now and still nothing won't work. Even when I plug in the charger with no battery it still doesn't work. I don't know what's going on,
