My System Specs

Default broken laptop. trying to pinpoint issue

So i got a laptop off eaby for too good to be true price. got it mailed opened it up didn't work, The sellers ebay acc is suspended and paypal gone so i cant even dispute, its been over 2 months now, tried a few routes still working on getting my money back form the dipshit. so now i just swallowed my grapes and get on to maybe salvage or repair it.

here are the issues at hand

1. battery and wall adpater plugged in. turns on for a second then shuts off briefly showing the acer logo

2. just battery does same as above

3. without battery and but with wall adapter plugged in NOTHING. no lights no logo no fan.

this sounds like a dead motherboard to me. but what do you guys think maybe a long shot quick fix.

Im getting ready to order a new motherboard for it for about 180$ so any suggestions would be great.

acer aspire 5315

any help at all is great.
