When I turn it on the 3 blue leds turn and and the alien on the back of the screen turns blue as normal. The cd drive makes a noise and I can open it by just clicking the open button. But that's all it does.I'm sure you could probably buy a new motherboard, power supply, etc, but for the money you would have to spend on that you could buy a brand new laptop. What exactly are the symptoms? I've found fixes for a few laptops by googling the model with the symptoms. If it don't work now, taking it apart couldn't hurt.
