Why won’t my Dell XPSLaptop won’t power on?

I have a laptop that won’t power on. I changed the charger, and battery. I used different outlets. No indication lights come appear on the laptop.
It’s a 3 year old Dell XPS.
My little brother used this laptop a lot on his bed so I would assume that overheating can damage the MB or FAN but what exactly could be critical enough that can damage and cause the computer complete failure?
If you have some suggestions on what to do to fix it, let me know or share your knowledge on what you think must have went wrongThanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

the motherboard might have been fried. The problem with laptops as compared to PCs is that in PCs parts are interchangeable.  If you have access to a DELL service center or any authorized one, might be a good idea to give them a visit.

    If you have some suggestions on what to do to fix it...

    Take it to a qualified PC repair shop and have them check it out. There is no way to analyze the problem in an on-line forum.

    If you knew enough basics, it might be possible to answer specific questions that come to your mind while you troubleshoot. But we can't guide you through all possible power problems that might exist. It just isn't feasible.

    It can be difficult for us because this site isn't really intended to take work away from other IT professionals. It's intended for IT professionals to discuss problems with each other. (The site FAQ describes the site purpose.)

    I have to agree on the thoughts to take it to an Dell authorized repair shop or send it to one. I suspect that MB connector for the power supply is damaged, this means that MB will most likely have to be replaced. The other option and it is one that I have seen is that the power switch is bad, but both options to repair mean taking the the laptop apart.
