I have an acer ferrari 3200 which won't boot up. The person who I brought it from removed the battery with the laptop powered up. I have tried removing the battery, holding down power on for 10-15 seconds and powering up but it still won't.

I have removed the RAM and get no beep codes. I have removed the HD and DVD drive and still no noise.

The machine powers up to a point as the DVD drive works, the LEDs come on and the fans start up. The power LED flashes amber green constantly but I cannot find what these codes mean on the web.

I suspect its a mainboard failure due to a short circuit but any suggestions to help narrow it down would be most welcome.
