does it work with the MagSafe adapter connected? With the battery removed?
You can also take it to the genius bar for a diagnostic. They will give you a price for repair based on what they believe the damage it...

No, it does not work with the plug in. I haven't tried it with the battery out though. This not turning on started a while ago though, not recently.
I'm looking for a cheap fix (DIY...), I could take it in for them to figure out what's wrong but the closest store is an hour away and my macbook is an hour away in another direction with a Mac-knowledgeable family memember. So, taking it in will only happen if it isn't obvious as to what is wrong with it.

hard drive swap on that unit is very simple and quick. literally 10 minutes. check out iFixit.com for directions, advice, and parts...
