Laptop Power Porblem and it won't turn on

Hi i have a Gateway 450ROG laptop, i can't get any help from gateway (they and there support went bankrupt), and i am having some issues. First off my laptop won't turn on all of a sudden everything looks good no burnt things any where, but no matter what all it does is sit there no lights sounds, well sounds yes. The battery in it is dead, i have a new one on the way, but when i plug it in to the power cable i heard a humming sound around the CPU, so undid everythig and it wasn't the CPU but was definetly coming from the powerboard, the wierd part is when its plugged in the Orange charging light comes on like normal if the dead battery is in. Do you think the Powerboard is causing all of these problems, its humming quit loud and changes frequencies every once in a while, i tried removing the CMOS battery but that didn't help, would it be worth buying a new Power board they are like $40, but a new mobo is like $200, thanks in advance and any help would be apreciated.
PS if you need any more details just ask
