Laptop won't post

Laptop is about 2 years old, specs below
8 gigs ram
64gb ssd (boot/os disk)
Ati mobility radeon hd 5870
Basically, I woke up to turn it on earlier today and its not posting
It turns on, I can hear the fans turn on but there is nothin on my screen or hard drive activity.
I have done the following troubleshooting steps:
1. Reseat memory
2. Reseat both drives
3. Replace the CMOS battery
4. Remove 1 stick of memory try to boot then try the other stick
I have tried all the above steps seperately as well as combined them.
Is there anything else that can be done? The only thin I can think of is my board being friend (which I hope is not the case).
Last night before powering down my laptop, I felt some static electricity leave my hand and go into the USB slot. I know that static can fry components when working on your laptop from the inside but is it possible to fry the components while just holding your laptop?
Thanks for reading
