Computer will not turn on; no lights, no sounds, nothing.

Computer: Toshiba Satellite L300D laptop
A friend told me her computer was suffering from the My Security Shield virus, so I offered to fix it for her. Getting rid of that virus isn't terribly hard.
I was in safe mode running Malwarebytes, about 20 minutes into a full scan the computer just shut off. Not able to get anything out of it when I press or hold the power button. The laptop was quite hot when I checked, so I let it cool down and tried again, but no luck.
I took the battery out and left the power cable out and tried to boot, just put the battery in and tried, and just the power cable. No luck with any. I also took out the ram and re-arranged it, trying just one stick instead of two. No luck. I have left it with the battery out and will try again tomorrow, but thought I would ask here in the meantime about what I can try!
A lot of the links on Google I looked up stated that lights would flash and the hard drive would make noises, but the one I have with me does neither. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
