It sounds like a dead motherboard. You can however go through the computer and make sure all the connections are secure. Make sure the heatsink/fan is snugly connected to the processor too.
I'm not familiar with that type of laptop, but you'll have to get that specific model's motherboard to have it fit properly. Also, I don't know if it's common anymore, but I've seen laptops before that the processor is built into the motherboard. If so, that's going to make it cost more. If the laptop is a couple years old, unless you find a deal on ebay for the motherboard, you may be better off selling the parts, and buying a new laptop. Laptop LCD screens can sell for a decent amount.
