I got up yesterday and my laptop wouldn't start up. I usually just leave it plugged in with the battery removed, but I had forgotten that and left the battery in for a few days.

Anyway it wouldn't even give me a power light, I removed the battery and all the lights come on and the hdd starts to spin up, but then just quits.

What are my options?

Leave the battery out, disconnect the power adapter, then press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds.  Plug the power adapter back in and see if it starts.

Deep discharge did not work. Is there anything else or should I just start checking to see if it's dead?

If you have a voltmeter, set it to the DC scale and read the output of the power adapter.  The proper voltage will be listed on the adapter.

After the deep discharge I left it plugged in for about 30 minutes, when I went back I touched the keyboard and almost burned my hand. It was about 2 minutes from catching on fire. I got a feeling it's now a paperweight.

That's way too hot.  If the motherboard and PCU got this hot it probably is toast.
