A small hope:
Remove battery, unplug from wall power.
Press power button for approx. 30 seconds and attach the power supply.
Try to turn on without battery.

Hey Mornsgrans i have tried that, and the was no reaction. I have also taken the hard drive out (smelled a bit funny Maby it have been hot). If you put an cd/dvd into rom it spinds up, but it is all that happens. Can i test if the hdd is broken?

You can test the system without HDD f.ex with a bootable CD-ROM. The POST will take then a much longer time. But if the display still keeps black after turning on, there might be annother problem.
Please also check the USB-ports whether they have no damage or short.
Could you locate the source of the smell?
The Z61-series are similar to T60 (!!!) - so they also can get the typically T60-damages like flexing of the ATI-graphics chip (in your case ATI FireGL v5200).
