When you said you removed all 4 memory modules, do you mean you pulled them all out and then tried to turn it on? Because that's not going to help you at all.
Try each module once in each slot, and see if the machine starts with some combination. You don't necessarily need to do it like that, though. If module #1 doesn't work in slots #1 and #2, move on to module #2 in slots #2 and #3, etc. See if anything works.

For completeness, the hardware maintenance manual may be obtained here:
Below are snippets from the applicable pages in the pdf file, but I'd highly recommend having the full manual at hand, however possible, so that you can see better detail and any warnings.

I don't think that this is a memory failure, but it does sound like more of a storage drive issue.
Which SSD is your boot drive? This sounds more like an SSD failure than a memory failure. Can you remove the MSATA drive first and then try to power up. If no joy, then remove the SSD from the main bay and try again. I'm assuming that you do not have an eSata drive connected.
