Thinkpad T510 won't turn on.

Hello.  I purchased a used T510 a month ago, and I was using it with no problems.  All of a sudden, the laptop turned off and won't turn back on.  I tried a number of solutions such as a taking the power adapter and battery out and then hitting the power button 11 times with the 11th time being held down for 30 seconds.  However, I know there is power running through the laptop because the CD/DVD drive is able to eject.  Also, the battery light indicator at the back of the laptop constantly blinks after I hit power.

 

Please help me if possible.  I know this is a used laptop, and it is buyer beware.  However, I'm just hoping to get a solution from the people here.  Thank you in advance.

Remove all the RAM and try booting it. If it doesn't make a 1-3-3-1 beep, it's probably the motherboard.
