Inspiron 6000 No Post

I am not able to get any beeps or error codes after a spill on the keyboard. The system does not post.  It tries to start (green power light) then goes dead. Is it new motherboard time? Would bad keyboard do this? Holding FN key while holding power key does not give any error code.

A bad keyboard won't display those symptoms - though a bad mainboard will.

Re: Inspiron 6000 No Post

I replaced the motherboard and keyboard.  With everything removed, battery, hard drive, cd, memory, keyboard, modem, wireless card, etc. I do not get a post. The system tries to start with solid green lights ( no beep codes or blinking led codes) for about 15 seconds then shuts down.  What now?

Any help would be appreciated.
