HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-dk0068wm

Hello, I am unable to boot my laptop up.

The LED charge light is on (white). When I press the power button, it lights up (solid light, not blinking) for a couple seconds then turns off. No other lights or signs of life (No fans or beeps). The screen is completely black. The laptop model is 15-dk0068wm. I’ve had it about 3 years. 


I have tried turning on without the battery in. I have tried getting BIOS to boot with it downloaded onto a USB and holding down Win + B, but the USB ports don’t appear to be working (tried plugging in a USB charger and nothing happened). I have also removed and replaced the battery and memory. 


What are my next options? Thanks in advance.
