My ES1=311 Laptop is Not Turning On

When I push the power button the Green light turns on and then I hear a little "Hissh" sound, then the computer turns off in a second. After a few seconds same thing happens. As if, the laptop is trying to turn on, but for some reason, it can't. It tries on and on but nothing happens.

The first time it occured, the laptop usually turned on after 1-2 hours of this continuous struggle, but now, it's not turning on at all.


Things I did so far -

1. Took out the battery, left it without battery and un-plugged for 10-12 minutes.

2. Took out the battery and plug, and pushed the power button for 30 seconds to upto 10 minutes various times, tried to start with both "without battery+plugged-in" and "with battery+un-plugged".

3. Pushed the Battery Re-set button on the back for 4 seconds.


Things I didn't do yet -

1. Pulling out the RAM stick

2. Flashing the bios


Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
