  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Pentium T3200@2.0GHz (2cores) on an Asus X71Q

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel GM45 Express Chipset

  • Kernel: 4.x
When it died, do you know if there was any battery power left or noticed if it was charging?  If the module went poof first, the laptop could have run on battery until it was drained.

At the time when the laptop died, it was running on mains power only (battery previously removed).
64bit OS (32-bit on Samsung netbook) installed in Legacy mode on MBR-formatted SSDs (except pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M@2.4GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

Doh! So it could be either the motherboard, power module, or the fuse thingy mentionned here.
Maybe trying to remove the HDD, RAM, WiFi, and video card, if not already tried, to see if it lives before buying anything.
Start with the least expensive in any case. :-S

If there is no light ON when you try to start it with the power supply,  then see if the pin in the  power socket  is broken. I had that problem some time ago. Then you have to replace that power socket .If it the same thing with battery, then is something with motherboard maybe??

Yes, thanks arxontas - already checked this - it's seems to be the MOBO, or possibly the power module, or both ...
