Take out the RAM, clean, put back in. Check the CMOS battery. Try to boot into BIOS. Repair power jack. If no luck then replace MB.
See, if I had mis diagnosed the issue then yes, I wouldn't have charged her, but she didn't give me all the info I asked for in the beginning. If she had told me it wasn't working before hand then I would have just passed on the job completely because repairing a power jack is useless if the board is bad.
