I had my dad's laptop on hibernate after I left it, and when I came back to it, it wouldn't wake up. I force shut it down and tried rebooting. Now there is no response whatsoever. Power goes to the laptop, but nothin shows on the screen. Thinking it as a dead screen, I plugged it into a working monitor but the monitor claimed there was no input, leading me to think the mobo died for some reason. Is there any possible fix? I can't even get to an OS, nothing shows from the moment I turn it on to the moment I shut it down. Claiming on the warranty isn't an option, since the laptop was bought second hand from Ebay.
Any help, if possible, would be much appreciated. Thanks.

'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
