If you can't come to any other conclusion than the logic board, check out the links below. I have a macbook pro 15" that displays the characteristics they talk about. You can hear it start for about 2 seconds, than it shuts down with no boot up. I am going to try this tomorrow. You basically bake the logic board to "soften up" the solder connections that may have broken loose. Be sure to pay attention to the part about the thermal paste.

Here is a blog with some good info:

There is also some good info on YouTube:

Visit ifixit.com for instructions on how to remove your logicboard.

Good Luck
