    what I would do is remove the battery, mains power too, remove the ssd, Then hold the power button down in an attempt to discharge everything.

    I would then not put the battery back, but use mains.

    I'd probably not in the first instance put the ssd back and then switch it on and wait. If it works and becomes responsive to the keyboard would then put the ssd back in

    Think something else is clicking?
    Have you done this? Please note with no ssd, it may take longer to start up due to it timing out, think the time to wait will be under 5 mins.

    To be honest i am asking myself was the laptop switched on when the battery dropped out? was the laptop running off battery at that time? Did the battery on losing connection spark and either fry or corrupt something?

    if you had a keyboard an a screen, possibly putting it on could be beneficial as the screen should hopefully not be pink, and the external keyboard may work.?

    since there is no model number, and looking through your old posts, is this a samsung chromebook, or a real laptop?

    I already told you what to do. Taking it to a shop is likely to be a waste of money.
