My Sony Vaio GRX560 is not showing any sign of life. Three out of the 4
LED's remain lit solid. Both CPU and the system fan not turning. No
beep heard.I just replaced flat cable connects to power. It has one 256
MB RAM in slot A.
where should I start to look why its not powering up...??

The Sony Vaio GR[your letter here] series have a tendency for the solder
traces on the RAM modules to fracture.  These can sometimes be repaired.
Another characteristic failure is in the solder connections on the ATI
GPU.  This often cannot be repaired.

There is a poster on this site who can repair these failures. I do not
have his name, but with a little bit of research on the site, you'll be
able to identify him.
