MacBook won't switch on after swollen battery


Hi, I have an old (mid-2008) white macbook that has been going strong until now.

I noticed that the battery had swollen so removed it and tried to boot up just with the power cable but nothing happened. I ordered a replacement battery and it is charging fine but the macbook still won't boot.

It turns on briefly,  I here some whirring inside, what sounds like the cd drive making a noise and the white led comes on for a few seconds, then a click and off it goes.

I've tried numerous reset options...holding cmd, option, P, R etc. and power button 30 secs but still nothing.

Is there anything else I can try or is it fried as I suspect?
