Hello,
What is your macbook model ?
First, you need to check if your battery is still recognize by your macbook.
Is your Macbook show you the charging level ?

My first thought is your battery is dead.....

sounds like a battery problem! Tried to switch it on without the battery on to see if it works!

Yeah, sounds like the battery - If the battery icon has a cross through it and says "Not Charging" then the battery is probably dead.
