Hi, so it's a real computer?
If so, check the NVRAM/PRAM stuff.
Also make sure the battery is fine.
Some Macs won't run with a dead battery (no signs of life, no error mrssage).
And if a new battery is installed, they need a a reset of the aforementioned RAMs.

Oh. Did you try re-seating the chips already ?
Sometimes, the connection between sockets and chips got bad due to corrosion etc.

The normal DIL/DIP sockets are usually easy to work with.
PLC/PLCC/PGA and so on require lots of care or special tools.
Pulling chips from these sockets with a screwdriver will often destroy the sockets or pins.
