    Are they under any kind of warranty? I reckon they are proper dead.

    If you are not under any kind of warranty, it might be worth taking the MB out, removing anything plastic from it so you just have a bare board and trying the old 'bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees' trick. If I understand your situation correctly, you have nothing to lose!

    then quite frankly, call the WEEE guys, call a therapist and try to forget you ever owned them.
