      Hi, remove the battery and unplug the adapter, hold the power button for a minute, connect the adapter and try to boot. If you still have no sign of life from the laptop, try removing HD and Ram and then placing it back in and try to boot.
      If that doesnt help you need to have it repaired at a service center unless you can check the motherboard and you can try to fix it.
