Try powering on laptop what happens do you hear any beeps or see any lights normally if u see lights this is a sign that it is working if not your motherboard could be bad if you see lights and hear constant short beeps this means your memory can be bad, Try powering on laptop without battery and only power supply plugged in.
Depending if the computer will turn on correctly or not, it sounds like this could be either simple or a big job. To make it easy: If the computer turns on fine, works fine, just beeps while shut down and charging, there's a fault in the charger.

1: Try removing 1 chip of memory (1 of the panels on the bottom laptop) than starting it, than reversing the procedure.
2: If still no luck, the motherboard needs replacement which if under warranty is covered.
