Possible reasons why your laptop doesn't boot ( Power on with green light indicator lit)
-battery problem -memory problem -power failure -etc ( maybe one of the hardware that is connected inside your laptop)
1. First you need to try switching on your laptop without the battery Basically you will remove the battery of your laptop and connect the ac power then switch it on.
a. If your laptop boot up ( with a green light indicator ) the problem will be the battery. b. If the laptop does not boot up continue using step 2.
2. Unplug the power adapter , remove the battery and memory Watch this video and it will help you to remove the memory http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdDf46XKXiE&feature=related NOTE: Your not going to upgrade your memory!
After removing the memory put it back close the panel and put back the screw.
Now after putting the memory , Try to plug the ac adapter and press the power button and check if your laptop will boot ( No need to put back the battery because your laptop will power up with out the battery )
If your laptop will still have the same problem the best thing to do is to bring it on the nearest support center for Samsung laptop because there's a possibility the problem will be the hardware that is connected inside your laptop.
I want to provide you the complete information on how to open your laptop however since your just new with this and to avoid any damages the best thing that you can do is to bring it on laptop specialist if the troubleshooting steps that I provided will not work.

Try swapping the power button connection with the reset button connection. Then to turn on your computer you will need to press the reset button. If that works you have a faulty power button. Otherwise try using a different PSU. One that you know works. If that doesn't help the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.
Take the battery out and unplug the power cord. Press down the power button continuously for a solid 30 seconds without stopping. This drains all the power out of the circuits and resets whatever invalid state your computer is in.
Now, leave the battery out but plug in the AC and turn on the laptop. If it works, turn it off again and insert the battery. All should be well.
Try this... to see if your video card is bad...
Connect your laptop to an external monitor and press the Function key plus F5 on the laptop... if your OS shows up on the monitor screen, then you have a bad video card...
If its not the video, Bad Ram might be the cause.
And worst case.. Need Motherboard replaced...
