Hi,
Remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter. If you can not power on the laptop, your AC adapter has gone bad on you and will need to be replaced.

If it will turn on with the AC adapter, place the battery while the laptop is on. See if it registers the battery as charging in the task bar. If not, there may be something wrong with the battery or the components connecting to the battery within the laptop.
Also you can below steps to check:
1) take the battery out of your laptop and the laptop charger
2) plug your laptop charger in your laptop without the battery in it,
3) Try to turn it on the normal way:
If it turns on, then your battery has gone, (Its drained and run out of use like all batteries do)
if it stays off then its a charger problem
You would want to hope its a charger problem as they are cheap and easily replaceable
Hope i helped
I guess its a charger problem because its not turning on and the laptop automatically would use the charger as a main power supply if the battery doesn't work
and oh by the way
If the battery isn't in it, your laptop will act as a pc whereas if you plug the charger in it will work, but if you take it out while the laptop is on then it will go off instantly without a successful shutdown which could mean a loss of work
Regards,
Rahul

SOURCE: How to stop a compaq cq60 laptop from shutting off due to overheating?

Some tips:

  • Use a "laptop cooling pad",search on Amazon, you will find many of them
  • Use the laptop on hard surfaces, not a sofa or bed cover, etc.
  • Use compressed air to blow dust out of the fan area (I would do this when the laptop is turned off).
  • Check if the laptop is under warranty and have it serviced. Warranty can be from the manufacturer, the store where you bought it. You credit card may have doubled your warranty.
  • Install the "core temp" program to monitor your laptop's temperature, and alert you when it gets too high. Then you can learn when it is going to shut down.
  • You may be able to run the laptop in a lower power setting, which could reduce the amount of heat generated. This will be under "Power Options" in the Control Panel.
