Try to power on the computer with no battery inside.

If still no luck, then the battery adapter must be tested by reading voltages on the connector. This is done using a multimeter.

If the AC adapter is fine, and the laptop has no power at all , then it is usually a broken solder contact on AC socket on laptop.

All this can be tested at any local repair shop.

    If this is a desktop and there is no power at all , then it is a faulty power supply unit.

    Start unplugging the desktop from power outlet for one hour, this will allow the capacitors on power supply full discharge.

    If that does not work, then the PSU unit must be replaced.
