How old is the PRAM battery? If you have never changed it since you bought the computer, be aware that they last from three to five years. A dead battery will prevent the computer from starting.
And if the battery is new then follow steps below and ur problem will be solved..
Reset PMU (Power Manager Unit).
1. Disconnect all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch any metal surface to ground yourself, disconnect the power cord, and open the computer.
3. Find the PMU reset button and push it. once only. It's a tiny, tiny button, probably unlabeled, located on the motherboard and probably near the battery.
4. Close the computer, reconnect everything, and give it a try.
If this doesn't work, replace the battery. BTW, if you have a power strip, that doesn't necessarily mean that it gives surge protection. Get a good surge protector/battery backup.
