Does the green light on the charger turn orange when you plug it in? Because it might have been that you didn't actually charge it. The metal ring around the charger tip sometimes gets bent so that it doesn't make good contact. If you aren't getting a constant green or orange light when you plug it in, you might not be charging it at all.

That would be the easy fix. The real problem is probably much greater, because you probably know how to charge your laptop. The laptop doesn't need a battery to run, so if it doesn't start up while plugged in, you have an additional problem.

write back if you find that the simple things didn't work and you need more help figuring out a specific fix.

What to do when your mac doesn't boot

If your Mac does not boot, or is stuck while booting, performing these steps will help you to solve the problem:

First, disconnect all peripherals (printers, cameras, etc...)To make sure your system files are OK, boot the mac holding the shift key to repair disk and to deactivate extensions. If it boots, it will ask for your password. Type your password, if you are able to see the desktop, then your problem can come from a third-party extension. Back-up all your files (mostly located in the home folder) and reinstall your system.
Secondly, if the solution above does not workYou can start to think about a hardware problem. Most of the time, a Mac does not boot because of a dead hard drive. But it can also be a faulty motherboard or RAM. I recommend to test all of these, using your hardware test, following these steps: .
At last, If you can't eve test your hardware, think about a dead power supply or a dead motherboard/

Unscrew the screws on the back and remove the back cover. Place the laptop under a desk lamp. Make sure it's not getting too hot, but let it sit for a few hours. This will help evaporate the moisture.

This happens, and unless your startup disk is locked up and needs some swap space, it's just a matter of a screen whose time has come.
