Remove the main battery and power up, if no change! have the power supply tested, if okay! sub out the ram memory one at a time and test, if no! the DC jack in the laptop do cause issues, at this level I recommend a tecnnician to get to the bottom of this.
Can you tell if your AC power cord is working? (Is there a light on the computer that comes on when it's charging?) If the power pack went dead, your battery could've died and now you get no power to the PC which is why it won't boot up.
To test, take out the battery and plug the AC cord in and try to boot up. If nothing at all happens without the battery, then your power cord or power pack is dead, and you just need to replace it.
This could be 1 of 2 problems, or both. The power adapter may need replacing and/or the battery will need to be replaced. If you use the battery a lot you may have reached the 300 recharge cycle limit. New components can be spendy if they are not still under warrenty. Call your Tech support to see what they have to say. If the warrenty is expired you might consider purchasing the replacement on ebay. Otherwise, do some comparison shopping.
