Did you make any changes to the hardware on your laptop recently? Did you completely use up the battery on the laptop before it died? Do you hear any beeping or clicking sounds or see a light flash when you attempt to turn it on?

So the charger may have died or the power port may be broken. See if jiggling the cord does anything. I had a similar issue where the charger on my laptop died and I only had to buy a new one. But if it works after jiggling the power cord then there may be a problem with the power port on your laptop.

Were you able to boot properly and how long before it turns off? Have you tried directly connecting to your adapter while battery is removed?

While pressing the power button, are there any short lights(green,red)popping out from activity lights or completely none? Depending on the life-span or usage of your laptop, it could be dead. To further test it of course you will need to open up the laptop casing and try reseating the RAM, cable/connectors, network card and check for any bad or blown capacitor(s) and also the port connector for your adapter connecting the mobo. You could also reseat or replace the CMOS battery. If after reinserting did not make any changes, then its time to remove some components and see if it will boot up(don't worry about any beeps here). If you have two RAM module swap on either slot and see if it boots up. If nothing changes, remove all RAM and try pressing again power button. You could also remove the Network card to troubleshoot the boot up problem. The CPU Fan also will need to be replaced for testing and have your adapter tested for the correct input/output as labeled.
