How old is the laptop?

I've known of a few laptops with faulty batteries that won't power up even on AC power.

are you sure the power cord is providing power? it's not uncommon for those to die out. Try taking a volt meter to it and see if it's outputting everything properly.

It has probably died out. This has happened to me many times. Try getting a new one, but DO NOT get a universal one.
