Answers :

You mean you don't get any lights? Any whirring noise at all? Any fan noise?

Laptops burn out easily, especially if you haven't ensured that the bottom is unblocked when using them so they don't heat up. You can also buy laptop coolers.

Could be that your motherboard is fried or your power adapter is shot.
