Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGC-JS160J/S Notebook ?

My sony VGC JS160J was in sleep mode, powered it up. Saw the background, but it was greyed out, saw the mail box coming up(smaller box) could see it. Then no power. Won't power up, unplugged it. Nothing no lights or sound. This is maybe a year 1/2 old. Can the interal power supply be fixed? the power supply shows a green light. Thanks
