try jiggling the power socket around a bit, where it meets you laptop. Maybe it's just a loose connection (why it's not lighting up and delivering power) and your battery is probably dead (push on the small button on the battery and see if any of the leds light up) therefore nothing for start up. You might want to contact apple about this, as if it's only a couple of weeks old, it's not really something that you should have to be worrying about (ie get it replaced).

I'd be calling apple for a replacement. Maybe someone else here will know of a few potential fixes, or what the problem actually is, I would guess a logic/mother board problem but what do I know. *******. Hopefully the repair/replacement is easy and not painful (time or $)
