    Try holding the power button for around 10 seconds then turn it back on. That has not happened with me before.

    A completely dead laptop is almost impossible to diagnose online we have nothing to work with it could be any one of a number of things but is most likely a dead logic board.

    Laptop is a year old never has heavy use out of it.. If it's the logic board that would suck :( everything was fine until I installed Sierra even installing it powered off and it never booted up like before

    Well if it's a software problem you can use another Mac to create a bootable USB drive with Sierra on it and try and boot from that.

    If you have any sense at all you have a back up made In Time machine or using carbon copy cloner before you do any major update that you can try and boot or restore from.

    As I said just saying my MacBook is unresponsive means nothing online. It could be hardware or software it could be major or minor it could be easy to fix or not, it's impossible to tell.

    There were reports when updating to El Capitan last year that sometimes that final piece of install took hours not the minutes quoted and sometime later the machine would just boot up fine as if nothing had happened you can hope or take it into Apple and get them to take a look.

    See here for last years thread describing a similar issue.

    I doubt Sierra ruined your computer, try and reboot from the back up.

    Computer malfunctions are known to happen. Stuff breaks. Take it in for diagnostics. With some luck, you might still have warranty.
