    When I tried to turn my MBP on 5 minutes ago it didn't. First the computer looked like it was going to turn on and then goes off. Now is dead... nothing happens when I click the power button..:mad:

    Start with the easy stuff.

    It is plugged in right?
    Have you tried removing the battery while unplugged for a couple of seconds and then putting it back in and then plugging it back in.

    After that, check out this article from apple about how to reset pram and nvram.

    What color is the light on the AC adapter's mag connector?

    Have you tried with and without the battery?

    Did you plug it in? Does the light glow amber indicating charging state?

    I plug it in and nothing. Yes, the light turns amber when I plug the power adapter in the MBP.

    1. Take the battery and try just running off of AC to see if the laptop will power on.
    2. AppleCare/Store

    I plugged the MBP when I got home and it turn on with the AC adapter plug in... If I try to turn it on with battery only it doesn't turn on... The battery status says not charging...

    I think the battery is damage... Don't know for sure.
