My MBA was working perfectly and now it won't turn on at all.

I went to boot up and it wasn't powering up. I plugged in the magnetic power cord and the little light on it isn't lighting up. Tried several outlets and nothing.

The laptop has enough charge where it should have booted.

Thoughts?

No. It won't even power up at all. It's like it suddenly died but I find it odd that power cord doesn't light.

I don't know how old MBA is and if it is still under Apple Care, but I would try to call Apple Tech Services. Sounds like it might be a power manager issue. But I must say, the fact that light on charging cord does not light is strange. Maybe bad connection in your power block also.

borrow another power charger.

try an SMC reset by the method relevant to your model MBA
