Default Sony notebook PCG-FX300

The notebook will not turn on at all. I have the power cord in and when I push the power button nothing happens at all. No lights flicker at all.
Could use a little help getting started here.
I have thought it might be the power supply but don't want to spend the $$$$'s if it is not necessary.
It was working fine and then all of the sudden poof it stopped.
Thanks for any and all help
Joe

If the battery doesnt work, it's messed.

So if the battery is basically dead the laptop won't come on even though it is plugged in?
Also will the laptop turn on with just the power cord attached and no battery?

It should work straight from the mains without the battery inserted, try it & see.

I tried it as you said and it still did not come on. I measured the output of the AC adapter and it was as stated 19.5 VDC
Would you happen to know if there is a way to test the power supply without having to purchase one first?
Thanks
