Default Laptop does not turn on

Recently, my laptop has not been able to turn on. My adapter seems to work fine. When I try to turn the laptop on nothing lights up, it is just dead. What is usually the main cause for this situation to occur?

thank you

Could be 100,000 reasons.

What do you mean by "seems to be working"? You might have a bad PSU in your laptop.

Did you try it with just the battery or just the AC on?
