    I’m having the exact same issue. Mine is just six months out of warranty and far too new to spontaneously die. I tried the pin method and it still didn’t turn back on. It’s just acting like a dead chunk of plastic. 

    Any other ideas?

    You both need to get access to another charger and test to see if it charges and turns on, your local computer store may allow you to use one. If it is not the charger it is probably the battery that needs replacing or worse still the Motherboard may be fried. This type of computer damage is common when the power cord is plugged directly into the wall outlet. PC and Laptop power cords should ALWAYS be plugged into a Surge Protector and NOT directly into an outlet. Surge Protectors are inexpensive and protect your computer from surges in your household electricity supply

    It was plugged in and fully charged at the time, and was plugged into a surge protector.
