MacBook Air does not power on

My MacBook Air does not power on.  The battery was drained and I am currently attempting to charge it.  So far I get no response when I press the power button.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi jduran04,

Please hold the power button for 10 seconds and then let go. Now, press the power button again firmly to start your Mac. You should see your power light come on, if not then Xaelian's comment about your power adapter is most likely the problem. To make sure that your power adapter is working properly, unplug it from the outlet you are currently using, plug it into one that you know works, attach the cable to your MacBook Air and wait for the light on your cable end to go from red to green.

Hope this helps.

Can you try it with a different power cable? It can be that the adapter is defect and doesn't give a lot of juice :)

Does the light on the mag-safe connector from your power brick where it plugs into the Mac come on? Red means charging, green means fully charged. No light usually means the power brick needs replacing (cable tends to fray and break at the connector).

If your power adapter is working, try holding Control + Shift + Option + Power Button for 30 seconds with the power cord connected.  Then try booting normally.
