I've seen this when the motherboard dies. Do try a few cheap things.

1. Replace the CMOS battery (we get them for 25 cents in bulk, dollar each and some owners balk at the price?) Then replace that, do the reset again but hold the button down for 60 seconds.

2. Unplug all things you can and retest. No HDD, SSD, WiFi USB etc. If it won't power up it's usually the motherboard.

Get a price on that board and check your warranty status.

thanks for your answer, the laptop is diconnected from all external devices, and I don't think the problem come from the adapter or the battery because when I'm charging the LED in the PC turn on, I tried to power press without the charger, doesn't seem to change sometging, the power LED blink when I press on the power button. I Don't know how to know if the mother-board is done.

So you completed the list I gave?

Too often it's the motherboard. Get a price for that. As to the LED, when the board failed the LED means little. To know if it's the motherboard we pop in a working one. There's so few parts to laptops so motherboards are a recurring replacement item.
