Macbook Pro won't turn on

Many apologies I will try to be a little more accommodating next time. No need to be so rude I thought this was supposed to be a help forum for users of all degrees of experience.

Oh dear !!

macbook pro won't turn on.

I actually got a three month warranty with it. So I will probably go for a refund.

Incidentally I have already tried a PRAM reset but to no avail.
