MagSafe LED going ON/OFF

I have a MacBook Pro. Retina. 2015. 15". New. I installed Windows 10 on partition through boot camp. Been using OS X and win 10 for a few days now with no issues. Suddenly I'm in Windows 10 and I look back over and my Mac is off.

Charger cable shows orange then green then orange. Normal pattern. I can tell the laptops on cause I hear noise in the hard drive fan area. Screen stays black though. Doesn't turn on at all. No noise either. Keyboard won't turn on nor will the caps lock green light. HDMI too tv won't show anything either. Laptop gets hot then I turn it back off. And nothing.

Maybe Windows 10 issue on that partition? If so how do I force my Mac too start on the OS X partition. Especially if the screen stays dark no matter what. Even trying safe mode and all that. Contact me at iconic Kronic @jessabethany if possible since you seem to understand this stuff.

Update (11/03/2015)

I unplugged t from the wall. Turned it on and let it drain the battery. Woke up in the morning and plugged in the charger and bam it came back on and works now. Why is this?

As you just bought the system I would recommend you just bring the system in to an Apple Store as they can fix this for free!

The problem you are having here is not a software issue but a hardware issue with the power subsystem which will require replacement parts.

Hi! I know this really sucks, but I may have a few solutions for you.

First of all, I would recommend holding down the power button until you hear the fans stop, and you see the Mac boot up. If you can get your display to show anything, hold down the option key when you see the apple logo. This will allow you too see the different partitions on your Mac. You can either choose the OS X partition or try Windows again.

If this doesn't work, you may need to open your Mac and reconnect the battery. Just follow iFixit's guide to removing the bottom cover, then dice next the battery cable. Wait about five seconds and plug it back in. Once you put everything back to together, you should get a better result. If none of this works, then try an Apple Store... Good luck!
