Started once for 5 min now won't boot

I bought the MacBook Pro for my daughter's birthday. When it arrived she was able to turn it on without a problem, but after about 5 minutes it shut down (we thought the battery wasn't charged). Now it won't boot. The battery indicator on the side is working fine and is showing full, but aside from that it's completely unresponsive. I am waiting to hear back from the company I bought it from online, but that won't be until Monday. Can anyone help, please???

I reset the SMC, disconnected the battery and mag-safe, pressed the power button for 5 seconds. After I plugged everything back in nothing happened...


That sounds like a logic board problem. I'd return it ASAP.


Super. I'm sending it back today.

Thanks for your help.
