Will not power up

My laptop seemed to work fine. I sat it on a shelf for about two months. Now it will not power up. I have tried both battery and wall plug. Any suggestions?

If the battery drains completely the machine will not start until it has about a 20% charge with a 65W magsafe. If you have a removable battery, test it by pressing the button on it and let us know how many lights you get. If it's charged, reset your SMC and give it a try. Click here, for instructions on resetting your SMC. Please let us know your results. Also, please give us the last 3 characters of your serial number, so we can determine your exact machine.

+ Since we don't know if this has a removable battery or not yet, I edited your post to help them do what you were intending for them to do.
