Will not turn on - tried all suggestions on google

So basically I woke up yesterday and my computer decided not to turn on. I could hear it attempting to turn on (kind of sounded like it was breathing because the fans would slightly come on and then turn off) but no change to the screen or anything. It has been plugged in for 24 hours and still shows an orange light on charging cord.

I wrote this off as a loss yesterday, but then today I randomly opened it and it turned on. The fans were super loud but it worked and I was able to use the computer. Shut the laptop and came back 2 hours later and it’s now having the same problems. Any suggestions or is this toast?

Given the systems age I’m suspecting your battery is shot.

Lets try this pop the bottom cover off and disconnect the battery. Then press and hold the power button for a good 30 secs. The plug in the MagSafe charger did the system boot up then?
