Try one memory module at a time -- you may have a bad module or a bad socket.  If one module fails in both sockets, replace it -- if both modules fail to work in one socket -- or both modules fail in either socket - the mainboard is bad.

Disconnect everything external (USB).  Unplug the system and remove the battery.

Hold the power button for 30 sec.

Remove and reinstall the memory modules.

Try powering up on AC only - if it will, but won't with the battery installed, the battery is bad.

If it still won't power up, the mainboard is bad.
