Apple help

I've got a macbook 12"DVI that won't turn on. No noise, no whirring, no lights, no spinup, no nothin.

The light by the power cord that goes amber for charging and green for charged is always amber now. Last time it was on it had the blinking light by the front latch that i think meant it was in sleep mode.

Pulled the battery and the first LED blinks when i press the test button. tried it without the battery in.

i keep mashin down on the power and nuthin. i don't want to have to take this thing apart again.

Is this an apple with the nice magnetic power plug?
On PC's sometimes the power socket breaks a connection to the mainboard from people bashing the plug around or pulling on it, but on apples that doesn't happen because the plug is just held on magnetically.
It is possible the power adapter is shot, and as a result the battery is drained. If thats not the case, then it's probably a much more serious charging issue, which usually requires a replacement board.
