There is no power light no booting. the problem is no apple store or a known qualified apple technician around too. What shall I do.

Little back ground; I always keep the machine plugged in the power, could this be a good reason?

MacBook Pro, Windows 7

    No - surely there is an Apple Authorized Service Provider around you somewhere?

     

    Sounds as if you have significant hardware failure - you'll need to take it to an AASP somewhere... no one here can fix it for you.

    If no result, you can call AppleCare & they will arrange to have your computer shipped in for service. If your computer is no longer covered by AppleCare or you did not purchase such, you will have to pay for the call.

    The System Management Controller reset fixed my totally dead MBP.  I had a similar problem as HussainDawnman with a USB spike and it bricked the machine...then the SMC reset brought it all back...good as before!
