So ive just received a new Asus X555U laptop today, and upon opening it and plugging it in, it neither turns on, nor shows any indication of charging on the LEDs. When plugged in the lightbulb and airplane mode LEDs flash for a second, and then go blank again, without the charging led turning on or doing anything at all. I’ve read a few posts about unplugging it and holding the power for 60 seconds to flush residual power but that hasnt done anything for me so far.

Some of those non removable battery models just straight up won't boot if they don't detect a battery. It could be you received a laptop with a faulty battery. I would contact the manufacturers for a replacement. It also could be a bad charger, but no matter what it is, a laptop right out of the box should work, so they need to replace it.
