Laptop not turning on, power LED on for 3 seconds

The title sums up the issue pretty much. The laptop is a custom laptop from and is maybe 2 years old at most. It's had no issues until just today when it refused to turn on any more. It was working normally only a couple hours prior to the issue happening, and it was put on standby by closing the screen. When I try to turn it on, the LED at the front goes green for maybe 3 seconds and then turns off. Nothing else turns on when the button is pressed, not the fans screen or keyboard lights.

I wanted to know if there was some way I could fix it at home before having to send it somewhere for repairs, so if you need any more info I'll share.

Thank you.
