If the laptop is completely dead, aka nothing will appear on the screen, then it's probably not a virus but rather a hardware issue. Am I correct in assuming the laptop doesn't turn on at all, that it is indeed completely dead?

does a light come on the power adaptor? Maybe the power adaptor is bad.

Good idea. That is what I was going to suggest, that you check the power supply and the power cord.
