Hp Spectre x2 won’t power on at all

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x2 model 12-a008nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased this detachable laptop in August. I’ve used it sparingly but usually a few times a week 

I haven’t used it in 5 weeks but today when I try to power it up while connected to the wall charger nothing happens. 

The only thing I see is the white light on the right side above the charge port will blink 2 times. If I hold the power button down the light blinks 2 times every 7 seconds or so. But nothing on the keyboard or screen. 

Move tried holding the power for 60 seconds as well as holding it in combination with the mute and volume buttons. 

Nothing seems to work. 

It has now been charging via the wall outlet for an hour now so even if the battery was completely drained it should have recovered by now. 

i don’t think it’s  my charger cord as I have multiples and none work or my wall outlet as no outlet I try works. 

Many suggestions???
