The compressor clutch itself may be frozen. I would recommend having this looked at. Try to find a shop that offers a cheap or even free A/c diagnosis test. Hope this helps

How did you check the refrigerant, with a pressure guage? What was the high and low side pressures? If the system is low enough, the compressor will not turn on, there is a fail safe in the system to protect the compressor.
