No spark 42cc poulan chainsaw

I am not getting any spark from the spark plug, I put a screw driving in the cap where the spark plug connects to see if there was any juice getting to the plug, it doesn't seem to be getting any ignition.
anyone have any idea's

Are you grounding the plug while checking for spark? If so, unplug the kill wire from the coil and check again. If still no spark, the coil is bad or misadjusted.
