Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook
Last night, my laptop was working fine. It had been on for a while, so it was working slowly, but no major problems. I shut it down normally and it seemed ok. This morning, I tried to turn it on and there's absolutely no power going to this thing. Dell recently replaced my motherboard (2 months ago) for similar problems, and it's worked great ever since. My charger cord is in working order. I thought it may be my battery, but the laptop doesn't even attempt to power on. No lights, no usual "click" when it turns on... nothing. Please help--it's finals week! -=LadyGrey=-
These like to short MOSFET's in the supply line and if Dell wont help yell back weve repaired a ton of them.. Good luck!
(Does the LED on the adapter go out when you plug it into the machine)?

Get in touch with Dell again as the replaced part will be under warranty. You can never tell whether a new or second hand motherboard has been fitted, as manufacturers are able to do either when they repair it, so it just may well of failed again.
