If you are sure that your charger and battery are working as usual. The possible cause is the laptop lid switch.
If it is broken, you may have power but your screen may not come on.
This is usually a little button or mechanism located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your screen when your lid is open or closed respectively.Normally the operator does not push this button. These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be fixed,more often they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to repair/replace it for you. Opening up laptops is a very delicate operation and much more difficult to repair than desktops. It may be worth it to spend the money for repair.

Go to CONTROL PANEL / POWER OPTIONS / POWER METER. Is the battery charged or charging?
If POWER METER says the battery is charged, you have a motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.
Do you have a voltmeter?
Remove the battery and check for voltage at the laptop's battery contacts, while it is plugged in. No voltage = charging circuit defect. A blown internal fuse or other motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.
Voltage OK or no voltmeter - take it to a tech.
A qualified technician should have a schematic and other technical documentation for your model It can be rather difficult (expensive) and hit-or-miss to locate possible fuses without the factory paperwork.

SOURCE: Dell laptop charger
First try starting the machine without the battery, only the charger, Then check the charger with an ohm meter to see if it's working properly. The out put readings are listed on the charger. In case of a surge, the charger is designed to go out first before damaging the system. However, this is not always the case. If the charger checks good, then you should take it in for a professional diagnostic because the problem may be with the power management system on the motherboard. One thing to keep in mind for future reference is when moving to a different location with your laptop, when unplugging the charger, always unplug the charger from the laptop before unplugging from the wall socket, and when plugging in, always plug the charger into the wall socket before plugging into the laptop. This will keep from surging your system.

Get another laptop.
The A135 is a lemon.
Problem is either with the dc jack on the board or more than likely the motherboard is damaged.
I've repaired a number of A135's and 95% of the time motherboard had to be replaced.
Sorry for the bad news, but I hope this helps.

If you are familiar with your laptop, i.e. the locations of hard drive, try to take it out of the its bay and put it back again. Also, if you can have someone check your battery packs, because from my experience with this laptop, when the battery packs is not charging well, i got some booting up problems.

SOURCE: my laptop won't turn on
remove the battery and power cord for a few minutes then try again. if that doesnt work, remove the ram and put it back in. there is a good chance you friend something. do you have the power ratings of the aftermarket charger you tried? and did it turn on at all with the aftermarket one?
