Question about Computers & Internet
The laptop power light will come on only when the battery is taken out and the adapter is plugged in,when the battery is in,there is no power.
Is the battery good? A replacement? Have you tried a diferent battery with same specs? Different cord/charger? Any damage to laptop?

SOURCE: won't turn on
*Unplug the AC cord
*Remove the battery
*Locate the memory cover on the underside of the notebook
*Unscrew the one or two screws securing the memory cover, and lift up to remove the cover
*Gently slide (away from one another) the metal retaining clips that hold down the module.
*The module should pop up
*Remove the module
*Reinstall the module (removing and reinstalling the module is apparently enough to rectify the contacts)
*Replace the module cover and the battery
*Attach the power cord
*Try to power up

this may or may not be the solution but its some sort of indication of what is going on. Ok when you plug the ac adapter do u get a flashing light to indicate your batter is being charged? If you do then there is power going through the laptop to the battery, which is great. Now if you don't have the indicator flashing then it could be that the where the AC adapter plugs to the laptop could be now faulty. The other one could be that the AC adapter plug i.e. head that goes into the laptop some how internally has a severed connection.
comment on what you find and ill see what else i can advice :)

nope, it is your dc power regulator board. you will note this happens if the battery is in or out of the laptop. that is the key test. some regulators are on the main board and some are seperate for this reason. I think the vostro though is on the main board. A little board re-work will resolve this issue after replacing some components, but this is way beyond a home user's ability.. trust me on this. Sorry for the bad news. Thanks!

Testimonial: "Thanks for your answer. I guess I will check what the repair costs may be, and if too much, just get a new machine."
hopefully you got the right adapter for the machine and if so and still no lights or nothing you can try to hold in the resetr button on the back of the machine and turn on the power at the same time and see what happens if still nothing i would look at getting the machine serviced by a authorized dealer
you may have a bad board or the internal cmos battery is dead or there is a loose connection somewhere ok?
best regards michael
