I have the same problem. You have to take your battery out and then plug it in. I had my motherboard replaced and it is a little better, but I still have a bad connection between the charger and the laptop. I have to make sure they are connected just right for it to work at all.

SOURCE: Dell vostro 1700 won't turn on
One thing you can try is
remove the RAM and the Hard drive and the battery and any power source let it sit for 10 minutes or so for the capacitors to discharge the energy in their stores. I would probably get a can of compressed air thats made for computers and give it a good couple times over getting in those ports.
Sometimes if a laptop receives a power spike it will retain that extra energy or in turn it causes a glitch. I.E the computer refusing to power up. It could also be a failsafe. I have repaired countless laptops that seemed DOA but sometimes it happens.
Give it a try and let me know what happens

The best advice would be to update the BIOS and then go to the BIOS utility and restore the settings back to default. This might resolve the issue if it is software related. If not then visit the manufacturer's website and download the latest chipset drivers. Restart.
Try using a different power adapter of the same kind and check for the issue.
Turn off system and remove the power cable and battery and press the power button for about 30 seconds to power drain the system.
Turn on and check.
If not the main board itself is the issue for which I would request you to contact the manufacturer.
