now put in the battery and ac adapter and see if the battery is charging and laptop is starting if not call dell support,

I pluged in the power supply and nothing is happening. The small yellow batery icon came on near the screen and nothing else is happening


Remove the mains power lead and then take out the battery. Hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds to dispel any residual power.

Plug in just the mains lead (AC adapter) and see if the machine will boot on mains power only. If it does let it boot up and then shut it down again. Remove AC and reinsert the battery, plug in AC power again and see if it will boot with the battery in.

If it boots up the problem is sorted, if not then there is a problem with battery so you would have to use it on AC only until you find a replacement battery.

Please post back if need anymore help.

Good luck and regards.

1. Try using only the power supply.

2. If it won't turn on, unplug power supply then use just the battery.

3. If these two steps doesn't work since you've already replace the battery and the power supply.
You'll need to replace motherboard.

2) If it doesnt turn on at all then your motherboard may have a problem. The power supply is integrated on MB on most/all laptops.

2) if you need a motherboard replacement, try

I Have Dell D505 LAPTOP and it just booted up

remove all drives, RAM, battery,cards and any external connections, and see if the Lock LED indication changes. If it does change, add 1 RAM module, and see if the system POSTs. If it posts, add items back till you ID the one preventing post and replace it. If no change, then replace the motherboard ($150 or so on EBay)
