    Is the battery charged and in the case?
    Is the computer hooked up to AC power?

    Try this: Hook the computer up to the AC power without the battery installed and tell us what happens.

This is common issue and that typically means your Processor is dead. If you dont hear any beeping and it powers off after three seconds without any activity on the screen means BIOS hasnt even found the Processor and without the processor you will get no POST. Post is a bunch of tests for hardware components and give beep codes if it finds an error. Only issue it cant post an error if the processor isnt working. Solution, order a new processor for your laptop and replace it or buy a new computer. If you order a new processor be sure to order some thermal paste too.

Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.

When I push the power button, the power button lights up, as do the lock lights. The lock lights turn off after about 3 secs, I hear the fan start, but nothing else happens. No screen, keyboard not...

This may sound awkward, but, turn the unit over and tighten all available screws on the bottom. this should/ may solve your problem. This is a common problem with Dell laptops. If this does not solve your problem you may have to utilize a rescue disk. Thank you, Dana
