Question about Computers & Internet
When powering on the PC and you get no beeps, but you are getting power to the fans and hard drives, this may indicate either a bad power supply or bad memory. You can take the machine into a pc repair shop and have them test the memory and PSU for you.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 5160 wont turn on
I would suggest that first try running the psa test on ur system which could b done by press and hold FN key and power button together and leave it as soon as u see anything on the screen or any led in case u get any error code or beep sounds then it has to do with hardware and u ned to contact dell in case ur system is still under warranty.which lights do u see come up when u press the power button.I guess u r talking abt the led's for capslock , numlock and scroll lock.try reseating the memory module from the system and try running ur system on one memory chips and vise-versa because it seems that may b the prob is with the memory sticks.
in case u want manual for removing the memory sticks try using support.dell.com and u would get the manuals from there.

Without battery connected it wont work. Better buy a new batterry connect it and plug it for charging for 8Hrs conitnuosly without switching on the laptop.

sounds like your charging circuit isn't working or the adapter isn't putting out enough power or amprage to fully charge the battery, or you battery went bad. if the charging circuit is bad then so is *********** board, time to burry the system and buy a new one

Take out the battery and try booting the machine on AC power only. If the machine boots up then let the operating system load up, the shut it down. Remove the AC jack and put the battery back in again, then power it up.
If it boots all is well if it doesn't then there could be a problem with the battery.
If the laptop won't start on AC power, what you could do is remove the system memory, clean the brass pins and the slots and then re-seat them/it.
Then try to turn the machine on.
