Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook
There are several possibilities. 1st and most probable is that the power module has failed, and by that it could have a wire broken in the part from the brick to the computer. It will then give just enough power to let the computer see it, but when it ties to power on it just overwhelms the current capacity of the last piece or two of wire. To check that sometimes you can run your fingers down the cable, slightly bending it and if you get a place that is extremely flexible (different from the rest) That could be the point. But there are also times you just can't find it. If you have a friend who has a dell, you might try using their power supply for a moment. Usually it will just say incorrect supply but will still power up. That tells you it is the power supply.
2nd and much more of a problem could be the internal charging circuit. If the charging circuit has completely failed, it needs to be replaced, which is not an easy job, nor is it inexpensive. I have rarely seen the power light operate at all though with this problem.
If all you need is the video off the drive, you can purchase a usb to 2.5" drive at your local electronics store, then remove the drive and copy it to your other computer.
