Question about Computers & Internet
Wait, did I just answer your question on another post? If so then you weren't as detailed last time. It sounds like you either have a power switch issue or a power supply problem. Go ahead and plug it in, if it automatically turns on then hold down the power switch for 10 seconds. This will force it to turn off. At this point unplug everything but keyboard, mouse, power cable, and video cable. Turn it on using the power switch and see if you can get into windows.
If you never get anything on the display at this point and only have those things connected you have hardware failure and will need to get it checked out by a local technician (or by Dell if still under warranty).

*Turn off your Dell laptop.
*Connect speakers to the speaker control box.
The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have.
Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you
plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of
the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to
the jacks on the back of the control box.
*Plug an audio cable into the
"Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is
color-coded, it will be green.
other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.
speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power
surges. *Plug the surge protector

*Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a
medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or
down after you turn your laptop on.
*Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is
coming from your speakers.
