M5312 Will Not Power Up

Original owner since 2004; pristine condition. One minute working fine, next minute no power LED, no charge LED, no nothing.

It had been working on AC for at least 2 hours without an issue. Now nothing.

Put laptop and charger in freezer for 30 minutes, still nothing. Obviously something catastrophic has failed. Besides checking for power output from charger, what are the hands-on recommendations? I have build many desktops before from scratch but never a laptop.

Flashing orange light generally indicates battery low charge could be your battery at fault
the next time you try and power on and it doesnt work, take the battery out (unplug AC) and try to run just on AC power

Dell inspiron 5150 do not come on when the power button pressed


If you remove the battery and disconnect power cord, then hold power button for 20 seconds, then reconnect power cord but do not re-insert battery, and the unit powers on okay, the problem may be your battery. If there is still an intermittent problem, the power connector inside the unit may be loose and need re-soldering, or you could have a bad power supply.

These are older devices, and Lihium-Ion batteries degrade from the date of manufacture. You will most likely need to follow instructions (easy to find on the internet) to "fix" the battery. It needs two new cells.
