    Any other signs of life?
    Regardless of power source, when you first try to turn it on, do the typical LED lights flash briefly? (Those for Num/Caps or Scroll Lock)
    Do you hear any noise (very low level) from the hard or optical drive spinning up?Any 'beep tones'?These things would indicate that the BIOS is still functional.
    Any screen indication at all?

    These are just a few of the things we would need to learn before we can even start to help you.

    If nothing is happening as described above, the CPU can fail disabling about everything, a failed memory chip can do this too but this normally would cause some 'beeps.'

Unless a highly unlikely combination failure has happened; a battery pack whose thermal fuse has opened and a charger not working any more, it sounds either like a failed BIOS chip (which may not be removable from the main board) or a dead CPU which can be replaced and the Celeron isn't costly.
You might inquire at Dell to see if they have an exchange program for the whole board. Notebooks are not fun to work on but anyone using caution and having a few (pretty small) tools can do it. As insurance, I recommend taking pics of the opened unit to avoid panic when reassembling.

RE: DELL Inspiron 1300 Hello, Would a 14" screen

NO! it will fit in the opening but it will not have anything holding it in. So while yes it technically will "fit" it wont work as the screen will fall out every time you close it!

The inspiron 1300 will not detect the dell battary it says no battary

HI there,

Is there any way you can check this battery. Ideally it would be great if you could test this in another 1300 to see if it does the same.

I am thinking that the battery may be dead and you may be able to get a cheap replacement on,

I had a 1300 and this was my problem. I borrowed a friends battery and all worked well,

I hope this is helpful

Dell Inspiron 1300 Of front left four lights, the third is flashing red

I believe that is the battery light indicator saying that the battery is depleted. If you've attempted to recharge the laptop, I'd put my money on a bad AC Adapter. Try a different AC Adapter. Dell laptops are very picky, so I'd recommend acquiring a Dell-brand adapter to ensure it will charge your battery.

make sure the battery is charged. if it is and is not working take your battery out and blow on the prongs/etc on inside and on battery. if problem persists your system might have failed. sorry if this is inaccurate but i'm only going on information you are providing.

Dell inspiron 1300 does not switch on

try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If this doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive then turn on ht laptop.

If after all of these steps you still don't get video then the motherboard is bad.

Dell inspiron 1300 wont work from the AC adapter

Is the laptop working without the battery, directly on AC. Have you tried using another charger or battery to see if its charging.
