Re: won't turn on
Ok, take out all devices from the computer, memory hard drive, battery, and anything that provides power to the computer as well. hold down the power button for 30+ seconds and put everything back in. then try turning on the laptop. if you have any more questions, please email me at email@example.com
This is an issue with the motherboard and or proc. You will need service. You can get the parts and replace them yourself. If I had to guess. I would go for the proc. I think it would be cheaper. If you are under contract then call Dell and they will get you the parts you need.

Has there been ANY damage? Have you tried another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged it? Unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to reboot. Has it been overheating? Fan, vents, heatsink clean?
Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
Instead of unplugging everything, only unplug 1/2 of the things. If it still won't start, unplug 1/2 of the remaining things (noting which ones they are). If it restarts then, it was one of the last set of things you removed that is the problem, so keep eliminating possibilities in this fashion this until you can determine which component it was. If it turns out to be the power cord, it could be a problem with the power supply.
Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya This is a fairly common problem Ok what you need to do is first turn off the laptop then remove the battery from the laptop then after the battery is out press and hold in on the power button for 45 seconds (this allows for the esd to be released) Now get the power cord and plug it in *** NOT HE BATTERY YET*** NOW try to start up the computer it should start up ok now if so great let it boot fully then attempt to shut down normally then replace the battery and you should be ok If not then immediately unplug the machine then you will have to try 1 of 3 things first is to remove all the memory and then see if it will start if so replace the memory 1 at a time then start up after each memory module has been installed you may find it wont boot with 1 of the memory modules if so that module may be bad ok? Please try these things first let me know so i can proceed on if i have to ok? Best regards Mike
