Question about Dell Inspiron 1520 Motherboard
My computer refuses to turn on. It spent weeks when it would sometimes turn on occasionaly and doesnt matter whether it is plugged in on battery or both.
You have an obvious electrical problem. It could be that the switch on the power module is faulty.
Remove the hinge cover and depress the power switch on the power module. If the system is starting without hinderance then the issue is the tab under the hinge cover is not making proper connection with the switch below. If the same problems persist when you go directly to the power module then the module has a faulty switch. Radio shack has those tact switches for $3.58. You can either replace the switch or replace the module.

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps
