Hello, Brian.

Several general reasons why a laptop won't turn on:

1. Battery
2. Power adapter
3. Power jack
4. Outlet

First, connect your laptop directly to a working outlet. Then, if you are powering on your system with the power adapter connected, the power adapter may be faulty and need replacing. If you wiggle the adapter where it connects to the laptop and the power goes off and on or there is a loose connection, the power jack needs soldering or replacing.

Hope this helps.

Hope this helps.

likeley you have problems with th4e motherboard or the system power board, or even the laptop power switch. try taking out the battery and try to turn it on, if it powers up then it's a battery issue, otherwise you need to have a repair center look at it.

My inspiron laptop wont turn on after I replaced


Verify that you obtained an exact replacement power adapter for the Dell. If it is an exact replacement then try this. Disconnect power adapter. Remove battery. Reconnect power adapter without the battery. If it turns on, then power off and place battery back in. Then try again. If problem returns, there could be a problem with the battery itself.

Laptop wont turn on


Try removing the battery and plug in the power adapter and then power on your laptop. If this doesn't work, put the battery back in and plug in the power adapter and try turning it on. If that doesn't work then take the power cable out and try with only the battery. Try in this order and see if it comes back up, if not, you may have some dead hardware.
