From what you have said it sounds like your battery might be the problem. Have you connected the computer to the wall and tried to turn it on. Is the same happening then?

When trying to start up my dell latitude CPX nothing happens, and when I plugg up the wall charger, there is a blinking light but still no power

A blinking light normally indicates a dead battery; however, since it does not power up when power is plugged in, I would suspect that the power jack on the motherboard needs to be repaired. This would explain the lack of power and the inability to charge the battery. I replace powerjacks a lot. Good luck. -Carlos:

My Dell latitude Cpx laptop just does not power up, just flickers

I had the same problem on my CPx. It turned out to be a bad memory module. With bad (or no) RAM, nothing is going anywhere, so it immediately shuts down. New memory, no problems.
