No guarantee but you can try this. Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Hold down power button for 30 seconds. Plug in AC adapter but leave battery out. Try to restart computer. If it starts, reinstall battery. It worked on a Gateway I was working on last week. Worth a try.

My dell vostro 1500 will not power on.

takje out the power cable and the battery. and then connect the power cable and check if you see any light on the adapter.

if there is light on the adapter: mobo in the computer is bad

if there is no light on the adapter: adapter is bad.

Consider repalcing either one of it.

if your computer is in warranty call dell to get the parts replaced. else. if mobo has gone bad.
take the computer to the repair shop and see if he can repair it for you else. dont go and buy a new mobo.
buy a new computer.

Best of Luck!

Turn on my Dell Vostro 1500 and all I get is a black screen

Remove and re-seat your RAM cards. Remove your battery but leave the power supply attached. Try to start. If this doesn't work, your motherboard has died and needs to be replaced. Not a do-it-yourself job unfortunately.

BATTERY LIGHT GOES OUT EVERYTIME CONNECT CORD TO LAPTOP.....Therefore, my vostro 1500 will not turn on, at all. No sign of any power. It shut down and won't come back on.

Try to turn on your laptop by removing battery and connecting it directly with A/C adapter.
This will help us know if the issue is battery.

I recommend you to try the steps in the below link:

Follow the steps from No Boot or no Power in laptops.
