Hello. Remove the battery and remove the AC plug, if you have it plugged in. Leave the battery out for two full minutes and then reinstall it. Then turn it back on. This maneuver will bring it back to the factory settings. If it still won't start and it is under warranty, go to Dell.com

Tips for a great answer:
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
