Question about Dell Inspiron 3800 Celeron 500MHZ Processor (CPU) - 569KW
Dell Inspiron 3800 won't boot with or with out battery. No noise at all, lights come on for a few seconds then back off. With battery installed after the lights go back off, the charging light stays on. I had one latitude that did this and it was the RAM but I've tried 4 different sticks of PC100 that work in other Dells I have.
Hey i had the same problem but i am only 15 years old. Just becuse i'm little does not mean i dont know much about computers. i tried many things and i have found a solution that works for me. Hopefully it will work for you.i first unplugged all peripherals and accessories including the ac charger plug. Then carefully push back the battery lock switch and remove the battery. Since the battery light on the laptop flashes and stays lit i thought the battery is not fully charged or not instaledd properly. So then you remove the battery. Then you plug in the ac charger cable again and power it on. A few messages might appear and starting windows normally is what you should do. Now the sart-up screen should apear and you should be alright. You should re-install a cpoy of your windows though just to be safe. Hope this helps.

Could be a variety of hardware issues ... if you have a modem card remove it first ... leave the battery out as it is not required to operate the laptop as long as you have ac power ... leave all the ram chips out as most laptops have some ram built in ... remove the harddrive and any other internal drives ... also disconnect anything external ... network printers etc... after that yopu are into removing the keyboard and disconnecting the video ...but it gets a bit complicated if you have never worked on laptops before...
