Question about Dell Inspiron 518 Desktop Computer
There are a few things you can try. I've had similar problems like yours and went through the whole tower but it ended up being a currupt drive. You say that it won't power up, but is the fan on and the hard disc spinning. If they are you may find you have a corrupt hard drive.
What I did was remove the hard drive, connected to another pc via a adapter cable and opened it up from my computer. I backed up what i needed and then formatted the drive. Then returned it the tower and rebooted and reinstalled the operating system. It has been running fine ever since.
There are others that will recommend different ways, but to me it was easier and i lost no data and my pc is like a new one.
