Question about Dell Vostro 1710 Laptop
Sounds to me like a short circuit either in the power receptacle in the laptop, the motherboard or any of the components attached to the motherboard.
First to diagnose the power receptacle, please refer to the following tip written by me:
Next, if you made sure that it is not a power receptacle problem, then you will have to disassemble your laptop, removing one component at a time & testing. First start by removing the battery, hard drive, RAM modules, CD/DVD drive, wireless card adapter, .... etc. Continue removing the parts till you only have the motherboard, testing after you remove each component. Once you get the power LED on the power adapter to glow when plugged to the laptop, you then know that the component you just removed is the faulty one that needs to be replaced. If you reach the point where all components have been removed & only the motherboard is remaining, then the mother board is the defective part that needs to be replaced.
