Question about Dell Precision M50 Notebook
While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the
most common and easiest to
troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like Crucial.com, or borrow one for testing purposes.
If this did not turn out to be the case, then you might consider removing the various components of the laptop, on part at a time, & trying to power it on to see if the problem is resolved. Start by removing the easier parts first, like the hard drive, optical drive, wireless adapter, modem, ... etc.
Continue to remove the parts, one a t a time, till you only have the motherboard & the LCD screen. Re-install the RAM, & test whether the system will stay up when turned on or not. If not, then consider replacing the motherboard with a new one.
