This could be a bad memory chip. Try taking out the memory, putting one or the other in and starting, then changing them out and starting. If it's not a battery or memory, then the problem will most likely be with the motherboard. You will need to take it in for a professional diagnostic in order to find out whether it's a replaceable component on the board or if you will need a new board.

Have a dell inspiron 1300 new battery was off about 2 weeks,plugged back in get slow blinking green light after all night wont come on when i push power button ???

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

No power leds. My Ac adapter is new with the right voltage coming out. I have to keep on unplugging the power cord then the green light comes on my Dell Inspiron 1300

If the adapter is new or OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Dell inspiron 1300 display

Does this happen regardless of operating system state? (e.g. if you interrupt normal booting to windows)? You could try booting from e.g. linux live cd to see whether the issue is operating system-specific or if it's caused by a hardware problem.
I've seen very similar symptoms on several Thinkpad T41s where ATI graphics chips were failing, I hope it's not the case with your dell.
Good luck,

Dell inspiron 1300 does not switch on

try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If this doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive then turn on ht laptop.

If after all of these steps you still don't get video then the motherboard is bad.
