O.k. if you can get to the initial Dell screen, then it's a bad hard drive. If it does nothing, then here are three things that can cause this that you can check, 1- check the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output, 2- remove the battery, and start with the supply only, and 3- remove the memory, and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If one of these wasn't the problem and it still persists, then the problem will be with the power management system on the motherboard. You can either replace the motherboard, or take it in for a professional diagnostics to find the exact problem component.

Hard drive


It means that your HDD is damage, no good. Need to get another one and reformat your computer.
The way to troubleshoot any computer that won't turn on is checking the power supply fan to see if it does anything when pressing the power button. If you see that the fan try to start but stall, then there is a bad hardware install. What I do is take all the hardware out and start the troubleshooting by installing the hardware one at a time. When the computer stop responding after installing one of the hardware, then it means that this hardware is bad. You already troubleshoot the computer by installing the HDD and seeing that the computer won't start.

Laptops use shared RAM, part of the main RAM is allocated as video RAM.
If the RAM is faulty then this could be the problem, get the RAM tested at your friendly computer repair shop.

Hi grade laptop fan not working


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

Is it charging? If it isn't then try a different charger but reopen it and clean it with a soft brush and try again otherwise it looks like you've a PSU fault there and you have either disconnected or caused static damage to the system.

Wont start up after ram upgrade


Try reseating the memory and if that doesn’t work, install the 512’s one at a time to see if one might be defective. If the laptop still won’t turn on, reinstall original memory and see if laptop powers on.
