Dell Latitiude 1100 Will not boot has poweron issue

I have a Dell L 1100 that will not power on.Power supply is good and battery condition is unknown.Here is the weird part if I tap the area around the start button an amber light flickers on briefly.If I thump the bottom sides of the palm rest 2 green lights flicker on. In both cases there is no attempt to boot. Do I have a haunted laptop or is this a known issue?
Email help is welcome and appreciated !!

    seems to be a common problem with the 1100. Mousepad which has a magnetic reed switch keeps it from starting.Found the solution on a different forum.Thanks for trying.

I also have a dell inspiron 1100. It seems that it has overheated, and your motherboard or CPU has fried, or died from the heat. What you say sounds like a motherboard failure

There is currently an ongoing lawsuit. Also, take my advice, and instead of trying to fix it, you're better of getting a new computer, as the dell is getting old anways. I spent some extra cash and got myself a vaio.

My dell inspiron M5030 turns on showing the dell logo and then it turns off


I would remove the power supply, battery, hard drive and RAM. Power up the laptop with just the power adapter and enter bios. If it goes to bios OK, select the default setting. Press F10 and let it try to re boot.
Remove the power supply and fit the RAM. Insert the power supply and try to boot. You should have error message on screen. Remove the power and insert the hard drive. Connect the power supply and attempt to boot.
That sequence should show the issue at the point that there is no display that is where the issue is.

Orange light comes on only when i press the power button


Lots of things that can be. It is 1 of the many parts failed to allow boot. Its usually a failed hard drive or power supply. More often its the power supply due to the low wattage dell specific units they were at that time.

Dimension 1100 not booting. In Boot sequence screen, says "Hard drive not installed"


Your hard drive is probably toast and needs to be replaced and Windows reloaded.

Make sure to check your BIOS settings first and make sure the drive is showing up in there and it's not deactivated.
