Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook
Lets start with do you have a light on you laptop charger, make sure that has voltage probable 19v dc. If it does then you could have a burned up dc power jack. this is very common in a lot of laptops, they get so hot and the solder on your dc jack starts to break down then that will cause more resistance on your charger so it gets hot and your dc jack at times crackles because of arching inside then they burn up. now you can try to take the motherboard out and see if it is in fact the dc jack on the motherboard, just go online dell support download a manual for it. or take it to a pc tech or someone you trust whom knows how to solder if it is in fact the problem, because thats just 1 of many things it could be, but you have to start at these 2 places 1st

Try firstly removing the laptop's
battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not
start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what
happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then
boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.
