I am giving you a step which you should try once and see if it makes any difference.

Method (Power cycle)

You need to remove the battery, adapter and any other device connected to the computer (May be any additional cards or any wires as for Ethernet or speakers or external mouse/keyboard).

Nothing should be connected at all.

Now Press and hold the power button for 25 seconds (It wont show anything). This is a step to release any static charges developed, which may surely caused the kind of issue you are facing.

Now connect the battery and the adapter and check whether it works or not.

Let me know the response as well.

Hope this should help

    I think it is in the computer, maybe it is fried. Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Dell xps m1330, turns off unexpectedly. i have changed setting in control panel for battery options to turn off never if it is plugged in. it still shuts off randomly.

It could be overheating, and then shutting itself down, to prevent damage.

Restart, and enter SETUP mode, and choose the "System Health Info" setting, to find the internal temperatures.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed air.
Follow the directions to keep the can "vertical",
and give a "blow-job" of compressed air into every port and access-door that you can find on the laptop.

You could be surprised at how much "dust" (and dog-hair) that the blow-job removes.

How do i replace the back light from my xps m1330 dell

Well first I recommend if you do not already know how to do this, please do not. Second the cathode lights are normally 2 cathode lights, usually 1 on the top and 1 on the side, these are inside the outside plastics and set right up next to the screen, you will have to completely take apart the screen, will take an hour or so.

My dell m1330 laptop says that no batterey can be detected when a batterey i attached at the back of the laptop . anyone know a solution??

You either have a bad battery or the connector on the motherboard is bad. Have you tried another battery? Try doing a power drain.

Remove the battery and the AC connector, hold down the power button for 10 sec. Plug the AC connector back in and boot up your machine. Once it's fully booted then shut it down and plug the battery back in and try that out.
