Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Do you see the green light going off on the AC adapter right when you plug in to the system ? If yes, it could be an indication of a faulty motherboard. Check if the AC adapter light remains on when it is not connected to the system. You may also try releasing the static power by disconnecting all external devices (Including AC adapter and battery) and holding the power button down for 15-20 secs. Check if it helps. Also try with a known good adapter if there is one. Let me know about the light indications in the system when this issue occurs.
Thanks and Regards.

Testimonial: "Hi Kiran I have tried that already. Tried starting with and without the battery, held the button down for at least 30 secs, and nothing. Here's something I'm not sure I mentioned - green light on power pack comes on when I plug it into the wall. Stays on when I plug it into computer. As soon as I hit the power button, the light fades out. It won't come back on unless I disconnect from AC."
Could be both but, I doubt it. Try new power supply or borrow from friends and try it.

The motherboard is bad. This model had a fault where after a while the North Bidge heatsink would break off and short the motherboard distroying it. This problem is something to not fix, it is not worth it, cost more than it is worth.

If the Dell Diagnostics passes then the issue is in the software part of the computer.. You may have to reinstall the OS inorder to address this issue..
Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..
If this option is not available then reinstall using the disc The issue will be fixed
