Answers :

Your power button does not work or respond due to unplug.
\015\0122-power up with another battary
\015\0123-Start pc with charger without battary
\015\0124-check your power button it is properly pressed.
\015\012finally your pc is unpluged then this problem occured
Remove the battery and power on the system with just the power adapter. if this works, issue is either with the battery or the motherboard. remove and reconnect the battery, if no go, try using another battery from another system. If this works, it would be a battery failure. In this event, check with Dell if your battery is still within warranty. if this does not work, remove and reconnect the DIMMs of the laptop. If you have spares, swap them to see if that works
