Dell c540' will not power on from battery or ac adapter. when hooked to the ac adapter the green light on the adapter gets dim then starts to flash. the laptopdoes nothing


Answers :

See if you can locate another ac adapter and try it. i would almost bet that you have a bad AC adapter. The second most likely suspect would be the dc jack where the adapter plugs in. Plug in the adapter and see how much "wiggle" room you have. If there is alot of play then it probably is your dc jack. That is a shop fix.
