Dead e1505 laptop caused by defective PA-10 power adapter

\015 I have two dead Dell Inspiron (e1505 and e1705) laptop. The second\015\012one(E1505) was working on battery. I plugged in the PA-10 power\015\012adapterand turned it on. The machine was dead and would not turn even\015\012afterremoving the PA-10. The same PA-10 probably caused the e1705 to\015\012stopworking. I suspect a fuxe or FET on the motherboard but I do not\015\012have away to find out which one. Other internet search indicate that\015\012this isa know problem (by Dell) but they will not fix it unless it in\015\012underwaranty. How can I find out what part(s) to replace\015
