Inspiron 8500 won't boot - num lock and caps lock light up

\015 I'm at wits end with my 8500. Basically, if I turn it off I won't be able to reboot it until about a day later. If I try to turn it on before that the num lock and caps lock lights will come on and stay solid for about 10 seconds, turn off and that's it - the computer never boots.\015\012\015\012To boot it I HAVE to wait about a full 24 hours and try again; sometimes, waiting 24 hours won't even do it. In that case I take out the battery and disconnect the computer from the power supply. Then reconnect the computer to the power supply (without the battery) and voila! it boots.\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015
