Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook ?

Dell inspiron 9400 won't come on

\015 When i press the power button the green light comes on for a second then goes off. The battery is new so I know its not that.....any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Hi I am Vortash this sounds like an internal problem possibly a faulty component ,, when the hard drive is faulty this sympton can arise .
\015\012Remove the hard drive and see if the computer starts to boot into it's bios state prior to starting windows .. it should then say no operating system but would point to a hard drive failure .. as you already have a new battery , this is about all a non technical person can do .It will need a service engineer to do any further tests under the correct conditions a screwdriver in the wrong place on a laptop can cause a great deal of damage .. sorry to not be of more help regards Vortash
The power supply would be the culprit. I would suggest you check the power supply then wokr your way down from that.
\015\012The power supply could have bad capcitors it could even have a bad transformer. When in doubt check the power supply inside the unit.
\015\012please do not shoot the messanger as the messanger cannot see whats going on please do rate.
