Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook ?

My computer has sat for 14 months and now it will not turn on.


Answers :

HI, this is quite a while for a cpu to sit without a charge or, plug in cycle. If this is a PC desktop, you may need to replace the motherboard battery and, main power supply as well.

Now, if this is a laptop, you will need to replace the battery(external rechargeable cell).
The battery is probably dead. Since the power runs THROUGH the battery, you may need to replacing the battery. There are tools out there that will charge/deplete batteries to help recondition them but having it sit for so long without use may not work. Another (easy) thing to try is to remove the battery and clean the contacts well on the battery and on the computer. If the contacts have oxidized at all, that could perpetuate the problem.
