Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?
My dell inspiron 1525 wont switch on, no lights or sound at all please help!
If all powers ok then check u r power switch pin 3v or check ur processor ok
The first thing to try is a different AC adapter. About half of all no power failures are the AC adapter no longer sends power to the system. You can also use a multimeter to check the DC output of the adapter (About 20VDC) If the AC adapter is putting out power or a known good adapter doesn't make any difference, then try reseating the LCD hinge cover cable connection. If still no power and especially if the power jack seems to be damaged, then a motherboard replacement or adapter jack replacement is required (Roughly $100 either way)
