Having problems with your Dell Precision M60 Notebook ?

Dell Precision M60 won't start up

\015 I have a Dell Precision M60, about 4 or 5 years old. This morning it won't start. When I press the Power On button nothing happens. It is plugged in, and there is a light on the power supply but there are no lights on the laptop which there usually are when power is plugged in. I have taken the battery out and tried turning it on with just the mains adapter, but no difference.\015\012Sometimes when I hold the power button in for about 5 secs the power light on the laptop flashes briefly, but nothing else happens. Any ideas?\015

AC Problems Dell Precision M60 Notebook. Battery drains then can't get AC power to work. The prong on the AC cable looks ok. I'm thinking the AC plug-in on the notebook is the problem. Problem started at the beginning of the week.
