Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1700 Notebook ?

Dell Vostro 1000 won't turn on/no power at all

\015 I have a dell vostro 1000 that will not turn on at all. I got a new power cord and still nothing called dell they said "SORRY no Warrentee"\015\012\015\012I just got a Dell Vostro 1700 as mail order. tried to turn it on and the little lights for power and bluetooth flicker but do not come on. It is plugged in for the 1st time right now with the equipment that came with it. I ordered it from UK and am worried that either it's broken..... or there was some kind of current electrical difference between UK and US that I'm clueless about and don't have equipment needed to run computer in the states. Would there possibly be a voltage difference or something? How about the cold, the laptop body is definitely colder than normal from shipping-- could that do it?\015

My problem was similar!
\015\012 I would press the on button, little power light came on, could hear 2 \015\012sort'a clicks (like it was trying to start up), then nothing.... A\015\012black screen. Power showing on; but just not booting up.
\015\012 I have read quite a few people out there having the same problem,\015\012with few solutions. And like them, I tried all the usual methods plus a\015\012few "let's see if THIS makes it work" methods!
\015\012 Now let me state something important here: My computer DID boot up\015\012after turning the system (read; pressing the power button every 10-15\015\012seconds like a trained chicken) on and off between "10 and 30+" tries!!\015\012
\015\012So.....that told me, in lay-man's terms, my puter was just act'n plain goofy!
\015\012 Telling myself I can't go through this test of patience EVERYtime I\015\012want to use this thing, I stumbled on a cure for my problem!!
\015\012 What I did was; unplugged the power, let the battery run down (to the\015\012point where my laptop quit on its own) [btw, you should be sure to only\015\012have the desktop showing and not have any applications running to\015\012minimize problems!]
\015\012I then plugged it in, and turned it on. To my amazement, it booted on the first try!
\015\012If you have tried all the normal methods of fixing your computer and it\015\012still will not work right; you might want to give this a try as a\015\012near-to-last resort!
\015\012 I sincerely hope this works for any one out there who is having this\015\012problem when it takes multiple attempts to get your system to boot!
\015\012This occurred on a Vostro 1000, running Vista (home edition)

Other parts of the world do use different current settings. However, if your AC adapter has the correct US plug and the adapter itself says "Input = 100-240V 50-60 hz it should be fine. Temperature should make no difference. If this is a new mail order I would suspect it getting damaged in transit.
