Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook ?

Laptop went completely dead

\015 Last night, my laptop was working fine. It had been on for a while, so it was working slowly, but no major problems. I shut it down normally and it seemed ok. This morning, I tried to turn it on and there's absolutely no power going to this thing. Dell recently replaced my motherboard (2 months ago) for similar problems, and it's worked great ever since. My charger cord is in working order. I thought it may be my battery, but the laptop doesn't even attempt to power on. No lights, no usual "click" when it turns on... nothing. \015\012\015\012Please help--it's finals week!\015\012\015\012-=LadyGrey=-\015

\015\012(Does the LED on the adapter go out when you plug it into the machine)?
Get in touch with Dell again as the replaced part will be under warranty.\015\012\015\012You can never tell whether a new or second hand motherboard has been fitted, as manufacturers are able to do either when they repair it, so it just may well of failed again.
