For starters,i have looked at other forum posts on this site and used the recommendations there for this problem I have and no solution had seemed to help.
I have a dell xps m1530 laptop, about 2.5 years old. It has handled very rigorous situations, like intense gaming, needy applications, etc. My computer was working fine (sans 50% wear level on my battery) ast night and when I woke up this morning, my computer powered on, went to the disc drive check, fans on and then.... powered to a low power state where you can barely hear the fans. I did the take out battery, hold power button trick and is no better. About a year ago, my inverter wire was pinched due to me opening up my computer to do some dusting. I haven't done any dusting in a while because I am a bit paranoid now.
What could be the problem? I have tried putting new batteries into laptop, but if I have the power cord in laptop, it really shouldn't matter if battery is in or out/good or bad. Any further recommendations or solutions that may resolve my problems? The best part about this is I am full time engineering student who needs his computer all of the time! Thank you for all help in advance!
