A friend asked me to look at their Dell Inspiron 1525 (Vista OS) because it's not starting up. Here's what happens. When you press the power button, a black screen flashes with the Dell Logo. Then immediately the laptop powers back off.
The 'on' button remains lit but the fans aren't running and the screen is black. I've checked the battery and power cord. I'd really like to fix this device for my friend. Any suggestions on what to do?
Thank you in advance.
