My Dell Inspiron N1510 was working fine until one day when i went to start it up, it refused to do anything. Nothing appears on the screen, no lights, no sounds, just as if i hadn't pushed the power button at all!

I've tried taking the battery out and holding the power button for thirty seconds before trying again to power it up with no change.

The green light on the power brick is on steady so i wouldn't think that would be the problem.

I wish i had a friend with a similar model so i could try a different battery but that's not an option.

Any relevant suggestions will be welcome! Thank you.

What if you take the battery out, and plug in the power brick?
