I have a Dell 5000e laptop that I purchased used off eBay. It was pretty much a stripped down laptop. I bought a new Dell power supply (correct PA-6 model) for the laptop and 128 MByte RAM to see if it would work or not.
When I turn on the laptop, the green power light on the laptop lights up. The fan starts spinning and then after a second or two, the fan stops and nothing else happens. The green power light is still lit up on the laptop.
Pressing the power switch has no effect after it shuts down. I have to unplug the laptop, then plug it back in again for the power switch to work again.
I took the laptop apart and reseated everything. It was clean inside and did not see anything out of the ordinary with it.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance...
