Alienware 15 r3 wont turn on no lights

Yesterday I was plugging in my Kinect (it has an adapter) to my AW 15 R3 and the light on the adapter went dim and back so I went to check on the computer and it was shut off and now I cant turn it on no leds or anything just dead.

Hi @JonathanC8,

You can try a power drain: unplug every external device (including the AC Adapter), open the bottom cover and disconnect the battery cable. Then hold the power button for around a minute to drain all the power out. You can use this video as reference on how to disconnect the battery cable.
