RE: Dell Vostro 5470 Power On button is Not Working

Hi Charles,

Is the power button mechanically functional or is it stuck? Does this happen on every instance you power on the system? Does this happen only on cold boot?

If the power button is mechanically functional, then try a BIOS update -

Force the BIOS flash if required -

If the button is not functional, then replace the palmrest.

If nothing works, then I would suspect a motherboard fault. 

If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -

You could also order the parts here - 

Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Let us know if you have any other queries.
