Laptop not turning on


I have Dell Inspiron 15 - 3521,

The problem is, it's not turning on, no beep from any part of the computer.

However, it shows the charging light when connected to the charger.

I have tried the draining out battery by pressing power button for 30 seconds trick.

The result is still the same.

It's not turning on.

Plz assist.

RE: Laptop not turning on

Verify that the LED on the AC adapter is ON before you plug in the system end.  If it's not, replace the adapter.

Unplug the system and disconnect the battery.  Hold the power button for 30 sec.  Remove and reinstall both memory modules.  Leave the battery disconnected.  If the system will start up on AC only, but won't with the battery installed, the battery is bad -- replace it.

If it still won't power up, the mainboard is bad.  Replace the system board.
