I have my older Dell laptop that shut down the other day and I thought the battery had just ran all the way out, plugged it in left it to charge and when I went back it would not power up at all. My son's new laptop had this issue and the tech support had me press and F key repeatly and I think either hold down the power button or press it and let go? I wanted to try this with my laptop but can not remember what F key or the trick with the power button. Help please, hoping it's not gone had current work and family pictures on it.

Hi DELL-AMOGH G,
My laptop wont startup. after i was removing the dust from the fan, after assembling it back, i pressed the power button and nothing happen. i did try the 20s press, fn + power, nothing happen. when i connect it with the adapter, i can see the battery is charging. it just wont start. Mine is vostro 3400.
I am having the same problem ...I am using dell XPS laptop . is there any way to force start the laptop. as its not booting .. the light in the power button is flashing once and then going away ... its happening for a long time . please help
If you do all of this and it still will not start ,the dvd light flashes, the 3 lights flicker vwer weak and it quits over and over. You have to tear it down to the point where you can split the lid and unplug the lithium ion battery, mine was lower left next to the card reader...No main battery, no power cord, Unplug the little lead that goes to the board for a minute......., plug it back in...... It is the only way to truly clear the board. Its a lot of screws but if I had listened to the guy that said it’s a brick Id be out a lot of dough
