WaqarAli091,

Shut the computer down and remove the battery. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Replace the battery, charger and turn it back on to see if that resolved the issue.

RE: My Laptop is not turning on

The LED indictor is lite up on the AC adapter? Is the light solid green or blue?

Also, check if the ID pin inside the plug or adapter port is bent, broken or damaged.

RE: My Laptop is not turning on

This is almost certainly a mainboard going bad -- probably a bad cold solder joint somewhere.  It may work for a while but it's likely that someday soon, no amount of fiddling will get it to boot. If the system is in warranty, call Dell -- if it's out of warranty, you're likely to find the cost of replacing a board will be more than 50% of the initial cost of the system - carefully consider your options (a new system might be a better idea).
