RE: Dell Inspiron 518 00 starts to turn on and hangs

It never was directly connected to the wall. That's bad power management. And it never was connected directly ti the power strip.  But yes, I restored it to its original power configuration. It accomplished nothing.

The most likely problem based on its behavior is a loose RAM chip or a bad CMOS battery. I have yet to open my computer and explore these possibilities.
