Re: Dell Studio 540 seems to have "died"

I have found out that when I hold the power button down for a while the green LED on the back will come on.  That is why after that I can tap the power button again and it will try to start up.  So right now the green LED is off....I hold down the power button for 5 seconds and the green LED on the back comes on....I press the power button and see the DELL screen on my monitor...and hear the POST beep.....I see the Windows splash screen then the system shuts down.  Sometimes it shuts down before the Windows splash screen and sometimes even before the POST.

EDIT:  I spoke with Dell and they will not help me without charging me a fee because it's a month out of warranty.
