 I just cleaned my 5 year old 1440 and when it turned on, it just powered itself off after about 3-4 seconds. I followed the dell instructions in tacking it all apart and putting it back together, then this.  It was working (slowly, running hot) before this.  I have tried hard reset, Dells Post recovery won't work either, nothing shows up.   I have reseated ram, replaced ram, set a known good ram in top then bottom receptacle individually.  I have tried two different cpu's, removed hard drive and everything else to test it. I am all out of ideas, can anyone help?  I have 20 plus years working with these types of problems and I am stumped.
