Doing a quick Google, it appears that there are some problems with the Vostro 1510 which may require you to contact Dell Tech Support.

Just tell them that it refuses to work correctly and just shuts down shortly after turning it on or just hangs and that there is a clicking sound before it shuts off. Don't tell them that you have tried changing the memory or the drive. Let them suggest this (if they do) so you can tell them that it doesn't work (giving a reasonable amount of time after they suggest it) so they aren't given any reason to deny your warranty.

From what I have seen, there has been motherboard replacements and there has is a known problem with the keyboard among other problems.

Good advice. Don't tell dell you've touched your machine. Just answer the tech's questions about what is wrong. Dell may give you the runaround, but be persistant. And if you really want to get some service, just tell them the machine was smoking. That's a safety issue, so they will replace it without any further hassles. I used to work at dell.
