  1. Does any light on the computer come on at any time when you try to start it?? or is it totally dead?
    Does it try to start and then fail?

    "The battery light" is that located on the computer? Or is this light somewhere else?
  2. Dell is a little anal retentive about power supplies and batteries, I assume you have the original power supply, and the computer will not boot even with the battery removed?
