Does it try to start and then fail? "The battery light" is that located on the computer? Or is this light somewhere else? | Report abuse ktownmike August 4, 2012 1:42:04 AM 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? | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows XP>Cannot get computer to turn on even though i got a new battery> Related ressources: ForumSystem Randomly Loses Power ( even though connected to UPS) ForumGot my new system, not completely though !
