Hey guys,
I have a Dell Latitude D830 that doesn't turn on. When plugged into the mains, the charge light flashes at me, then I press the power button, and nothing happens , at all !!!
It's not the charger and i'm pretty sure the power socket is fine.
I've stripped it down and tried re-sitting everything.
Is there something I've missed ??

Hello 7slaterj;

With the battery out will it run on AC mains?

Does anything at all happen when you press the power on button besides what you mentioned?

A trip to the laptop repair shop is a better idea that borrowing a ammeter.

I couldn't tell you how to begin. Or if any of the results were good or not.
I suppose you could see if Google turns up anything.
