I work for a small nonprofit that has recently received a donation of Dell laptops. Most of them are in fine working order, but I'm having a problem with a few of them. I hook them up to the AC adaptor and the battery icon glows green, but when I press the power button, nothing happens. For some of them, sometimes the power turns on for a few seconds, but it then shuts off. None of these computers have operating systems yet (I'm in the process of installing Windows 2000).
Any suggestions? Maybe these laptops are just duds, but I don't want to give up on them yet.
Thanks so much for your help!
