I tried your suggestions, with and without battery/ac adapter and the laptop still will not work. The power light stays on but still have no picture.
Hello, and welcome to Geeks to go !
Your problem describes what sounds like a power issue. Have you tried to take the battery out and just use the AC Adapter? Or if there is any life in the battery try it with just the battery. This is a common problem with laptops, this model included. Is the Motherboard connection where the AC Adapter plugs into goes bad. The lights you describe seem to indicate a short circuit too, where they light up briefly then suddenly go out.
When you say a Manufactures reboot. I think you mean a factory restore to original settings like it was new, using the supplied recovery disks, if no disks came with it then Dell may have a recovery Partition located on the hard drive. Before considering that you need to confirm where the power issue is, AC Adapter, Motherboard etc. Most cases a Laptop needs to be taken in as they are difficult to work on.
