Hi
I have Dell Vostro 1310 Laptop. My laptop failed to boot today when i pressed the power button. The power light came up for 1-2 seconds and then laptop turned off. Neither fan nor HDD nor processor light came up. I have checked the power supply and found no problem with it. What is the problem? Can somebody help please?

Hi vinidhi :) sorry to hear you are having this issue, is the laptop still under warranty?
Things you can try;
1: Remove the power lead and battery and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and try to boot up, if no luck;
2: Remove the battery, attach the AC power adapter, attempt to boot up, if no luck;
3: Remove the Ram, hold down the power button for 30 seconds, attach the power, attempt to boot up (it will not without the Ram)if the laptop does switch on power down and insert 1 stick of Ram (if you have 2) and attempt to boot up.
Let us know how the above tests work out, it depends on the test results what advice someone will give you next.

Hi
I tried all of the above but no success.
Today when I pressed and hold the power button with Fn key the CAPS/SCROLL Lock light came up and NUM Lock light blinking with Fan continuously running. When I tried to switch it off it won't. Then I had to cut off the power supply and remove the battery. Why this thing happened?
