Hi Phill,

First, I want to thank you for the help.
We tried some new things I wouldnt have on my own, so I've learned.

Second, we will now never know the culprit.
I have lost my test subject due to the recent hurricane, so no further experimentation will be possible :(


I'm sure I'll be back as my family uses me for the "Family Geek" so they dont have to depend on the parts changers at Best buy or other half assed "computer experts"
Thanks again and an apology to anyone who was following this thread looking for a resolution to your problem. Blame it on Isaac 8/28/12.



Take care.

Hello everyone i need help with a Dell Inspiron 1525
 
i work for a local collage and they use the laptop on a cart we had got a ticket about a week ago saying that the laptop will not turn on. after looking at the laptop and trying a few steps on my own like taking the batter out and hold down the power button for 30 secs. this has got me no where when i hit the power button all i get is the charging light and power light come on. i do hear a fan come on and theirs a few flashes of light that come from the keyboard for caps lock and num lock. dose  anyone have any ideas on how i can get this laptop working again or whats wrong with the laptop

Please do not post inside another members topic, your computer issue/s may appear to be the same but be completely different + your request for assistance may be overlooked as staff and members will check a topic that has yet to receive a reply but they may not if it appears that assistance has already been offered to the OP, start your own topic and we will be happy to help you there.
