Please help! I replaced my battery on Friday and charged it fully. It was working fine. Today, I got it out and went to power it on and nothing... No lights, no sound, nothing. It is doing the sane thing with or without the charger (green light on the adapter) and with or without the battery. I tried taking the battery out, holding the button for 30 secs, etc, and no help. I am not under warranty. And of course, I have an essay due in 7 hours....
Am I screwed?

:welcome: Jdlevy28

Sorry to hear that you are having computer issues.

For research purposes can you tell us the exact model number of the Dell Inspiron as there are various models and specs.

Thanks for providing the model number :thumbsup:

Can you again remove the battery, AC adaptor cord + this time the Ram also, see http://support.dell....y.htm#wp1180190 once you have done this hold down the power button for a while to dispel any static charge that may have built up in the system, reassemble the computer and see how it goes.

Couple of additional questions for you, you have recently replaced the battery, can I ask where you already having power issues and is the replacement battery a genuine Dell.

Ok, I did all of the above. I powered back on, light came on, fan came on, but so did a repetitive series of two beeps. Did I not put it together right?

Battery is not dell but didcome from a reputable source. Battery was dying for months before I replaced.

How many sticks of Ram do you have?

After disconnecting all sources of power try reseating your Ram, if you have two sticks of Ram try one at a time to begin with, let us know the results.
