Check out the reset given in the second link at #2, then the screen as per #3. If it is still the same then responses #1 and #2 (first link) suggest possible items that might need replacing. However, without examining the Inspiron it is difficult to be absolutely certain so it could be expensive just buying things in order to find out. This would need to be weighed against invoking the professional who can look at the unit and should be able to give more concrete guidance.

Most things can be repaired but it all boils down to cost.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Possibly the internal lithium battery but most likely the power supply is fried.

Is a discussion that appears to point to the power supply - or the battery. The power supply would seem to be prime suspect...

and this from an earlier post here at CN:

It appears to suggest a possible resolution - not dissimilar to one Derek often suggests for some startup prpblems (and which often works).

If you never ever see anything at all on the screen it is almost certainly a hardware fault which will need to be repaired. You could try an external monitor on it (if possible) which will tell you whether the screen itself is the culprit.
