Hi,

I have a dell precision machine. Today it suddenly got shutdown as if it was unplugged from all the juice (battery+ac adapter)

I tried to restart it quite few times but i won't start. I removed the battery and tried to use only AC Adapter. When i plug ac adapter it's led and power button led blinks for a second... that is the only response i am getting from the system.

I have checked the adapter is giving the mentioned voltage. What could be the issue here?
I have also tried four RAMs on 2 slots one by one... but of no use.
Kindly guide how can i troubleshoot it.


Regards

Hi,

Upon opening up the laptop i figured that the power cable coming out of power button that connects to mother board was somewhat loosened... upon plugging it properly i was able to start my system.
