    Hi, i have a Dell inspiron laptop that wont start. the battery light flickers constantly (red in colour), and the screen doesnt light up, i hear the fan running for a few seconds and then its all quiet. :confused: powering it without the battery only lights up the power and num lock indicators with nothing on the screen. i tried changing the battery and the power pack. i suspect something on the Motherboard is fried, please help. :(
