    I have a dell inspiron 1521 , when i tried to turn it on i heard the fan start then go off. The screen is blank and i have tried new charger and with and without battery still the same. Im told it will be the motherboard and costs too much so bin the laptop. How can i find out what is causing the problem without taking to a shop and being charged for something that is no good. I have tried removing hard drive/graphics card /cd rom/ battery and putting them back but still no joy can anyone help me please Samantha

    If possible remove the motherboard and carefully examine it. See if there are any leaky capacitor or burnt components.
