    Can you give us the exact model of the laptop - also, does the power pack (that brick you plug it into to charge it) have a light on it to say that it is working (some model don't have this light). Also, how OLD is the laptop?

    on that brick when you plucg it into a socket it goes blue and would stay on before when i plugged it into the laptop but since the laptop broke anytime i go to plug it into the laptop the blue light goes off the laptop is just over a year old. its a Dell Inspiron 15 (1545)

    When you unplug the brick from the laptop, does the blue light come back on?

    Also (and this might sound strange) does the laptop give off any slightly pungent oder near where the jack plugs in?

    Dell Inspiron won't turn on?
    That's its way of telling you to buy a better PC.

    We've had three Inspirons here. Junk. Junk. And junk.

    We replaced those with 2 HPs. So far, so good.
