Default Computer wont turn on - 04-14-2010, 04:16 PM

I am having a problem getting my computer to turn on. If I remove the battery, plug it back in and hit the power button the light flashes red. If I then plug it in it will turn on and get to the windows splash screen then just shut off.

I tried to run diagnostics but as soon as I selected the option the computer turned off.

The only way to get it to try and boot is to pull the battery, put it back in. I tried to plug it with no battery installed and it doesn't do anything.

Any thoughts before I spend the next 5 hours of my life with Dell.

If you've never taken your machine apart, and have a warranty... I recommend you call tech support. It's possible that your ac charger (is dead or dieing or isnt plugged into a good outlet and) hasnt charged your battery and just shuts off. Other than that, "I gots nuthin".
