Dell Inspiron laptop not booting

February 2017



Issue


My Dell Inspiron laptop wont boot. What can be done?

Solution


You can try the hard reboot process:
1. remove the battery and power cord
2. push and hold down the power button for 45 seconds
3. restore battery and power cord
4. restart the laptop

This will reset the laptop if it had problems with hibernation.

Thanks to xpcman for this tip.
