Dell Inspiron laptop not booting

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.
