Hello, my laptop won't turn on. I have a dell inspiron N5110. It was working fine in the morning. When I tried to turn it on the same night, the power button blinked and then went off. I've tried the power off battery out hold the power button down thing it won't work. The charger is working fine, when I plug it in the battery light comes on, then when I try to press the power button the battery light turns off as I'm pressing it. Please help! But if I do take it to the shop will my data be safe? Or will I lose everything?
It's possible that your Motherboard (MB) or hard drive has failed and you will need to buy a new laptop. New laptops cost less than new a Motherboard. If the problem is with the hard drive then you have lost your data. If it's a MB problem then perhaps you can convert the hard drive to a USB external drive for a replacement PC.
From your post I understand the computer won't show anything on the screen and the power button blinks, you have tried draining the Flea Power by pressing and holding the power button while the power sources were disconnected but that didn't make any difference.
Do you observe any symptoms such as beep codes or any other lights on the machine such as Hard Drive Status Light, Battery Status Light, etc.? If so, what is the number of beeps or color and state of the lights? What happens when you try to power on the computer using Fn + Power Button? If possible try to re-seat the memory modules in the computer. Refer to the service manual of the laptop for steps on how to re-seat the memory modules. If you are not comfortable removing the memory modules yourself, please seek a technician's help.
