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

I tried your method and as soon as I connect the power supply to the dell inspiron laptop, the green light on the power supply goes. And the laptop still won't power up with power button. Any help?
I've had the same problem. Replaced the battery with a new one and it has worked fine for about a week. Worked fine 3 hrs ago now nothing. I tried above technique and it didn't work for me. If I take the battery out and leave plugged in there is no light or signs of life.
