Hello
I have a Dell inspiring M5030. When I insert the a.c. adaptor and press the power bottom the power led on the adaptor goes off and the laptop won't turn on. HOWEVER when I unplug the the a.c. adaptor from the laptop the power led on the adaptor comes on. Please, help me out.

Have you tested with a different power supply?

This could be a motherboard problem or a power supply problem.

It appears that you have a hardware problem with the laptop. Often the only solution for laptop problems is a motherboard replacement. This often costs move than a new laptop.

Good Luck
