Hi Richard,

I recommend you to remove battery and disconnect power cable. Hold the power button for 20 seconds and reconnect power cable. Try to boot again. Are you able to enter BIOS menu? If not, contact the seller and ask for guidance. You laptop is under warranty, right? There may be a hardware problem and if you try to fix it by yourself you most probably will void warranty.

Hope this helps

Thank you

Thank you for your recommendations, however, it still is not working. I will call Dell to find out what they think it could be.
I appreciate your speedy response. Thank you again. Richard Kiefer
