I recently just got a Dell Inspiron 15 5567 and it won't boot up.

Whenever I press the power button on, it makes this loud noise about the machines whirring then suddenly, no power.

I can't do a hard reset since the battery's non-removable.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello amstelece12,

While reading your post, it gives me the impression that the lights of the lappy are just blinking, is that correct? If so, then I would suggest you to check whether there is an error with the BIOS. Have you tried resetting it? If not, please try do so by pulling out the CMOS battery. You must do that after you have pulled out the battery and the power cord of the laptop. Open the lid and localize the CMOS battery which lies next to the processor and it looks like a watch battery. If you have another CMOS battery, you can replace it with that. If you don't, leave your current battery aside and wait for some minutes for the electricity to discharge. Then, plug the CMOS battery back in and the power cord. Try to boot your laptop again. 
Please, do the above mentioned steps only if your laptop is out of warranty.

Hope this helps.
