I have a dell inspiron 11 3000 series, and I love it! It is hard to use a computer without touch screen. I have had some issues after version 10 came on board. Missing files was the biggy. Right now my problem is that the computer will not turn on. Even with a full charge. A friend told me to check if the wires on the hard drive came loose. I can't see how to open the case to check it out. If anyone has a suggestion I am capable to try please send it. Thanks

I can not remove the battery because i don't know the proper procedure to open the case. I removed all the screws, but could not lift the cover off. My father always told me, "never force anything" so I only applied minimal force. Can anyone help me with this situation?

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck
