Hey there Gabriel,

What solution are you talking about? I've read your post, but there's nothing mention as a solution. Please, provide more information about the steps you have performed regarding the troubleshooting of the problem with your laptop.
What do you mean by “doesn't turn on”? The lappy doesn't turn on at all or it's just the black display that you see and the HDD and/or the fan are spinning. Please, come back to the topic with more information.

I don't really know what a CMOS battery is , you would rather send me a video so I can learn what s it and how to do it cause I'm not an excellent in computer plus English it's not language, so I'm sorry

I'm sorry that I didn't mention what I tried to do as a solution
So,I've tried these following step :1) Unplug the power cord --> Remove the battery --> Hold the power button for 60 seconds --> Connect the power supply then try to switch ON the laptop and later..
So the laptop doesn't turn on t all itjust shows the light when I press the power button. My laptop is an Dell inspiron 15 3000 .
Thanks in advance for your help

Hi again,

I have an idea – why not resetting the BIOS? If you havent, I could tell you how to do it. You could 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.

Let me know how it goes.
