Hello there, I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop, roughly two and a half years old. I woke up yesterday and it wouldn't turn on. I searched the forums and google, but found no real answer to my problem. If I can't find an answer I may have to take it into somewhere on Tuesday, though I've never had to do that before. It is not the battery. I've tried taking it out to turn it on, but I haven't used it in around six months anyway. Around that time, my original power cable fried and I had to get a replacement. Due to being overseas, I had to get one that wasn't Dell, however the reccomended laptops on the back said that it would work with mine. Unfortunately it does, as in powers the laptop, but does not charge the battery in any way. A couple of weeks ago, the right hand back corner of the lid broke. I don't know how, but a small metal piece in the corner will not bend down, and forces the plastic up. I tried removing the cover and taking a look, but I don't think it's fixable as it seems to have popped out of some place and I can't get it back in. I don't know if this is cosmetic or has something to do with my laptop not turning on. Any help is much appreciated If you need any more information on my laptop, just ask and I'll post it. Pirran.
