I attempted to start up my dell this morning, and it's been a frustrating experience ever since. Each time I hit the power button, the power light and hard drive lights come on for only a couple of seconds, and then it shuts off completely. I have looked at other threads similar to this topic and have also tried some things I've read to no avail. I took the battery out and it still does the same thing when plugged directly into the wall. Your help or any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
