my dell inspiron 1150 wont boot up, it lights up the power light but nothing on screen, it waits about 10 secs then turns off.
i get no bios screen, nothing.
tried checking contacts on ram memory and tried linking to another monitor but still does the same wether battery is in or not.
any ideas anyone?
