do you get anything else? beep code or something? try taking the battery out and plugging in the mains and seeing if it will turn on. if not then it sounds like a call to Dell support unless you want to start taking a screwdriver to it...

Try these:

- Reseat memory and hard drive
- Use only AC adapter (as noted above)
- Test battery using built-in LED testing on battery see if any issue
