LAPTOP WON'T POWER UP

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I have a Dell XPS M1710 Model No:  PP05XB and it wouldn't boot up so I replaced the battery, now when I put in the new battery in the battery light was flashing so I let it charge for a few hours. Now when I try to power up it doesn't do anything. The power light goes on for about 10 seconds than back to a flashing battery light. I have reset the hard drive. I am not sure what to do next before I trash it?
