I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. It does not turn on.
I have made sure everything was seated right. ie memory hardrive battery.
I tried using the power supply but it seams like it short circuits the power supply. The light turns off as soon as I plug it into the laptop.
The power supply does work (tested it on different laptop same model).
I ordered the dc power jack socket and going to try and replace that see if that was the problem
If that doesn't work what is the best way to test to find out what it is.
ie motherboard (what part)
