Inspiron 8000 kills AC adapter - laptop will not power on

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Johnathon Aaron Steel, Mar 10, 2005.

  1. I have a Inspiron 8000 laptop. I have been doing some work to it of
    late and all of a sudden it won't power on. I figured "hey the
    battery's" so I swapped out and still same thing. Not even when it is
    plugged in will it work. Any suggestions.

    Well, now..."work on it"..."won't power on"... This is indicative of
    working on it with the battery installed? You might have shorted the
    main fuse if there was either the battery or AC adapter plugged in. One
    of those little screws gets loose and creates havoc.
