Will not power on.
My Dell Studio 14z sat dormant for 5-6 months with the battery connected. The battery is now dead, but the system used to power on without the battery and now it will not power on at all. I have tried removing the battery and power cord and pressing the power button for 30 seconds. I took the unit apart and did some basic continuity checking of connections and didn't see anything amiss. Has anybody resolved a situation like this? Or do I just need to give up on the laptop?
I have also tried several power bricks and none of them power up the system. They work fine on another dell laptop, though.
Is this a good question?
