Hello,

My Dell Inspiron 13-7352 won't turn on; I was using it when there was power outage and I totally drained the battery and it went off automatically, after the power came back I charged it the whole night but it still totally doesn't turn on. I tried to long-press the power button but nothing happens. I am 99% sure that the reason was using it on battery until the whole charge was gone. Please help!

My Dell did the same thing. I followed the above instructions to remove the battery and then put it right back in. Plugged into power and wa-la...it powered up. So simple. Thanks.
