    Okay have you tried:

    - Testing your AC adapter with a multimeter

    - Removing the battery and AC adapter and holding down the power button for 30 seconds

    After that you could have an issue with the power circuitry with your motherboard or it could be genuinely defective. Is it still under Dell warranty?
