I usually leave the computer on, reboot maybe once a week for good measure. Well, one day I woke up to black screen and noticed it was off. I tried to turn it on and the power button blinked a couple times and... nothing! That was it!! Now it won't even do that!!!
Please try the steps below and restart the system once again.
1. Take out all the external connections from the back of the display.
2. Disconnect the power cable (AC adapter)
3. Press and hold the power on button for 10-15 seconds.
4. Connect the power cable and other peripherals and try to switch on the system
If you are still unable to power it up please check if there are any lights on the system.
I am adding you as a friend; please accept my friend request and send me a personal message with the system Service Tag so that I can check the system warranty details and help you with the issue.
Please reply if you have any questions.

Your Inspiron One 19 sold with either of these internal power supplies. Both will work -H109R 130w Power Supply http://www.impactcomputers.com/h109r.htmlY664P 130w Power Supply http://www.impactcomputers.com/y664p.html
So the culprit could be either your internal power supply or the internal 3-V CR2032 lithium coin cell battery. To remove and replace the coin cell battery is pretty intensive. Once you buy the a replacement 3-V CR2032 lithium coin cell battery locally (walmart, radio shack), you might need to bring the system and the battery to a local PC repair store and have them swap out the battery or the purchased power supply. They will need the link below to the Service Manual. I would first try to change out the coin cell battery and see if it fixes the issue before buying the power supply.Manual = http://dell.to/Oy45Ua
Hello, I am having the same problem I replaced the battery, the power light turned on for a second then it went out. I then replaced the power supply and the battery again and still no power, is there a fuse or surge protector after the power supply on the board that I need to change or do you have any suggestions on what to do next.
