Precision Laptop Wont Boot - Power Cuts Out!

  • Hi, my Precision Laptop will not power on - when I hit power button it looks like it is ok as it starts to boot but then power cuts off and lights go out after about 5 secs. 

    I have tried charging battery / running on AC Power alone with battery out etc but it gives same result every time... 

     

    Has anyone any ideas? 

     

    Thanks!

  • What model is it?

    How far does it get before it shuts down? Do you see the Dell logo? Are you able to access system setup/boot menu?
