Inspiron 9300 will not turn on

This question is answered

I have an inspiron 9300 that will not turn on.  I press the power button, the green power led comes on and a few seconds later it shuts off.  If I hold the power button, it cycles the light turning on for a few seconds the shutting off for a second and turning back on for a few seconds.  I've pulled the memory, battery, HD and re-inserted and nothing seems to work.  What are somethings that I can look for?  I really need to get this back up a going.  Thanks!

  • They're about the only real, discrete components on the system board (i.e., they're the only replaceable parts).  Just about everything else is handled by a highly integrated chip - if one of those is bad, or there's a bad solder joint somewhere, you're going to wind up replacing the board anyway, as it will be just about impossible to find and repair.
