A couple months ago I opened my Studio xps laptop (3 years old) and immediatelythe "blue screen of death" appeared and then the screen flickered andwent black. When I press the on button the lights at the top of the keyboardflash like it's going to turn on but then flicker and the computer doesn't turnon. Nothing is wrong with the hard drive and I have been able to get all of myinformation off of it. I've tried to turn it on with the A/C plugged in withoutthe battery and the same flash happens. Also (and I'm not sure this isimportant) a friend tried turning it on with the back off to see if the fantried to start and the fan didn't move at all. The entire inside is clean and Ikeep the battery charged enough to keep it from dying forever.
Welcome to the community
Sounds like a hardware problem. When you turn it on, which of the light flashes? Did you hear any beeps? Try removing devices like hard drives and rams and turn it on. Lets see what will happen. If still doesnt work, possible motherboard problem. Dell can replace parts if its under warranty.
Feel free to add me as a friend if you need further assistance.
