dell 1530 laptop has not been turned on for several months. When I tried to charge it with the ac adapter, no lights, no startup, nothing. Is it really dead. It was working fine with WIN 10 a few months ago.
Thanks for any help.
 
Try the following and see if it will turn on...

1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then, the cord is probably the issue.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.
