Dell Inspiron 3543/3541 won't power on, led light flashing, no beeps


Feb 23, 2017
I have a Dell Inspiron 3542. All the sudden about a week ago it wouldn't turn on. Then it's like I could get it to turn on if I sorta bent or applied pressure to it, but if I moved it or anything it would seize up and freeze.. if I couldn't/can't get it to turn on or boot up, the front led light blinks. Sometimes I got lucky and it would turn on with one of the blinks.. no beeps.. if I plug in the charger, the led light stays lit saying it's charging like it's suppose to. I've tried taking the battery out and holding the power button for 30 seconds and I've tried plugging the charger in without the battery, nothing. This came out of no where, please help!
