My dell Inspiron 6000 laptop won't power up, i press the power button, and after 4 seconds the power cuts, no fan but i can hear the hard drive. Also the dvd drive light lights for about 1/4 of a second then the power cuts, have tried taking out cmos battery for 19 hours, 8 of which the power button was down.

I was going to take it to a repair store but i really would like to try and fix it myself first, then if i could, i would not have to spend more money on getting it repaired,

Hello... the power supply need to be tested somehow... Like I said the "Goodwills" have Computer Parts and like 10's of these things there for $5... check your Local Goodwills listings for "computer re-cycling center" B )

the PS is the next thing to check hint hint only $5?

Hello... there are a billion PS in the world... each one is different... BUT the LABEL on them have all the info you need to find the same "Voltage" 'current" ratings, these things should match & have the same kind of connector. B /
That is my DIY recommendation. B /
