Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming - No Power


I've been having an issue with my laptop powering on, the power light stays lit for aprox 10-15 seconds and then turns off, nothing boots (screen black, no sound from fans etc).

I've tried removing the battery and removing the kinetic energy i believe (I've been reading around forums). I've tried booting with and without battery being installed and i've also removed the hard-drive.

Does anyone else have any other suggestions, i've read that removing the RAM could help, but it seems to be securely fastened in behind something.

Usually a back to the repair depot issue.

I take it the charger is good so time to check that warranty. Many are still in warranty in that model line.

Re: laptop

UX = User experience? That's commonly used with "design" (like sketching wireframes), not with "development".

I'd go for an current I7 laptop with an SSD for the OS and work files (possible a HDD for storage), and enough RAM (8 GB is enough for most development tasks, some might do better with 16 GB).
