dell laptop won't turn on

*this has happened 3-4x on the same laptop and it suddenly turns on after several days of not working, currently happening again.

Hi I am experiencing a major problem with my insparon laptop. When I press the power button the battery and charging light flash once and the computer makes a clicking noise. I used it yesterday morning and it was working fine, i had no error messages when it was running and it shut down like normal. I tried to use it last night and it just wouldn't turn on.

Clicking noice is not good. Time to call Dell or the shop and arrange for a repair.
