Is it still under warranty? If so call dell, they will send someone out with a replacement motherboard or other parts the next day. Now i did have a friend with the same model as yours, and he had me look at it. I checked the processor, memory, hard drive, powersuppy, capacitors resistors ect. I resat eveything in that lappy and nothing worked. Eventually I told my friend when he was infront of me that I was going to shake it like a baby (No offense to anyone). So I proceeded to shake it, sat it down, and hit the power button....IT WORKED!!! I was thinking WTF!!! It still works to this day (its been about 2 years since the shaking). But I would call dell. To retrieve your files, you can get a 2 1/2 inch harddrive converter cable, and hook it into a desktop pc. This will give you access to your files so you can back it up to an external drive or cd.
