I am having trouble turning on my Laptop "Dell Inspiron PP07L". I push the power button and I get a flashing power LED and no other activity. So, I then plugged in the Ac adapter to see if the battery was completely dead but still got the same blinking LED. Could it be that my battery has taken it's last charge? Or is this the culmination of a whole other problem consistent with this particular model from Dell? The following list is the information in particular to the Laptop and the AC adapter. I will let you know that I have recently purchased the AC adapter due to the fact that my original adapter is lost. Must have left it somewhere but that neither here nor there. On that note I haven't turned on my Laptop in 2 years let alone use it but because I needed an old Laptop to load Linux into well you get the picture. ;
