Hi! I have been given a Dell Studio 1535 laptop to fix: the laptop isn't turning on. The person gave me the laptop and the charger, which was in a really bad shape. Tho I tried to power on the laptop. I was lucky, because, in a certain position, the charger would actually give current to the laptop and I managed to power it on. But, after 5 seconds, when I was in BIOS, the laptop stopped. I have moved the charger a mm. From that moment the laptop wouldn't turn on at all. I even tried with a new charger, but, besides that I worked in every position I insert it, it did nothing.

With the battery in, the laptop's charging light flashes 4 times red, and 1 time white.
Without the battery, the laptop's charging light goes on for 2 seconds, then turns off. The laptop can't be powered on in neither these situations.
What could it be? The power button? If yes, how could I power on that laptop with a PC power button?

EDIT: the new charger has 3.43A and the original one has 4.52A. Could that represent a problem?
