Good Morning All,
Interested in knowing if it is worth taking a shot at restoring a 2013 Dell Inspiron 15 3531
by getting a new battery & power cord. We stopped using it awhile back when it wouldn't
power on anymore, we thought it was the power supply cord then and purchased a new
one from Dell but it didn't help when contacted to return the new cord they said that we could
ship it back and they would also take back the laptop to diagnose and assess if wanted.
We declined and decided to get an opinion from an IT friend at work who said he thought it could be
the motherboard and that would cost $200-300 so we stopped right there with it.
I just pulled the case out of a corner while cleaning my room yesterday and am trying to
make a decision before removing the hard drive. The old power cord is gone.
