    Hello guys.

    I have a problem with my Dell inspiron N7010.
    When I want to turn it on, it doesn’t work.

    When I push the power button, the led power turns on for a second then the led battery blinks once.
    I tried to find the “led code” on internet to diagnose, but I didn’t find for this model.

    I have already tried a CMOS, new charger. I took off the memory and no sound at start up, even without the bios battery no sound
    I disassembled the laptop and tried the power plug. It looks fine.

    I don’t know what to do, if you have some advise to tell me

    Best regards.

    I tried another CPU, and it doesn’t work.
    It will be very helpful (I think) to find the led code, but on dell website i didn’t find it
