If your Dell Inspiron laptop computer won't turn on no matter how many times you press the "Power" button, its motherboard is likely holding an excess electrical charge. This will keep the laptop from turning on even if it is plugged into a wall outlet or if the battery is fully charged. To fix this issue, you will need to dispel the extra electrical charge from the Inspiron. This also involves the "Power" button.
