Q: uRGENT!

i HAVE A DELL SPIRON 1440 AND IT DOESN’T POWER UP (obviously no display) but when plugged in to a wall outlet you can hear the fan nd still no display. M thinking the battery is defective but i want to make sure i replace the right part.

    I doubt it’s the battery. A laptop can normally boot just fine when it is plugged in and doesn’t have a battery connected.

    You’ll need to take the laptop to someone for service or contact Dell for assistance. I can’t offer much help without taking the laptop apart myself.
