Have a Dell E1505 that will not power up. The AC adapter will indicate a solid green light if not connected to the computer, however once plugged into the computer the light on the adapter goes out, and the computer will not power up. Replaced AC adapter but problem did not clear. Replaced battery next, but no power still. Have also removed battery under the keyboard in an effort to reset system. Has anyone dealt with this problem before?

Yes, I have experienced this problem before with my XPS M1330, I had to return it to Dell tech. support and they had to replace the motherboard. My next laptop will definitely not be a dell...
