My Dell laptop makes a clicking sound when I try to turn it

Customer Question

My Dell laptop makes a clicking sound when I try to turn it on, and it will not turn on. I have to take out the battery and sometimes when I put the battery back in the computer, the computer will start up.

Can you provide me with the model of your dell laptop???

Also, for starters, try removing the battery altogether and starting the computer on DC/AC power only.

See if you are able to start with consistency in that manner?

That will get us started in the right direction.
