Some of the older ones have a little plastic stick that goes down and shuts off the screen when you close the lid.   Sometimes that little stick gets jammed and doesn't come up when you open the lid.. and then it will make the thing blink funny.   

But I doubt it.\

:uhh

I would try removing the battery and unplugging it while it's on.  Then put the  battrie back in and boot it up again.

I just got a class-action lawsuit notice in the mail the other day. Something about Dell screwing people on the taxes on their purchases. Not sure if it's only CA sales tax but if you bought a Dell from 2001 to 2008 you should look into it. I think I'd only be due $23.something so I'm not going to bother.

Your battery is fried. Get a new one or pony up for a new laptop....all depends on what you need it for. You can get a new lapper with an i7 core for under $500. I'd go ASUS. Stay away from Dell and H/P
