My external Power Brick 330W's LED lights up when connected to power source but turns off once connected to the PC. The PC will not boot up and not even fan or slide lights lighted. Tested with another Brick and still the same results. Any suggestions?

Does the brick get hot when plugged into the X51?
Are they genuine Dell/AW power bricks?
Were they any symptoms leading up to this?

The fact that you tried another brick with the same result leads me to believe there is something wrong with the X51 internals.

Yes, the brick came with the system. As there was no sign of any boot sequence, i suspect that the power board may be the issue... but cannot be sure. It will be a waste of money to order a replacement part only to find out the issue was further down the line. :(

Could you return the part if that doesn't fix it?
