I assume the problem started when you tried to install Win 8?
It's likely a driver issue. That can be a problem as Dell only sold that laptop with Win 7 so there won't be any Win 8 drivers available from Dell.

You may be able to hunt down the correct drivers.

For example see:
This system is not supported by Dell on Windows 8. Here is an unofficial driver set taken from other Dell systems. This may or may not be complete.

And this may help

It could be anything at this rate. Without anything to go off I'd just say to do the same things you did.

Perhaps try booting without the battery and just the PSU.
