ive tried to boot from F12 - alas after a few seconds it goes to black screen with no activity from the laptop
cd leads me nowhere. theres something preventing any hard drive activity to take any thing further

Good point Doc,rusalka, if you shine a flashlight onto the screen when its 1st powered on can you see anything? if you can that means that the CCl or the inverter has gone , if not then your GFX card has expired

rusalka, Even with no HDD attached to your motherboard ,you should still be able to boot to a CD/DVD this is pointing towards a mobo malfunction

With the power OFF, would you be comfortable opening the HD bay & removing the HD. Then with it out try powering ON with a bootable DISC in the DVD/CD drive.

Ok rusalka , download the service manual from here Manuals and Documents for Inspiron 1546 | Dell US this will explain how to take the Hdd out , a mobo malfunction is just my way of saying the mobo may be on its way out ,dying
