    Laptops do retain settings when the battery is installed, even after they are powered down. On a Dell Inspiron 1545 I use to have, all of the USB ports quit working after a Nook tablet tried to charge from them. I tried everything, and thought something had burned out the USB hardware. Nothing seemed to work to get the USB ports to work. As a last resort, I removed the battery for about 15 minutes, then re-installed it and re-booted. My USB ports were working fine again. The battery power must have made the laptop retain some setting that disabled the USB ports.
    USB ports have a failsafe crowbar circuit that will disable the port if too much current is drawn. To reset the circuit you have to remove all power. I've had to do it on my desktop PC. I power down, unplug the power supply from the wall, and then press the case power button. On a laptop, you have the extra step of removing the battery. Then plug it back in and power up.

If I go to try to turn it on, the lights in the bottom of the laptop flash for a couple of seconds, but it never turns on. I am okay with wiping the computer if I can get my files on an external hard drive, don't want to redownload them steam files. Please help.
    Does the laptop POST? Can you access the BIOS? One way to recover the files is to remove the drive a slave it in a desktop PC. Or plug it into an external enclosure. There are SATA to USB adapters to do it too.

    The computer literally doesn't turn on. I can push the power button and a ding noise comes from the computer, but the screen never turns on

    Sounds like time for the repair shop or pull the hard drive and RAM and take to the recycling center.

    it takes five minutes to remove and reseat the ram in most laptops ,as I suggested a few post back ,its worth a try ,

    at least you get a ding noise ,I have a 4 year old sony viao here that only lights the power button for a second ,not I tried makes it work ,and I completely took it apart and check it out cleaned everything dirty , cleaned and reapplied cpu and video chip heat sinc past ,still nothing .so it will likely go in my pile of no-go laptops

    A ding or a beep? A single beep is usually the signal that a PC has completed the POST and is trying to load the OS? Is the hard drive activity LED blinking? Do you have another monitor to try connecting to it?

    I wish I would of seen your comment earlier, because I removed and put back in the ram sticks and it turned on, but BSODed immediately and now the beep doesn't even happen. The only light I get is that it is charging.

    Unplug the power pack, remove the battery, press the power button. Plug the power pack back in and press the power button and see what happens. No beeps sounds like it isn't even trying to turn on. A failed post will usually give you a BIOS beep code, a series of long and short beeps. The code, example 3 long 1 short can be looked up to tell what hardware may have failed. No beeps is about as bad as it gets. In my experience anyway.
