I am facing a similar problem with 5160 and my power button will not power up the laptop. I presses the shift key, it got powered up (offcourse only fan started but the screen is black)
Try pressing shift key to power up.

The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.

check if your systemboar power is on or not, and also check if the fan is spinning or not. If not try and reset your processor.

it could be the connection for the battery is damaged in some way, my advice would to take it to a repair shop, let the pro's have a look, power problems should always be dealt with by someone qualified, for you own protection. good luck with it.

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps
