re check the computer is plugged in, and see if u can reset the circiut breaker on the power supply, the re try tuning the computer power switch button on. if it still wont turn on then take it to a repair facility for repair and explain to them EXACTLY , How I told you this, and have them check the computer.
If you have a Yellow light on power supply, chances are you have blown the power supply. Even with a PC unplugged in a Bad Storm, I have seen many PC's and Laptops with Supplies shoot. If you have a little computer savvy, the best thing to do is, 1. Disconnect power. 2. Open unit. 3. Disconnect all Devices from supply. 4. Disconnect 20 04 24 pin power supply connector to mother board. 5. If you have other connectors such as 4-pin 24 Volt acc. you can disconnect that as well. 6. Now plug in the supply. Note... Some supply's have a reset located in the rear of the supply, where it makes its input ( A/C connection. ) If so try the reset. Some supply's also light up or have a service light when sensing input power, some do not. 7. If all looks good and no sparks or flames, re-connect the mother board connection, (only) Try to power on computer. Note..... If you still have the Yellow light, Replace the supply. In some cases, the power supply sees a fault and fold back to a protection mode. The supply has several Capacitors in which hold a charge and when connected to the mother board retain that charge. Disconnecting the Mother Board 20- 24 pin connector will allow this charge to dissipate. If all works after reconnecting supply, Your Good To Go.!!! If not, you may need another Power supply. Or may have done other damage. Hope all works out for you. Try it, it may work... Readers, please rate your Technician Thank you. John Ray email@example.com
TRY ANOTHER RAM IF THIS DOES NOT WORKS
TRY RESETTING THE BIOS CONFIGURATION FROM THE JUMPER ON THE MOTHERBOARD
OR ELSE THE MOTHERBOARD NEEDS A REPAIR IF IT FALLS UNDER WARRANTY PERIOD
TAKE IT TO THE SERVICE CENTER OR ELSE BUYING A NEW ONE IS THE BETTER OPTION
Sorry I lost my password. This is a common problem with the 610 and other laptops. This repair is not for a Novice. Please get the maintance manual from dell go to dell support its free and know the disassembly procedures for tearing your laptop apart. Remove the bezel on top of your keyboard. The start button is on a small pc board. The problem is on the connector on the bottom of this board that commects to the Mother board of your computer. Remove all external, and plug in devices to your laptop. including the battery. After removing the keyboard, the top plastic cover, the start pc board, ect. you can see the connector from the start board that connects to the mother board. Look carefully and gently see if this connector is loose. The mother board connector is supported by 2 silver looking braces on each end. gently see if they are loose. I bet that one end has broken loose from the mother board. re solder the loose end to the mother board. be careful not to damage anything as I said this is not for the novice. (with the laptop in pieces put the startup pc board back in, temporairly put the battery in and push the start button. If the led's glow, this is where the problem is. While your laptop is apart check for dust ect. You may need to remove the heat sink , and a back support brace to get to the mother board connector to re solder it.
This has been a problem on 3 of my friends laptops Pushing on a button harder and harder doesn't solve the problem. It's not the button .Now you know the rest of the story. http://support.dell.com/edocs/system/latd610/en/sm_en/index.htm
Hopes this helps just remember where all the extra screws go when you re assemble your laptop
sounds like the small signal board issue as the replacement board is over 600.00 You can get the replacement board at the following link for a fraction of that cost. Heres the link you can leave them a email with the model number and the symptoms. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
Try the repair service locator at the home page of Fixya. It will list any of our experts that are available or have shops in your area. I will recommend that you stay away from Bestbuy, they're expensive, and always trying ro sell you more.
Unless your a tech ....it would not be wise... the crt board as it called has very high voltages... which board was it red green or blue .. right center or left... usally when one of these boards are bad that indicates a possible problem with the actually crt.. very diffcult repair.. be carefull please
