Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

I don't know how to charge my battery

I just bought a dell latitude d600 of ebay and everything seems to work great, but how do I charge the battery? It works while it is plugged in, but it says the battery is not charged and I'm not sure how to charge it. Is there another adaptor to charge the battery that I didn't get??? or is this just not working? I know I'm not very smart when it comes to comupter stuff!

    I'm assuming they sold me one with a dead battery then. That sucks because I needed one before next week to go on a trip next week and I doubt I'll be able to order one via the mail, before then...I hate shady dealers!

Its ok. Um just leave the battery plugged into your laptop and the power cord plugged into the laptop as well and the laptop will charge it for you. If it won't, the battery is no good and get a new one but you don't need a external battery charger to charge your laptop battery.

Probably. Look for a replacement battery on eBay. I have threee d600s and about a year ago I bought aftermarket batteries on eBay that work fine for about 1/3 the cost of a genuine Dell.

Have battery and plug in for laptop. the laptop begin to start with the Dell page, then shuts off. the battery icon shows red like charging but them just shuts off . If I take battery out, no power at all.


This sounds like a problem with the AC charger not providing enough power. The battery never charges enough to maintain power during boot. See if you can borrow a charger to check (maybe from a local shop), or buy one (since you'll probably need one anyway). Don't over pay. I see them on eBay for $12 or so. I bought one recently from a local shop for $25. That should give you a ballpark price. Post your zip code, maybe someone here can help you.

We have a Dell latitude d600 and the old battery had gone bad some time ago, would charge, but lasted maybe 10 minutes. We bought a new OEM Dell battery for it, and put it on charge all night. The charge...


Sounds like you should try a regular Dell factory refurbished battery. Or if not that, try a battery that you knows works for sure. Then try charging it up, if it doesn't charge up then you know its a situation with the motherboard.

I just bought on ebay d400. the battery does not charge. Any thoughts?


If the d400 works with AC current but not just on battery, the battery is dead.

I would say its defective. Bring it back to where you bought it and show them. Bring your laptop charger also so you can show them it in action. Hope this helped.

Dell latitude d600 pc notebook, infrared and bluetooth problem


Check the device manager to see if the drivers for the infrared device are there. If they aren't there, then go to Dell's site and download them. If they are, unistall, reinstall, the check Dell's site for updates. If the device manager shows everything working properly, the device itself may be malfunctioning. The same procedure for the bluetooth device.
