Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook

Powering up a dell d610 laptop

I plug in the laptop and the light on the power chord lights up as usual. When I press the "on" button on the laptop, the only thing onboard that lights up is a light that looks like a capital "A" inside a lock. It intermittently turns on and off before just remaining off and the laptop never turns on. What could be the problem?

Could be stuck in a sleep mode, or battery is drained or dead.

First try pulling the battery and ac power out and let sit for about 1 hour. Reconnect and try to boot. If boots, was stuck in sleep mode.

If fails try with ac power, but without the battery. If boots, battery bad.

If fails, then need to try pulling the CMOS battery or look for a reset button. This requires more details.

Laptop wont even start to power up when power buttonis pressed the green power light comes on for about 4 to 5 seconds then goes off the same thing happens with battery or power packthe same thinh happens...


Problem may be a simle matter of the battery contacts needing to be adjusted so they make better contact for charging and use. Use a needle and ~GENTLY~ raise contact bars on either laptop or battery.

PLEASE HELP!! I am going on a business trip tomorrow and ALL of my requisite files are on my Dell Latitude D610 that won't power on. PROBLEM: once I removed it from my docking station at work, it won't...


When you say you "tried turning it on with the battery removed", did you leave it plugged into the wall with the charging adapter at the time? Please clarify that you tried to use it while plugged in without the battery and it would not power up? When you plugged it in without the battery, was the green charging light on? Or did you get no power light at all?

With your battery in, try using a different outlet to plug into. Plug it into another outlet and when the green charging light comes on press and hold your power button on your keyboard and do not release it for 30 to 45 seconds. Tell me if this boots up the pc even if just for a moment?

There are three lights on your keyboard that should come on when the laptop is plugged in and turned on. One is the power light, the other is the battery charging light and the last one is the hard drive indicator that looks like a round cylinder on the picture. Tell me when you plug it into the outlet and the battery charge light is on, does the hard drive light come on and/or flicker when you try to power up the laptop? How many lights come on when you press and hold down the power button with the cord plugged into the wall?

I have a Dell Latitude D610. The battery was dead (got the 4 blinking amber lights and the green light flashing once, then cycling), so I replaced the battery. The new battery has the lights on the bottom...


From the description, sounds like you have two failures, both concerning the mother board.

1. The connection to the motherboard for the battery is no longer good. Replace the mother board. The points of failure that you have given so far and has not fixed the issue. Battery fully charged, seated well, no change, mother board.

2. Laptop will come on with AC adapter attached but will not boot up; mother board. There is a built in test that you can run, from a powered down state press FN + Power button, this puts this into a diagnostic state. If it does not go into this diagnostic; mother board. The diagnostic is stored in the BIOS, which is a part of the mother board.

3. If the diagnostic runs note any error codes that it gives. They will be in the form off XXXX-XXXX or XXXX:XXXX, where the X's represent a letter or a number. These can be used for further trouble shooting.

Dell d610 wont turn on ac adapter light is green


There is a small IC that Dell solders into their power supply as well as their batteries. When this parts fails you will have the type of problem you are having now. If you do a search on the web you will find a large number o sites that discuss this. Unfortunately there is no fix other than replacing your power supply. I had to do the same thing myself for the Dell laptop I use.

My Dell Laptop D610 wont turn on. It was on, I


Turn off laptop, Remove the battery and the power cable and press the power button for about 30 seconds.

Check for light on AC adapter.
Try with battery alone. Try with AC adapter alone.

Try with a different adapter of the same kind.

else the issue could be with the main board for which I would request you to contact the manufacturer.

Dell D610 Power lights come and then go off


check inside the laptop if your processor fan is working properly...sudden shutoff is usually cause when the censor in the board detects that the fan is not triggering to prevent overheating.

going to the nearest PC repair shop would be a good choice.
