Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
This is an intermittent problem and when I get it to power on I can use it for as long as I like but if I shut it down sometimes it will start right back up but usually not PLEASE HELP !!!
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.
Hopes this helps just remember where all the extra screws go when you re assemble your laptop
