Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

At Dell screen the d600 shuts off

I just got new charger and batt for laptop anit seemed to work fine until I tried to defrag disk and half way thru ran out of batt and even though ac was pluged in it shut down. Now when I try to bootup it gets to the dell screen and 3/4 of the way thru the red batt light comes on and the computer shuts off. This is with 65% battery life according to the lights on the batt and the ac pluged in. Any help will be appreciated.

Dell Vostro 3500 suddenly shut down, start up and works fine, after 2 minutes turn off without any warning message this happened after i installed bios upgrade A10 from dell.com


this is happening because of bios upgrade but not in a bad way. May be there is a hardware problem just starting so new bios upgrade is detecting that and thats why its restarting.

basically sudden shut down occurs in either cases- Fan not working or hard disk(or RAM) gone bad.

my advise is to contact dell customer support and they will guide you thru trouble shooting steps.
they will guide you if your warranty is not there.

Hi , I have Dell Latitude D600 Laptop, it is working fine but a few days ago , it gave an Error on Boot Screen "Unknown AC Adapter...." while there has been no change in Adapter , Battery or any Hardware....


The Adapter should be able to run the laptop and keep the battery charged. Take adapter to a shop and have it checked. If good then the connector where it connects to laptop is probably bad.

Laptop display only displaying the top half of the screen


Test it with an external monitor if it works fine then you will need to replace your LCD screen.

My Dell laptop's battery charging circuit faulty.


try to remove your batt and check if laptop works fine with ac adapter alone.

if yes then put batt in then check how much charge you have if you have about 10% then update the bios immediately.

if fails then have the batt replaced.

DELL LATITUDE D600 WON'T POWER UP AT ALL!


The charger may be bad. You need to measure the output voltage at the computer end of the cord with a voltmeter. Zero volts means bad unit, but may be just the plug end wires are broken near the plug (common problem). A repair shop might be able to fix it with a new plug. A new charger is outrageously expensive.

UNABLE TO BOOT DELL D600 - FAILURE TO DETECT HARD DISK


If you press F12 during bootup, you should get the boot menu. Run the hard disk diagnostic. If the hard disk is bad, you will get a DST Short Test Error code.

Replacing the hard disk in a D600 is a piece of cake though so if you need a new HD, it's easy to do. The tedious work will come afterward.

Low disk space


sounds like the additional memory is not recognized, but the low disk space refers to your hard drive. Either delete some files and defrag or upgrade your hard drive.

Laptop


sounds like an unhappy hard drive..can you try F8 when it starts to boot, before the logo hits the screen, that takes it to SAFE mode. try the last known good configuation option, if it is there. otherwise, safe mode

then do disk clean
defrag
and then restart.
