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

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.

My dell M1530 laptop has startup problems. It

Hi i'm Rain.
Well The reason that it is taking so long to load Windows is its in bad need of cleaning . Also there are too many things starting up with windows. Every program you download will want to start when Windows star up unless you change that.
Now the reason that is not Keeping the date and time is because the DDO battery for the bios is going back. I can Walk you thru the Disk Clean up and Disk defrag . But I would not advise you to open up your laptop and try changing the DDO battery.
To do a Disk Clean up .
  1. Click Start.
  2. Click All Programs.
  3. Click Accessories.
  4. Click System Tools .
  5. Click Disk Clean up.
It will scan your files then a box will pop up.
check all the boxes and click next.
This will clean up your computer and help it to move faster. Now you follow the same instructions but this time you click on Disk defrag.
Click on Defrag to start the Defragging .
Do this as soon as you get the computer on desk top.

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.

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.

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
and then restart.
