You can use an eighth-inch sub-mini stereo male plug to two RCA-type male plugs (one for left and one for right), plugged into the headphone jack. The adapter is readily available from Radio Shack or any electronics store. Just keep the volume level down on the laptop to keep from getting distortion or damaging the inputs on the stereo.

The two ports on the laptop are most likely a mic input and a headphone output.
Connect a cable (stereo) from the headphone output to the stereo input of your amp.

Dell latitude d510 has no power

Please check out the following steps to confirm the real issue:
1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

I think the most likely cause is that your dell charger is broken, just try a new charger to test:

Latitude 510 battery light flashing amber and white

Hello, the problem you are having is caused by a loose connection on your motherboard between the charging port and the motherboard. You can either open your computer and try to solder it, or you will need to replace the motherboard.

Another possible cause is that your laptop charger is dead. If you can't confirm, just get a new ac adapter, it is much cheaper than replacing the motherboard:

I cant get my dell laditude D510 to turn on

Some machines need a battery with some power left in them, to work. If the battery is finished you will need to get it rpacked or buy another.
If the battery should be OK you cannot run it on the power supply, that may have burnt out. You can buy ones that work on all machines much cheaper that an original.

  1. If available, try an AC adapter from another D or E series Dell and see if the system powers on. If none is available, use a multimeter to see if the DC output of the adapter is around 19 volts.
  2. If the system doesn't power on with a different adapter or if the Voltage is good on the adapter, then the failure is most likely the motherboard.

Ac adapter's wont charge battery or pwr. unit

I would say take to a good PC repair shop (Not Geek Squad) and ask them to look at the power jack on the motherboard, it may need replacing. Next would be more of a a motherboard problem and its just quit. Good repair shops could help you either way get it fixed. I don't recommend anyone tackling any sort of laptop motherboard fix unless you really know what your doing.
