Try reseating the processor. Go to and download repair manual. I have seen this same 3 lights a couple of times on c840's (same machine) when I forgot to lock the processor cam in place...

CMOS Battery

Hi Peter, well the good news is the batter is very cheap and easily spotted (if you can find a highly waxed green caterpillar shaped piece - that will be your CMOS battery). Google image Dell Precision M50 battery and you'll find plenty. Looks like the connectors are fairly straight forward to work with
Remember to have the laptop off and away from the mains - and wear an anti static wrist if possible. Regards

Can't get my Dell Precision M50 Laptop video to fill the screen at 1024 768 resolution. Video will only fill the screen when I set resolution to 1600 1200. Is there something wrong with my video card?

1024x768 is a native wide-screen resolution. more than likely your video card is fine and your notebook monitor does not support that format without shrinking the top and bottom which defeats the purpose of filling the whole screen. plug the kappy into an external widescreen monitor or TV and it will work at 1024x768.

My Dell Precision M50 will not boot. The power

hello, it seems like the only thing you haven't tried is to reset BIOS by taking out the battery from the board. since you have reseated everthing else i am assuming that you are comforatble opening up you laptop.
open it one more time and remove the battery from the board (some of these batteries are now soldered so you may need soldering iron)and leave it out for about atleast 10mins.

see if that helps.

Dell precision m50 will not boot power light just flashes when I push the power on button. I have reseated all of the connection in the laptop. I have tried different batteries and different power...

remove external peripherals. remove battery. use ac adapter alone. check if ac adapter has sufficient power or check if ac adapter led is solid green or blue. if not then ac adapter might not giving laptop enough power to power up.
if ac adapter led stays on but some problem check the ac adapter - laptop pin socket if loose or damage. if not then replace mobo.
