Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire 5315 and it has a black screen when I try to boot it. I have connected it to a good monitor and it didn't help. I replaced the hard drive with a good hard drive, and nothing. I tried to boot without the battery and it didn't work. I tried to boot with a boot disk, too.
When I hit the power button, it makes a bit of a chugging sound and then stops after a minute or so. It doesn't beep. The fan seems to be starting up.
I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.
Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up
Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.
Did the following:
1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see http://www.insidemylaptop.com/ for details). (4 screws)
2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)
3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.
4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.
DAMN I'M GOOD!
