Question about Dell Latitude E5500 Laptop
I had this exact same issue on a Inspiron (don't remember the model, but was purchased around 2005 or 2006) and it turned out to be a bad mobo.....rather a power chip bad on the mobo that I wasn't going to take off and re-solder a new one on.
Dell website will have a schematic on the certain lights that light up when you power on and you can use that to help diagnose your problem.
Some of them are simple like RAM not recognized by motherboard. Try taking out your RAM stick and putting it back in, then boot and see if it boots.

SOURCE: laptop will not turn on
Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.
If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.

Pressing Ctrl + F11 should resolved the issue if the restore partition still exists in functioning condition on the hard drive. Seeing as most D600s are off-lease machines on their fourth or fifth year by now, I'd say the chances of the aforementioned partition existing, not to mention working, are slim. You will probably have to re-install XP on your own. If you already have an XP installation. Once you installed XP on your computer, all drivers are available at Dell's website.
Best of luck.

A few things to check:
1.) Check the battery is charged and the charger is supplying the right voltage and the power jack is tight in the laptop DC port. Check that the charger (on charger) light is steady green, not flashing.
2.) Remove battery and try to boot on AC Power, if this works, either the battery is not charging (dead battery) or the charging circuit in the laptop is damaged.
3.) Remove Ram modules oner at a time, see if it boots with one module in, if it does, then issue is with the ram
4.) Examine the cooling vents, try blowing them to see if any dust is released, hoover them as best you can, if this cures the problem (and it will be a temporary fix), get the laptop stripped down and give it a proper clean around the processor and fan areas. (overheating issue)
If it does not help, then Its looking like your motherboard has developed a fault through maybe overheating
