Latitude D830 starts then shuts down quickly.


1. Make sure you are plugged into A/C.. Your battery could be running low.
2. Make sure there is nothing blocking the heat vents. This symptom is typical for overheating processors.

I purchased a new battery for my Dell Latitude 810 and it still won't hold a charge. The battery indicator light is green for a brief period, turns amber and then shuts off.


If you installed a new battery in your Dell computer and still can't get it to charge, there is a strong possibility that there is something wrong with the charging system

DEll Latitude D520 is not starting at all.


Remove the main battery and try again, no change! remove the ram memory one at a time, testing as you go making sure there is one ram stick in the slot at all times. If none of these work, the motherboard is the likely problem and you will need a technician to access.

Hi, the three green lights on my dell 100l flashes when ever i plug it in.when i press the switch button it stops flashing but does not come on. please help


Take the battery out, connect the power plug and see if the laptop runs without the battery connected, the main battery may need to be replaced.

Does not power on, but lights flash


Hi

Thank you for your query

The clicking noise you are hearing is one of 2 things

1) The CPU fan trying to turn but it cannot, therefore your PC comes on for a short period of time, overheats and switches off

2) The Hard drive is faulty and is causing a short, making the LAptop switch off

Either one will need further inspection by a qualified engineer

Please book laptop into a reputable PC shop for further diagnosis

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again
