Try removing the laptop from the doc, pulling out the battery, hold the power button down for 10-20 seconds, and re-install the battery.

This should drain out the laptop and it should boot up properly without the dock.

Dell precision m60 press the power button the screen blinks for a second the lights next to the power button stay lite for about 3-4 seconds then the entire laptop turns off. ANy ideas guys?


You could have a bad peice of memory or a bad memory slot. Pull the memory out and try one peice at a time in each of the two slots. If you only have 1 peice you will need to either borrow a peice of the same memory or buy it. You also could have a shorted battery so pull the battery out if the ram is ok and try to boot. Another idea is the cd rom may have a problem so pull it if the ram and battery are ok. After doing all this if the system will still not boot the motherboard must have a short and needs replacement. This model also had an issue with the power board where the power button is. The connector on the motherboard was poorly designed and very sloppy. Over time it gets worn and causes a similar issue. The temporary cure is to press very hard on the power button to see if it will boot and then leave it running. You can also put pressure on the underneath side around the docking port and press the power button. This issue however requires a new motherboard. The M60 is almost the same as the D800 infact most parts are interchangeable. You could switch out the motherboard to a D800. I refurbish the D600 AND D800'S daily so I am fimilar to this issue. Let me know how you make out. Phil pmgibs1@verizon.net

You can eject your cd drive by inserting a needle (saftey pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole near the eject button.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the cd drive and select eject.

CD wont eject from drive


Have you already tried to mannually open the tray, by inserting a thin straight object (like a unbent paper clip) in the manual eject hole on the optical disk drive? The hole exists for that pupose.

Dell M60 volume buttons


At the left of your power button, past the word PRECISION, there is a slot for a screwdriver. With the screen fully open, use that slot to remove the power and volume buttons. At the other end of the stip you removed will be the connector that connects the buttons to the motherboard. Reconnect it better. I had this problem too.

Dell M60 LCD screen stopped working


Hi,
Based on your troubleshooting, it certainly is the lcd that we are having problems with. It can be the cable or a back light problem. first try to reseat the cable. use this manual to guide you. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsM60/en/UG/index.htm

if it doesnt work, try to call dell. they have a grace period of 5-10 days from expiration date of warranty. if still no luck, call spareparts 800-3573355. purchase the lcd from there and install it yourself using the manual i gave.

hope this helps.

thanks.
