So when you push the button, does the computer turn on and not do anything, or does it turn on, and then off again really quickly. If its the first, then you should try updating you bios to the latest version, if its not already at A16. If its the second, your power switch is probably damaged. You might need to buy a new "switch board" is what it is usually refered to as, and look through the dell d600 service manual on the dell website for how to remove and replace the switchboard. It may take some looking to find it

what it sounds like, i could be wrong, is that the battery is dead. I have been using dell machines for YEARS and have never once come across any problems with power connectors/cords of which you speak. The only time i have had one brake was because it was in a place where the cord was tripped over multiple times.
I agree. Try to turn on your computer using the ac adapter only. If the system won't hold power using the ac adapter. I suggest to call you computer manufacturer to check the warranty . I am seeing a problem with the motherboard.
Dell power jacks are notorious for losing the solder connections. If all else fails remove the motherboard, use a solder wick and remove the old solder and resolder the connections. There are four pins that are close together so you need to make certain you do not over solder. Hope this helps
