Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
I installed a new hard drive on my Latitude d610, and now I am having problems turning it on. Sometimes I have to push the on botton several times before I can get it to start, once it's on I have no problems with it. It's fustrating because I'm not sure if it needs a new switch or maybe something got mix up when I installed the new hard drive. The Old Hard drive was Hitachi Travelstar Model # HTS548080M9AT00 80gb The New Hard Drive is a Hitachi Model# HTS541616J94T00 160gb I hope this helps.
Installing a new hard drive has nothing to do with the power switch. It may have become dirty or worn, but I would recommend that you hold it in just a little while when turning it on. That should work.
If, as you say, everything works once it's on, then your hard drive installation is not at fault.
If the problem gets worse and the computer finally doesn't start at all, then perhaps you have a problem with the switch and you'll have to deal with that--many times this means a new motherboard (unfortunately).
