Dell m1210 does not boot up - quickly powers off

I have a Dell m1210 notebook that does not power on completely. What i mean by this is that when I press the power button and a couple seconds later it just powers off before the bios screen. I tried reseating the memory and hdd but to no avail...

Any ideas?

    Yeah, my just-arrived mobo is also experiencing the same problem. I stripped each part down to the bare motherboard and yet the thing still isn't powering up! It has got to be the motherboard, I'll post an update when I exchange the unit.

I suspect the safety circuits is detecting a big power drain. What I would do is pull one thing off at a time and see if it stays on. Such like hard drive, memory, and anything else you can. Even disconnecting the LCD if you have too.

Another possibility is that your battery is bad. Try to boot up without the battery and just on AC. No help? Maybe the AC is bad. Try running on the battery alone and no AC.

That pretty much covers everything. If nothing works above, it is the motherboard. :(

To determine if your hard drive is bad or good, run the Dell diagnostics.
Here is a link for the owner's manual of your model:

I am afraid that such kind off issues could only be solved by motherboard replacement, unless you can contact Dell support with a proof of ownership of this notebook.

There is also this service which can help you crack the BIOS password:

I have a Dell XPS M1210 laptop for which I have just purchased a new 9-cell compatible battery. It worked great for a couple of hours, but now shuts off immediately when unplugged from the AC power supply....


You might want to try what I did when I had a completely discharged battery for my Dell Laptop. I attached the battery to the computer, make sure the computer is off and plug in the charger for a full twenty four hours (undisturbed). And this really worked. I had no problems with the battery. Good luck.

Xps m1210 won't start


Before getting to that point are you sure your battery and power adapter are functioning properly? You may want to try each seperately and see if you get a response.
