Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

4 Answers

Dell D600 Wont turn on sometimes.

My Dell 600 won't turn on sometimes. You press the start button, one light flickers, it makes a clicking sound and turns off. Sometimes after 3 or 4 attempts all the lights come on and it boots up. Any ideas? Bad hard drive, power unit or what?

    Hi guys. My problem with the Dell Latitude D600 is not the mother board. I found out heproble later today. The solder joints on the bios chip are loose. this is common on a lot of Dell's. If I hold down the F7 & F8 keys when I press the on button, the laptop starts right up. The solder joints are right below the F7 & F8 keys. I need to have them re-soldered, unfortunately I cannot do that. I checked around and most repair shops won't touch the job for fear they will mess up and have to replace the mother board. I did find one guy to do it. He wants $100 to start. Way too much for a 5 year old laptop. I will save my money and get a new HP laptop.

    You can run a diagnostic on most Dell laptops by pressing the volume on button along with the power button. The diagnostic program will start right up. You won't need to use the F12. Try it!

I doubt it is your harddrive even if you didnt have a hdd connected it should still boot when you press the power button... it sounds like you have a short circuit on the motherboard... its a common issue wit the dell latitude models. replace it and 9 time out of 10 itll take care of the boot issue

Reseat the harddrive (take out the screw and slide it in and out)

You can run diagnostics, during startup (just after Dell logo) press F12,then select Boot to Utility partition, or Diagnostic partition.

It may reveal you issue

Hope this helps

Sounds like a bad keyboard.
There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

I think you are correct. I think id be looking at the connection the back of the ignition switch for starters ... but dont neglect any connection. Make sure battery connection is secure (though it probably is as you say you get a click when you press the starter.) I would normally expect the battery side of the start solenoid to be the place where your fuse panel gets its power ... look around and check all connections.
