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

Hi

from what you are describing it sounds like one of 2 things

1) The cpu heat sink has gone which has caused the CPU to become unstable
2) The hard drive will need to be replaced

You will need to book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for repair

Verify that the light on the power block is green with the cable only connected to the wall. If the light goes out when it's connected to the PC the your motherboard is bad.

Laptop will not turn on


Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.

If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.

My dell laptop doesnt turn on


Remove the bezel avove the keyboard with a small flat head screwdriver. Press the power button with your finger and see if it powers up. If it does, just replace the bezel. If not, then you could have a bad system board.

Does the battery show a charge when you press the button located on it? Does the power adapter show a green light when it's plugged into an A/C outlet?
