Re: Power cord shorts out
Three possible issues,
1. the cord is bad, to test this go to local PC shop and buy a universal power cord test it with this cord. If it works then your cord was bad and you have purchased the correct part. If it doesnt work return cord for a refund.
2. The connector inside the laptop that the power cord connects to is loose and has a short in it. If its loose take it to a PC Shop that knows how to solder and have them reconnect it securely.
3. The laptop has incurred internal damage possibly from a fall or ruff handling. If this is the case the Motherboard may need to be replaced. If this is the case consider purchasing a new laptop.

The two things I've dealt with in cases such as yours is I have sometimes failed to have a 110v outlet really, actually working. The other problem was when I wouldn't be patient enough to plug in the computer and let it charge for a while BEFORE attempting to start it.. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know for sure, but, in your case, I might also suspect a bad battery... that was sucking up too much charging juice... to allow the computer to start up and run.
the charging port and or motherboard is grounding out that is to say positive and negitive coming together wont damage the charger once you plug the charger out of thhe laptop and outlet then plug back to outlet the light will return has to be look at by a technician
Remove the battery and try again. If it solved the problem the battery is shorted and must be replaced. Look at the plug in the back of the laptop for the power. Is it lose? if it is lose you have a short from it touching contactd together and it must be replaced. If neither of these work try using a loner power supply to see if it is that. The D600 has lots of Power problems on of witch is the Motherboard itself. Hope this helps you out.
hi there, there are many things that could be wrong here. First, make sure that the battery is plugged in with the power cord. If that doesn't work, it may be that the computer isn't reading that the power button is being pushed. If you know a little bit about computers and how to disassemble them and put them back together, take apart the top of the computer where the power button is, carefully disconnect the wires and look to see that the power button is not damaged. If it is, then you need to bring it to a computer repair shop for them to fix it. If not, then it is something to do with the connection between the power cord and battery not sending power to the system.
i dont know why dell did this but you have to have battery to run your laptop. the ac coard charges the battery which runs the computer. I really know why but i dont like the configuration. it is so the power is clean to your computer and so the can have less parts in the laptop you need to get a new battery
