    bought a new power cord and it still wont power up

    Try "clearing the static" remove all power sources from the laptop, and hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. If this does not work, issue may be in the motherboard.

Have you tried the other fix? It often times works.
Remove the battery AND the power cord.
Hold the power button for 10 seconds.
Now plug in the power cord.

Magic should happen

Dell latitude D505 battery not charging


Take Dell latitude D505 battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.

Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
hope this helps

I got a dell latitde d505 wont power on or anthing no blinking lights no noises. i plug it into the charger n the charger light goes off. can some1 please help me??


Sounds like you may have fried your dell latitude. I have seen many laptop's fry and it is nothing you did, but they just go sometimes.

Recomendaitons:
Take the battery out of the laptop.
Plug the charger in.
Hold the power button for a minimum 10 secs (which will reset the power options)
If there are still no lights than it is your cpu
If the computer turns on then you have a bad battery.

When batteries are bad or dead, the computer tries to run off of the battery befor the charger, it switches over to the charger after your OS has booted. In that case you can just order a new one no big deal, but if your cpu is fried then there is no hope for the laptop. :( I have lost four laptops because of this, so for your sake I hope its the battery or the GND Drain.

Also possible that the GND's drain on your board is too short and Gate 4 is driving low. To fix this you have to remove a SMT ceramic cap, which is located opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. A couple of Dell Latitude d505 have had this problem and can easily be fixed, but must be cautious and know what you are doing. I would advise seeing a professional.

Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

Display is very dark and can barely be viewed. Brightness controls don't do anything. Any suggestions? It is a Dell latitude 505.


Sounds like the back light has gone.
You may be lucky and you just have a loose connection, its worth taking the front off the screen surround and re-seating all conectors.
If it is the backlight, you can get a replacement quite cheap (£10)

The sound is off on my D505. How do I get it on


Download the latest drivers for your Dell Latitude D505 off the dell website or try enabling sound in your operating systems control panel.

I said "Operating Systems control panel" because you did not mention what operating system you have.

Non powering


hi! the motherboard is dead. if the ac adapter light turns off when plugged in and if you unplug it, it will turn on, then the problem is with the motherboard. It needs to be replaced. Call Dell Tech support if you still have warranty to have the motherboard replaced or else, you have to pay for the repair.

Hope this helps!
