Dell Latitude X1 will not power up

The power supply seems to be fine, the battery does not charge, and the laptop will no longer boot up. somehow looks like something went wrong inside the laptop so that the external power does not get to the Laptop, nor to the battery to charge it. Is this a common error with the Dell Latitude X1?

    Tried both. Reseated the memory and tried to boot up with no battery installed. But still no reaction at all.

Hi,

I had this problem just last week; the solution for my X1 was very simple. The problem was the power cord, which had worn out. The adapter was working, but the frayed cord never got the power to the computer. Before you try anything else, try replacing the power cord--it's cheap, easy, and may well work for you too! Good luck!

This is a common problem for all laptops.

The issues you're experiencing all point towards a bad motherboard.

There is very little that you can do yourself other than trying to boot the computer with no battery and reseating the memory.

Try these two options first, write back, and then we'll proceed from there.

    If that's the case then it's a bad motherboard for sure.

    Not much you can do except to replace the board.

    That's always a bummer, sorry.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Best of luck!

Pc booting light blinking battery


As a rule this indicates a low battery or a failing battery. If you charge it and it drains quickly, it needs replacement. When getting a new battery (power cells), fully charge it overnight and use it until it drains completely. Once it is recharged for 24 hours, the batter will obtain a memory and last longer.

the batteries eventually wear out and quit taking a charge. You can run the system without a battery with no ill effects. replacements are about $100 for a new battery

If the other laptop can't see the network, then it sounds like you somehow turned off SSID broadcasting while you were in the router's settings. Log back into your router and look for the SSID broadcast enable setting. Make sure it is set to on, then save the changes and reset the router if you have to. The laptop should be able to see it now. (There is also a setting in the Windows wireless network properties that you can check to connect to a network even if it is not broadcasting, as long as you have connected to it previously.)

Hope that helps!

How to replace battery for a Latitude X1


The Dell Latitude X1 laptop has a 53 WHr 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery. Your safest bet is to purchase a replacement battery from Dell directly, in order to avoid confusion and mismatched parts. The Dell Part number for your battery is Dell Part# : 312-0342. The Manufacturer Part# : Y6457. The cost is 135.99 from Dell directly. While you may be able to find a battery elsewhere for cheaper, it is not recommended.

Good Luck,

Periodic Boot-up Problems with Dell Latitude D600


Well I had the same problem with my Dell Latitude D600. I tried many batteries, fully charged, partially charged and even i tried scenarios with AC Power On or Off. Nothing really seemed to work as my laptop was both hot and cold. I noticed this problem was coming specially when laptop is cold.
The Solution is found is, when i have this problem, i press the power button and then move the rotate the laptop, so that its screen touches the desk and keybord is upright verticle, i know it sounds ODD, but it really made my life so easier as now this problem doesnt haunt me.  and it will boot on first, second or third go.

Normal Laptop Condition with keybord down and LCD Open
                     /                     /      / lcd
__________/
You need to move the laptop in one of the following if it is having boot problem again
       \               /          \            /            \         /  keybrd  \      /  lcd                \   /                 \/
or put the lcd down flat while keeping the keyboard in the same position as above.

I m sorry the above illustrations are pretty rough but hope u understand what i mean :)
