    I HAVE A DELL LATITUDE D600 WITH A SIMILAR PROBLEM. AT FIRST. I WAS HAVING HARD DRIVE FAILURE. I WAS ABLE TO PURCHASE A HARD DRIVE AND INSTALL IT, WHEN I GOT MY PROGRAM INSTALLED AND AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES OF HAVING IT RUN IT STARTED TO FREEZE. AFTER A WHILE OF MESSING WITH IT I FOUND THAT LIGHTLY PRESSING IN THE AREA OF THE PROCESSOR IT WOULD UN-FREEZE OR GIVE ME A GRAY SCREEN WITH WWW.DELL.COM AND THEN IT WOULD SHUT DOWN. WHEN I TRIED TO RESTART IT THE THREE LIGHTS NEXT TO POWER BUTTON WOULD TURN WITH POWER BUTTON LIGHT AND STAY ON FOR 5 SEC. THE MOST AND NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN, NO MONITOR, HARD DRIVE OR FAN. I ALSO APPLIED SOME THERMAL COMPOUND TO THE PROCESSOR HOPING THAT IT WOULD FIX IT, I WAS WRONG. HELP ME PLEASE.

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.

Remove the battery and ac adapter. Press power button for 10 seconds then connect the ac adapter. Turn on the system. If this didn't work. You need to go to a service center to test your motherboard.

Any idea why my Dell D610 is not booting up and showing a dark screen only


Hi,

You can try the following steps:

1. Unplug the power from the laptop and remove the battery then press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds

2. Put the battery back in, turn on the laptop without plugging the power to the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue)

3. Remove the battery and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, after that, plug the power cord and turn on the laptop (if this didn't resolve the issue)

4. Remove the power cord and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, disconnect the Hard drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnec the hard drive

5. Remove the Optical Drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnect the optical drive

6. Remove the memory chip, if you have 2 memory chips installed in the 2 memory slots (remove both of them) now test each one of the memory to each slots turning on the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue) Put the memory chip back in

7. Reseat the CPU and try to make sure that it's installed properly. Turn on the laptop and test if it's gonna work (If this didn't resolve the issue)

8. Reseat the power cords coming from the power supply of the laptop and test the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue)

9. Disconnect everything and just leave the CPU installed and turn on the laptop.

10. If all else fails, there's a big possibility that the problem may be with the power supply or the motherboard of the laptop.

(Note: you may try to clean your computer if there is a large amount of dust. You may try to remove the CMOS battery)

regards,

Dell latitude d820. press power button. no display. hard drive light on for a second and turns off. reseated memory, hooked up to external monitor. nothing.


This may be a really stupid question, but you could have overlooked it... Are you sure the power cable is attached to the laptop correctly? It seems like it's just short of power.

Computer will not turn on


Do you hear the hard disk spin up? is there a hard disk boot password configured? can you see a bios screen as it tries to boot? is the light on the power supply lighting up?

Dell D600 Wont turn on sometimes.


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

Dell Latitude C610 Laptop won't turn on


If the light comes on for three seconds and then go out ,generally means a power distrubution problem . remove the optical drive and memory from the system and try powering it on. If u get the same result , its time to take it to service tech , as your motherboard needs to be checked
