Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I have a Dell Latitude D600 Laptop. The problem? It locks up
When it locks up the screen freezes and absolutely nothing happens. I have to hold the power button to kill
When I try to turn it back on, the power light (only) blinks fast about 6 times and then goes off.
Now, if I lift up on the front of my laptop and press down on the right side of the touchpad near the bottom of the keyboard, it will start properly.
Not alot of pressure is being applied.
and this works without fail.
I have taken this laptop apart to see if anything is out of the ordinary. also unplugged and replugged everything (I could see) to make sure it was properly connected.
It is also very hard if not impossible to duplicate the problem
Thanks for your help
Have you added anything new ?
for locking up and freezing
in add/remove uninstall any programs you no longer need
then do a virus scan on the pc
restart then do a disk defrag
once you've finished these tasks do a windows update.
clean around the power button and your touchpad
i am not sure why you would need to press your touchpad
i will look into that problem
has it been dropped
please let me know

I think 6 flashes means memory issue. You might want to try and remove and re-insert the memory. Usually found underneath in a compartment held in with 1 screw. If this don't work, I would try and purchase new memory. This would be the cheapest and first thing to eliminate.
