maybe you have short circuit on it.
the POST see that your laptop is unable to power up. this is because of any problem in hardware

SOURCE: eI have a Dell D630

I found this you need to be able to read a PDF file.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd630a/en/ug/YT4651en2MR.pdf

and the Dell BIOS Post Codes is a good place to look.

It sounds to me like either the Power Supply Unit PSU or the systemboard are starting to fail.

SOURCE: Dell latitude D600 I was running without a battery

Try flexing the whole bottom assembly. that is with the laptop open put your knee in the middle and grab the unit with one hand on the corner closest to you and the other near the screen and put enough pressure to "flex " the mobo right after you push the start button if it doesn't start try it the other way... this has been working for my grandsons d600 for 6 months. i tried a new switch board because the guy that sold me the mobo said the plug for that is known to crack and that didn't fix it. good luck ps you will know it has worked when the 3 lock lights go out and the power light stays on.

Latitude D830 starts then shuts down quickly.


1. Make sure you are plugged into A/C.. Your battery could be running low.
2. Make sure there is nothing blocking the heat vents. This symptom is typical for overheating processors.

Laptop turns on for a couple seconds but then shuts down, screen doesnt show anything during that ttime


Remove the battery and plug the laptop. If there is no activity when you push on the power button (not even for a second) your motherboard is defective: it could be only the power jack, but it could be a bigger problem also.
There is a very small chance to be a memory problem; check the memory as it follows;
- if you have 2 memory modules use only one at a time, the other one could be defective or
- check your memory with another laptop or
- use some known good memory etc.

If there is no activity or no video signal with good memory that means the motherboard is defective. Could be expensive to be repaired or replaced. Verify if the laptop is in warranty and have it checked by a professional.

Facing problem with battery of Dell Inspiron 6400


Hi,
1. Shut down the system, remove the battery and the Ac adapter from the computer.
2. Press the power on button for 10 seconds
3. Reinsert the battery
4. Power on the computer and as soon as you see the dell logo press the f2 key a couple of time
5. Using the up down arrow keys , go to the option that says battery info. If there is an error message listed kindly post it back

6. Otherwise shut down the computer reconnect the ac.adapter and check if the problem is solved

Also the battery has a diagnostic lights on it , remove the battery from the computer and press the button on the battery a set of lights would glow. If they are steady and come in a series the battery is good , If some lights are missing the battery is bad and may need replacement

Thanks

Dell inspiron 1501 shuts down very often automatically even after changing the battery.


is the laptop running unusually quiet? when you start it up hold it up to your ear and see if you can hear a fan spinning. its not uncommon for a laptops cooling fan to come from factory jammed. if its stuck you can usually dislodge it with a firm smack (after the laptop has been cut off and battery removed, wait a few seconds to make sure the hard drive has spun down).

Laptop keeps losing power at start up and shuts down repeatedly


does it run with the power cord plugged in? if so your batterys dead, otherwise harddrive/bios/motherboard fault? is your power supply charging the battery?

Dell Latitude D600 Wont Start


I would suggest removing the battery, then try powering the unit on. Many laptops will not start if the battery voltage is too low. Many batteries will read a lower voltage than minimal when they are at or near the end of their service life.
