I have seen the power switch itself on some pc's stick when turning them off, or be depressed when shuting them down and signal the pc to turn backon. Check your power switch and make sure its functioning correctly.

The above solutions should help. If not,there could be a short in the power assembly. Unfortunately anything associated with power in laptops need a motherboard replacement.

First, it would help to know a little about your system. Are you running XP? The major cause of reboot instead of shutdown is Roxio software. If you have it installed, you might note that the light on your CD/DVD drive stays green throughout the process. Alternatively, you may have "wake on LAN" turned on -- but this is unlikely unless you've been fiddling with BIOS settings. If it's Roxio causing the problem, you can find a patch here: http://www.roxio.com/en/support/ecdc/

Its dell latitutde 6400 workrd last nite but cant get the screen


Debby, here is what you do; remove the battery. Next unplug the charger from the laptop. (Please make sure it is turned OFF FIRST)

Next, hold down the POWER BUTTON ON THE DELL LAPTOP for at least 30 seconds NON-STOP!!! After 30 seconds, let go of the button. Now, insert the charger ONLY and NOT the battery. If the Dell Logo comes on, problem SOLVED!!!! If not, repeat again.

Using Dell laptop Vostro 1500, but battery cannot communicate with the system


There might be a possibility that the battery is not making good contact with the laptop's charging circuitry. To eliminate this possibility as a root cause of the battery not charging, turn off and unplug the laptop, take the battery off the laptop, and using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self. When done, put the battery back into the laptop, plug it, and turn it on.

Machine is going into standby. When you open the lid, press the power button for about two seconds. the machine should come back to full operation and after logging in, you should be back exactly where you left off. I have similar model I am using now to answer your query and I have just done this. No problem. Good Luck, Ian.

You need to reset your computer bios back from its original settings. While turning on your computer keep pressing the del key on your keyboard until you get to the BIOS utility screen. Select the BIOS default option and then save settings and exit.
