Try switching the battery bay its in. My C800 will use battery from the right bay, but won't charge even though it says it is. It will charge/use from the left bay (main battery bay).

Re: my c600 is not puttin power in battery

If its the battery with a press button that lights up 5 green lights.. if u hold it for about 6 seconds it should light up all or some in a row like 000.. ( depends on charge it has) after 6 seconds none should flash , they should turn off . if any do flash or led green are missing in between its likely a bad battery.

When power cord is unplugged laptop has no power.

Your battery is dead. If you are using the correct power "brick" that your computer requires and it will not charge the battery you need a new battery.

hi there, you can try this unplug the powercord from the pc and remove the battery and than press the power key than replace the battery adn plug in the power cord and let it charge for a hour or so and than try it again. if it boots good if not try to press the del key right after you turn on the unit and check the settings of bios to see what they are set at and try to set it to default or failsafe than save on exit and reboot and see what that does

Dell C600

Here goes, first download the A12 BIOS from this page or others,

Then, Run this file to make a bootable bios floppy disk. Reboot the laptop floppy will start dos mode, the updater will detect any bios newer then A12 and say finished without changing anything and come to an a: prompt.

type dir for a list of files on the floppy. If your typing gets you wierd symbols try holding the Fn key (lower left) lookfor the filename C600_A12.exe or somthing like this. type it at the a prompt exact. The bios flash will check system bios and ask your permission to revert back to A12. say Y.

Computer will reboot. take floppy out.

My batteries charge grat now, but I don't get all ythe settings pages in Bios that I should, It seems to hang when i enter Bios. Laptop works fine though. i have installed and tries all bios from A12 yo A23, the A12 seems to be the best. No problems from winXP.

C600 not starting

Check memory and CPU first, typically they cause shut offs. Try battery, AC to laptop and AC via port replicator. Borrow one if need be, but it's good to check these options

Dell Latitude C800

Does this happen with both the power plugged and running on battery?
Check the power modes, because the screen intensity is one of the power saving settings.

Hmmm, Typically safe mode overcomes most errors, You can make changes in MS-Dos, but if all else fails and you fear data loss, daisy chain the hard disk to another computer with matching OS and move the important files then wipe and re-format

try load defaults on bios by goin F2 on dell splash screen. if still no go, remove battery and leave adapter plugged in. if no power while adapter only plugged in, replace adapter, if has power while adapter plugged in, replace motherboard( since you already replaced the old battery).
