Question about Dell Precision M6300 Notebook
The laptop was working fine the night before, I just closed it down through windows and had this when I tried to power up the next morning, the power light comes on but it won't boot, the screen remains black, it tries the hard disk then the cd rom but after 5 secs nothing happens, after that it just sits there with the power light on, I tried pressing the media direct button + d on the keyboard and got lots of different colour screens but that is the only sign of life it has shown, I changed the memory modules with known working ones, no effect in it's behavior. I suspect it's the bios on the motherboard, I hope I'm wrong and it's something less pricey to get working again.

SOURCE: Hang at startup (BIOS)
Yes laptops can work without battery.
If the laptop is hanging on Dell logo and entering into BIOS then normally it is HDD issue but you have already checked without HDD so might be it is RAM or Board issue.
You can check with PC 133.
Please check your Laptop with minimal boot once (by removing all external hardwares like modem,tv tuner or graphics if any) and if you are geting the display one of the devices is causing the issue whch could be diagnosed by connecting one by one.
