Bad news, this most likely indicates a problem in the charging circuit on the mainboard. To be sure, remove the battery and try again, if the same thing happens, then the problem is on the mainboard, if not, replace the battery. I have encountered this problem on an older Dell laptop before, removing the battery did not help and replacing the charger did not help. If the problem is on the mainboard, replacement is rarely practical. The cost of the board and the labor to replace it usually exceeds the cost of replacing the laptop.

Hopefully someone else has a better solution.

My Dell D800 laptop would not start when the on-button was pushed, though it would start in a docking station. The on-button seemed to go in further than before. I looked over the Dell D800 manual, and decided to pull the upper bracket there. You should read the manual, but basically you put the screen at 180 degrees, and use a screw driver to lift the top bracket, carefully, starting at the left side. There is a small slot there to start. You get a 10-12 inch long piece of bracket, with the plug-in at the right side as you look at. There are 3 small Phillips head screws that hold the metal bar below the switch (I recommend to do this on the kitchen counter, away from any carpeted area, you will never find those pieces in a carpet). I took out the 3 screws, and looked it over. It seems the small spring in the on-button got bumped off center. I re-centered the spring, put the 3 screws back in, re-installed the bracket, and it started right up.

Maybe 10 minutes of work, and worth a try.

Batery won't charge new battery n plug


You may have the wrong AC adaptor, Dell is very picky when it comes to Power adaptors, it must be original OEM Dell for the laptop to recognize it, any after market no name brand even though it has the right specs and is made for your model will power your laptop but the circuit to charge your battery will automatically be closed

I Have a Dell Latitude D800 and it's plugged into power. when i hit the start button it lights up a couple of lights on the keyboard, they go out after a couple of seconds and then nothing happens?


Is the battery charging? and is the power adaptor properly plugged in? If yes then it's probably a faulty PSU and you will need to phone DELL for a replacement/repair.

My Dell Latitude will not turn on. When I press the power button it will come on for 5 seconds then go off. Can anyone help ?


Plug in the AC power cord, remove the battery, and try powering up. Anything? Any lights?
Remove power cord, hold in the power button for 30 seconds, then try plugging it in again and powering up without the battery. Any change?

D800 will not even boot


Okay, I had that problem with my HP less than a minute ago.

Maybe it is the same problem. See if the battery light comes on. Press the power button again and again if it doesn't start, for some time. It may show the boot screen and hang. Now, the battery must be charged. Shut it down directly and switch the AC off.

Now, switch it on and see if the battery light comes on. If it does, it is the same problem as mine. Now, turn the PC over and remove the battery carefully. There may be switches for that.

Now, plug in the AC and start it without the battery in. If it does, you're done. Now, plug in the battery again.

Dell D800 Startup problem


No, it is a DC Power Jack issue,,,it sounds like the +positive Post on the jack has wiggled loose from the mainboard..you can tell by pluggin in the AC Power cord and wiggling the plug if you see the power light coming on and off.. it's a Loose DC Jack,
If it doesnt do as i just described, and it won't power up at all, it is the motherboard.. and will need to be replaced.. Another Possibility is that it is Stuck in Sleep Mode.. Hope this helps you ..
