It could be the charging port is loose or has gone bad outrightly. If it is shaky or has a dry joint, then try scrapping off the solder and resoldering ok. Power down the pc and then to AC supply to see whether it charges. If it does, then you probably have a corrupt operating system and should be re-installed. If the RAM becomes unstable, it could also come with such a problem. Hence, I suggest too that a confirmed working and compatible memory should be tried on your pc. If all failed then your motherboard is bad and should be replaced. Good luck

Have you tried resetting the BIOS defaults? In doing so, it will force IDE re-detection and often resolve vague boot issues.

The Dell Inspiron 600m will not power up when you press the start button. Battery is fully charged. BLY


Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

If there is still no display, tell me if there is also any lights that flashes on the (numlock, scrolllock, capslock). Hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 600m not starting up!


I had this same problem with my 600m laptop.  How many times do the lights flash, before they stop flashing?

Cause: There is a physical problem with the computer that it is detecting at startup diagnostics.

Solution:
You should have two pieces of RAM installed. Carefully, remove the memory slot cover.  Swap the 2 pieces of memory you have in there (please follow memory installation and removal for laptops to the letter, by never touching any of the electronic contacts and handling the memory from its sides). Make sure, they sit in the slot properly (to the best you can see). Then, place back the memory cover, very carefully, and screw in.  If you see the memory door cover not closing properly, the RAM might be improperly inserted.  Please go back to the swapping of RAM step. :)  

If this didn't work, 1 of the 2 RAM's you have are no longer functioning properly. Please follow the steps to openning the memory door again and remove RAM in "B" slot first.  Then close it and try to start the computer.

If it still doing the same light flashes, open the memory door and remove RAM in slot "A".  then place the RAM you removed from slot "B" into slot "A".  Then start the computer again.

No power


Two things you can do. 1- remove the battery and try starting with the supply only. Dell batteries are notorious for causing a no start. 2- remove the memory and try starting with one chip in one then the other slot, then try the other chip. A bad memory chip can also cause a no start. If these don't correct the problem, then it's going to be with a motherboard component, most likely the power management system. You will need to take it in for a professional diagnostics in order to trace the exact problem area.
