Dell Precision M6300 lights blinking

It won't boot up. It starts to boot, beeps once and the three lights above the keypad, the one on the left solid color, middle one blinks and the one on the right solid color. Then it turns off, what is wrong?

SOURCE: Blinking Lights, Computer Wont Boot

If it's blinking 9 times then it's likely telling you one or more of the RAM sticks are in need of replacement. To check these, remove the laptops power cord and battery, then locate and remove, the cover for the RAM. Remove one chip at a time and try booting the laptop.

SOURCE: Dell Precision M70 PC booting problem

There’s probably an issue with your boot-up files or the hard drive. Suggest you start backing up all your documents, pictures and anything else that you don’t want to lose. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. If no errors are detected, your software has a problem.

If you have a Windows installation CD, you can use the Recovery mode to attempt to fix the problem.

Turn on computer, insert CD into drive.
Press any key to boot from CD
Windows installation process will start
After a few minutes, a screen will come up telling you to hit ENTER to install Windows, or to press R to enter the Recovery Console
Press "R"
You will be asked which operating system
Most times there is only one option, select 1
At command prompt, type "fixboot" and press ENTER, if it asks if you're sure, type "Y" press ENTER again
Then, at command prompt, type "fixmbr" and press ENTER, again, type "Y" and press ENTER if it asks.
Type "exit" and press ENTER to exit recovery console and reboot.

Give that a try and see if it will boot for you.

SOURCE: Battery light blinking red even when charging

Looks like you need a new battery. Same thing happened with a DELL XPS, once the new battery was in place, all was fine.

SOURCE: dell precision m60 press the power button the

You could have a bad peice of memory or a bad memory slot. Pull the memory out and try one peice at a time in each of the two slots. If you only have 1 peice you will need to either borrow a peice of the same memory or buy it. You also could have a shorted battery so pull the battery out if the ram is ok and try to boot. Another idea is the cd rom may have a problem so pull it if the ram and battery are ok. After doing all this if the system will still not boot the motherboard must have a short and needs replacement. This model also had an issue with the power board where the power button is. The connector on the motherboard was poorly designed and very sloppy. Over time it gets worn and causes a similar issue. The temporary cure is to press very hard on the power button to see if it will boot and then leave it running. You can also put pressure on the underneath side around the docking port and press the power button. This issue however requires a new motherboard. The M60 is almost the same as the D800 infact most parts are interchangeable. You could switch out the motherboard to a D800. I refurbish the D600 AND D800'S daily so I am fimilar to this issue. Let me know how you make out. Phil pmgibs1@verizon.net

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

Dell precision m6300 battery won't charge.


You say it's a new battery. Is the battery the same EXACT spec? Some aftermarket batteries don't work well with your laptop. The pin-out/connections may be incompatible. That said, in your BIOS is there a "Battery Learning" section.

M6300, When I push the power botton, the green power light lights up, and for a second the next light lights up ( i think the hard drive light) then goes out to stay out. screen stays black no boot up...


Try taking the battery out of the machine and leave it hooked to the AC power and try it again. It may be that your battery is bad and that is stopping it from booting up.

My m6300 power light blinks 4 orange then 1 green, very quickly. it also hangs on boot.


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

Why is my m6300 not booting up? I installed a new cover and HDD and the screen is blank when I power up. There is a beep and nothing. I removed the BIOS battery and placed it in the new cover before...


Screw you laptop check the RAM remove it and clean with a eraser use another slot of the RAM. Put back the RAM. If the same things happen and no beep.
The cable for the back light inverter board may have come off on the mother board side or on the screen side.

2) Failed inverter board.
3) Failed lamp.
