Question about Dell Precision M6300 Notebook
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?

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.

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.

SOURCE: Dell M70 laptop won't boot up
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
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
