    The clicking in sync with the lights is probably a short that keeps
    opening and closing. Most likely problem is the motherboard. I need hands on to be sure as anyone would.

If you hear the hard disk clicking, most likely you have a faulty hard drive.
Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS has detected the hard disk, if not this means the hard disk is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To determine if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and connect it to an US hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an external hard disk/external storage device and you can open the various folders and files then the hard drive is OK.
If the hard drive is not detected then it is faulty and you need a replacement hard disk and Windows needs to be installed on this drive to get the Dell operating again.

Dell latitude 10 st2 e wont boot


Hi voyagerbooks,

Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30 sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer.

    If the computer doesn't turn on then check if the computer gives any series of beeps or if there are any diagnostics LEDs shown on it.

    Thanks and Regards.
    Kiran Kumar.

This could indicate a bad battery. Try removing the battery and powering on the laptop. If the power LED remains white then you have a problem with the charging circuit. That means your battery could be defective or the battery charging circuit on your motherboard is faulty.

remove all attached devices like printers or flash drives. remove battery and power on using ac adapter only. if it still wont work, try another good ac adapter. make sure ac adapter light is on. if it still shows the power light on and nothing else, replace motherboard.

Battery light on dell latitude d410 continously flashes yellow/orangish. Does this indicate a bad battery. Works fine with cord plugged in.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

Dell latitude d600 doesn't turn on


The test Dell advises to narrow down this issue is to remove the battery, hard drive, ram, and optical drive.  Next plug in the a/c power cord and you should get some LED's coming on. If not it points to the motherboard.
