Dell D600 Power Up Issue

When I plug the ac power into a wall jack the green light goes on but when I plug the adapter into the back of the laptop, the cord powers off. I can't get the laptop to power up either. I have tried removing the battery and powering it up just with the power cord but that doesn't work either.

It seems like when the power cord is put into the laptop, the laptop shorts it out and shuts the power off.

There is a short circuit onnthe laptop motherboard usually it's power ic's that are next to the power socket that block the power from going to other parts so you should change those ic's

You will have to try with a different power supply, it seems to be a faulty transformer. It doesnt have nothing to do with the battery itself

Actually, run a windows repair. That fixes the problem but we don't have a clue what's causing it. (we have this issue with one of our images).

SOURCE: my dell d600 will run on batteries ok. I own 3 ac

Most likely, if 3 different known good AC adapters will not power the system, then there is a problem with the DC in power jack on the motherboard. The easiest fix is a motherboard replacement (about $100 on ebay)

My Dell laptop d600 suddenly shut off and will not power back up....led light on adapter blinks when plugged in...I have tried re-inserting RAM modules but this or nothing else seems to work.. thank you...


Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.

Dell d600 will not power up. When connected to AC power the green led will go out. Is this a jack problem or a internal supply or what???


well, if you try more than one wall outlet and you have that issue, it is possible that you may have a bad plug. you can always buy a power supply at radio shack or best buy. and test it. or the best solution is go to a local computer repair shop, i'm sure they have plugs to try and see if it powers up.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

On the issue with th ebattery on the 1521 inspiron. Took battery out and plugged in still will not power up. Could it be the adapter as well?


On the ac adaptor, look for a green light that will turn on when you plug it into the wall outlet, if its on that means the ac adapter working. If you get a green light on the ac adapter but then the green light goes away when you plug it into the laptop then that means the laptop has a bad motherboard.

If you plug the ac adapter into a wall outlet and get no green light then that means the ac adapter is bad and you would need to get another one.

I have a dell laptop latitude d600 and it will not turn on. the power supply light is on and when u plug it into the computer it turns off and the computer will not turn on and the power supply light goes...


There are 2 possible points of failure here. The AC adapter or the Motherboard. If possible, try a different D-Series AC adapter from a known good system and see if there is any change. Also test your adapter on a known good Dell if possible. If the adapter is the fault, then replace it. If a known good adapter has the same issue, then the motherboard is at fault and needs replacement. Motherboard are about $100 on EBay

I have a Dell D600 (PP05L), its not powering up no lights. I noticed on the power adapter the green light goes out when plugged into ac power. What could be wrong here? please help


Hook up your power adaptor to ac power without it being hooked up to the laptop and see if the green light stays on. If it does then you know your adaptor is okay. if your adaptor is only hooked up to ac power and the green light still turns off then you know your ac adaptor is bad.

Take out the battery from your laptop. Now hook up the ac adaptor to the laptop and if it stays green then you know your battery is bad but you also want to make sure you can get your laptop to turn on. Hopefully it will turn on with only the ac adaptor hooked up to it.

Laptop will not turn on


Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.

If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.

DELL XPS M140 POWER ISSUE


Hi brendanram!

I am claudus_07 and i was a Dell - XPS Technical Support Specialist before so i will be glad to assist you with your concern.

As you said into your post, you tried plugging the AC Adapter to the power source without plugging the other end into the XPS laptop and the Green Light on the adapter is lit. But when you plug the jack on the laptop, the Green light is out. As for my experience on your laptop, there could be a problem with the power supply or the motherboard of your XPS laptop. Because everytime you plug the adapter to the laptop, the green light is going out so it means that the laptop or the adapter is grounded.

Here's what you need you to:

Step 1: Call Dell XPS Technical Support 1-800-624-9896
Step 2: Tell them the issue and the things that youve done.
Step 3: At the end of the troubleshooting, i know that the Technician will either replace the Power Supply, Motherboard, or the Adapter. (if you have a friend that has a Adapter same as yours, you may try to use it just to isolate the issue the Technician will choose from the Power Supply or the motherboard)
Step 4: If the Technician replaces the power supply and the issue still persists, call technical support again and ask them to replace the motherboard, no need to repeat the troubleshooting steps anymore just tell them that youre already done with it. (Dont ask for a system exchange, because i know that they will not give what you want.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks!
I know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.

Good luck and thank you!
