Please remove the Battery from the system. Try to turn on the system only using the AC power. If it turns on fine, then you need to check your Battery. To check your Battery, you will find a small button which is known as the status button . It is located on the Battery. Press and hold that button for few seconds and check for the LEDs on the Battery. If all lights does not blink together, you need to get your Battery replaced.

Hi, i have dell inspiron 8600. It is working at 600 mhz but the processor speed is 1.6 ghz. The intel speed step utility is also enabled in the setup. Kindly help


The Intel SpeedStep Technology dynamically changes processor speed to help prolong battery life. If you want it to run at 1.6GHz all the time, you will have to disable it in setup.

Inspiron 8600 does not charge batteries. Power


hello

As you have mentioned that power supply is working fine then there can be only two things.

  1. Your charging module in the mother board is malfunctioning.And you cannot replace a particular module, you have to replace whole motherboard for it.If your system is under warranty Dell will do it for free.
  2. The connector which connects the battery with the mother board is gone.
hope this will solve your problem

Thank you.

Inspiron 8600 won't stay on for more than 3-4 seconds


Plugged up or on battery power? Battery: try removing battery and see if it does it. If it does, have the laptop serviced, could be a loose or damaged component. If it powers up and stays on without the battery, replace the battery.
