Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Hello, I attempt to turn on my computer and it does as follows: I press the on button, it acts like it's going to turn on and then it suddenly shuts down. What's the problem?
Its hard to answer based on the available information. Basically it could be a number of things.
ie. the RAM is faulty, the first thing it reads from the OS tells it to shutdown due to some malicious software etc. etc...
Can you try to boot to the bios? If you can do the diagnostics to see if there are any hardware problems.
Also, you may want to see if you can put in a bootable disk to see if it works. I suggest you use the recovery disk that came with the laptop.

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems
computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating
also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
hope it helps
