    I tried to plug up the notebook, but the light flashes off then back off. someone gave it to a family member, and I would like to know what steps I need to take to try and troubleshoot for any kind of service.

    I have the same problem. Put in a different hard drive and still it switches off after the first Dell screen appears. What is wrong?

    Bought a used Dell Latitude C800. Used a couple of hours and after I logged off I can no longer turn the thing off. Seriously, have apparently lost Windows XP and the files I put in. I have no screen picture and would appreciate any ideas. I usually use Linux on a desktop but have used XP before.

    My old Dell laptop Latitude CPx went into "safe mode" and I can't find out what's wrong.

First changing the memory chip in computer. Memory chip may have gone bad or wrong memory chips were placed, if received computer with problem. Second try reformating or replacing hard drive (if you hear a clicking noice and then laptop powers off then this can be a sign that your hard drive is defective). Hope this helps, Ed.

I had the same problem. I had a bad system board. I changed it and it powers up fine. My suggestion, get a new one from Dell. I got a reconditioned on from ebay that worked well for about 2 weeks. Now the LCD only stays on for 5 minutes at a time.

Dell lattitude cpx charging pin and - TERMINALS


What? Is it time to wake up?

Oh yeah, Dell Latitude CPX,

http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Latitude-Notebook-650-MHz-Pentium/dp/B00005UJYF

AC adapter example for above,

http://www.prontocharger.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=d1161

DC Power Jack example,

http://www.all-power-jack.com/Dell/Dell-Latitude-CPx.html

I see the dilemma. The plug from the AC adapter has 3 socket holes, and the DC Power Jack has 3 prongs.

DC electricity has a Positive connection, and a Negative connection.

To find out which socket holes are for Positive, and Negative, let's look again at the DC Power Jack,

http://www.all-power-jack.com/Dell/Dell-Latitude-CPx.html

The Top view shows the jack upside down, and turned around. (In relation to how it mounts on the motherboard )

The bottom left view shows the jack primarily how it sits, (Mounted), on the motherboard.

The bottom right view shows the jack turned over, laying on it's front.
Also laying over to it's right side.

Note the three prongs. (Flat bladed pins )
The one in the middle is Positive.
The two outer prongs are Negative.

Looking at the bottom Left view, the Top prong is Positive, and the two bottom prongs are Negative.

Match it up to the plug on the AC adapter cable.

Going to test the Voltage coming out? (20 Volts)
The red Positive probe lead goes into the top socket hole, in the plug.
The black Negative lead goes in either bottom socket hole.

What if I'm wrong?

A Digital multimeter will just show a negative value. -20
An Analog multimeter's needle will go down towards the 0, instead of towards 20 Volts. (DC)

Just switch the probe leads around.

For additional questions, or if I am way off base, post back in a Comment.

Regards,

My headphone jack is broken on my Dell Latitude Cpx J & i have no sound through my speakers because of this. Is their a way i can change something in the settings so the sound plays through my laptop...


It is a mecanical problem, not in settings. The laptop's headphone jacks have builted-in switches that disconnect internal speackers when the headphone jack is plugged in. You need to replase headphone jack with a new one or manually desactivate the swith - must to get ino your laptop and have skills in work with soldiering iron
