Re: Laptop power switch

It is unlikely you will find the switch (component) to replace (unless you get another laptop for parts) and yes, you would have to solder
BUT take it apart and see if the switch is part of a module, if so you may be able to get it by calling Dell support or find it on another site. write down any part# you find if it is a module and google it.
when I say module I mean a part that plugs in

hope this helps
thanks for rating

My Dell D505 Latitude will not power up. The 3 green lights flash for less than a second and then it switches off. It was working fine until a few days ago. Any ideas of how to fix this as all my work is...

Sounds like ether a blown power supply. That happens when the laptop battery has alittle juice left.

Try to take out the battery from the bottom and plug the laptop in the wall. If the laptop powers up you battery needs to be replaced. If it doesn't power up, you need to replace the power supply.

Good Luck,

I got a dell latitde d505 wont power on or anthing no blinking lights no noises. i plug it into the charger n the charger light goes off. can some1 please help me??

Sounds like you may have fried your dell latitude. I have seen many laptop's fry and it is nothing you did, but they just go sometimes.

Take the battery out of the laptop.
Plug the charger in.
Hold the power button for a minimum 10 secs (which will reset the power options)
If there are still no lights than it is your cpu
If the computer turns on then you have a bad battery.

When batteries are bad or dead, the computer tries to run off of the battery befor the charger, it switches over to the charger after your OS has booted. In that case you can just order a new one no big deal, but if your cpu is fried then there is no hope for the laptop. :( I have lost four laptops because of this, so for your sake I hope its the battery or the GND Drain.

Also possible that the GND's drain on your board is too short and Gate 4 is driving low. To fix this you have to remove a SMT ceramic cap, which is located opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. A couple of Dell Latitude d505 have had this problem and can easily be fixed, but must be cautious and know what you are doing. I would advise seeing a professional.

Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

How do you reset the latitude d505 to factory settings

How to reset the latitude d505 to factory settings:

If you have Windows XP,

Step 1: Backup everything that is important to you.
Step 2: Boot your computer using the Windows installable CD.
Step 3: Format your harddisk or repartition it.
Step 4: Install Windows XP using the installable CD.

Don't try this if you are not sure of what you are doing. It won't damage your laptop, but you might require a long time to get your laptop working again.

My dell d505 latitude laptop has the dreaded

Sounds like your battery is dead. They go bad in laptops and need to be replaced in a couple years.

1) Unplug your battery and power laptop on with just AC adaptor. If laptop runs normal then you need to replace battery.

2) If it doesnt turn on at all then your motherboard may have a problem. The power supply is integrated on MB on most/all laptops.

2) if you need a motherboard replacement, try

Dell Latitude D505

Yes it is. If you are competent with a fine tipped soldering iron it is quite easy.

The part is generally available from any good electronics component supplier.

Take care if you do it yourself as there may also be some fine board traces in or around the socket that could be damaged if you are not careful.

If you are not comfotable and need ethernet on that laptop consider a USB to CAT5/ETERNET adaptor

No power at all for my Dell Latitude D505

Sounds Like From Your Description That You Need Your DC Jack Repaired/Replaced..

THe DC Jack Is the Port where Your AC Adapter Plug Plugs into on the laptop.... THis can be proprietary or non proprietary.... But Either way, the Old Faulty Jack Needs To Be Desoldered and Removed, THe Board Cleaned and a New DC Jack Soldered On.. You Will Then Be able To Power On Laptop With AC Charger and Will again Be Able To CHarge The Battery..

DELL D505 laptop on off switch

Usually Ebay is where I get most of the parts I need. I couldn't find anything on the power switch, however I did find Motherboards with the power switch attached and complete machines that don't run. If you can get either at a decent price this may be the way to go. That way you have spare parts for your machine in the future. The first link is for the motherboards, and the second you'll find the nonworking machines. You can also check computer shops in your area that sell and service used machines.
