Question about Intel Core Duo T2600, 2.16 GHz Core Duo (BX80539T2600) Boxed Processor
When I press the power button on my Dell Inspiron E-1705,
the power light and blue tooth light both come on for 5 seconds and then go
off. No hard drive activity, no beeps no video, no disk drive activity or
lights! I have swapped memory, removed hard drive and tried to boot, used an
external monitor, tried a new power supply and battery, tested both fans for
CPU and video card, reseated everything several times, replaced heat sink
compound (it turned to dust when I removed the cooling coil from the top of the
CPU), replaced mother board, replaced video card, checked for poor ground
The thing died about 3 months after warranty from dell ran out. Is the CPU the only thing left to replace? I am hesitant for obvious reasons ($500) but I don’t know anything left to check. This thing just locked up one morning and I had to hold the power button to power it down. It came back up for an hour or so and powered itself back down. I then backed info up and dumped the op. system, reloaded everything and it ran all day with no problems, noise, or alarms and was running faster then it did out of the box! Then after I got everything back to normal and powered it down and back up, it wouldn’t boot, only after removing all power sources for 18 – 24 hrs. would it boot, but after the dell screen it would just die. No beeps no noise, now it won’t do anything. The power led and blue tooth light up for 5 seconds and then just go off. I have been trouble shooting this thing for 4 months now and am at my braking point. Can someone please help me!?
I am having the same freaking problem. I took out my cpu and looked at it, the side by the last row of pins are blackened a little. it looks like something burnt it up. I am now looking for a new one, but cant find one on ebay., They look pretty cheap though. I think this might be the same problem your having. Anyways email me and if I find out anything else ill let you know, and if you figure out what might cause this let me know.
thanks my email adress is email@example.com

If you have replaced the motherboard I would say it is most likely the CPU. If you had not replaced the m/board I would think it was one of the power chips on the board that sends power to the cpu. If the heat sink compound had turned to dust on the top of the cpu that is certainly not going to help with cooling the cpu down. $500 sounds awful pricey for a CPU. What type and speed is it? May be able to dig one up for you in the basement that will work. At least for testing purposes. Post your type and speed of cpu that will work in your laptop.
