Question about Intel Core Duo T2600, 2.16 GHz Core Duo (BX80539T2600) Boxed Processor

2 Answers

Laptop will not power up!

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 locations! Nothing!
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 daddyforty@yahoo.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.

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.


Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

Does my 1550 have blue tooth


Here's a rundown of what you don't get in the Inspiron 1501 that comes standard with the Inspiron 1505, I am assuming yo did a typo with the 1550
  • No dedicated media buttons on the front
  • No Dell Media Direct software feature
  • No FireWire port
  • No S-Video port
  • 3-in-1 card reader instead of 5-in-1
  • No internal Bluetooth option
But if yours is the 1501 then just buy a $7 blue tooth doogle that slots into your usb then your bluetooth problem is solved.

Delll Inspiron 2200 Laptop does not power on


You have all the simpthoms of an overheating laptop.
For starters, get a vacuum and **** all the dirt from the fan or fans on the back/ bottom of your laptop.
Then turn on your laptop. It should stay longer than 5 seconds.
If this solves your problem, then you are lucky.
If not, you'll need to have your laptop serviced, and clean the heat sink, and have reapplied the heat transfer compund on the processor.

Not a big deal, and not that expensive either.

If this answer helps, please don't forget to rate.
