Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I discharged(accidentally) the battery and the computer will not power up. I purchased a replacement battery. The green charge light showing the battery charging is on(not flashing) after inserting with the power supply plugged in. I press the power on button and nothing happens, except the green charge light goes out for a few seconds and then comes back on. Does the solid green light indicate the battery is fully charged? Any ideas on why the laptop won't power up? I've tried resetting the hd and the memory chips.
The D600 is plagued with power up problems for 2 reasons. First the connector on the motherboard to the power button is very sloppy and after awile it breaks contact. If you put pressure under the docking port area and press the power button it may start. The second is the memory slots. I know you said you replaced the memory, but it is the slot that is a problem. Remove the memory and put 1 chip in "A", then press down on the chip while trying to boot the laptop. If this works then get a peice of foam or pad and place it on the chip. When you put the cover back on it will push down on the chip and should boot. Repeat this process for "B".
The green light does signify a charged battery! This is also a possible reason for not booting. Remove the battery and try to boot with only the power supply. A shorted battery will stop the laptop from starting up.
If all of this does not help then remove the battery and the CD Rom, then try to boot. Finaly if nothing helps you should buy a new Laptop or a used one on E Bay. You could get a used D600 on E Bay that has a good motherboard for cheap money and use your drives and LCD. I work on D600 and D800 all the time. Let me know how you make out!
