pressing power on button should be for 30 to 40 sec but the flashing lights means there is a hardware problem can find flashing light codes on the net you could try removing ram 1 by 1 c if that works hope this helps if not will keep an eye on this
from the web - 1 Removed the battery 2 Removed the AC power 3 Plugged in the AC power again Note:- At this point the light from flashing amber light to solid green indicating AC Power 4 Plugged in the Battery Note:- Solid green AC power light and Amber charge light
This is directly from the User Manual: If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows: â€¢ Solid green: The battery is charging. â€¢ Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged. If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows: â€¢ Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off). â€¢ Flashing orange: The battery charge is low. â€¢ Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
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!
Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.
If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.
