Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook

1 Answer

Hardware problem, notebook is not booting

I have dell latitude D505. It is a new and it was not used few years. I plugged it in power (220v) and after 20 minutes I turned it on, and it was working, configuring windows xp for first time, creating users …. In one moment I heard something like some relay switched of something and Notebook stopped to work. Now when i press power button, the screen does not turn on. The fan doesn’t run. I think that motherboard is not booting. Only numberlock, capslock and power led are flashing few seconds, and after that everything is turned off.

Could well be a RAM slot failure.. Try running on 1 stick of RAM and swapping the Mods around..

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,

Latitude d505 won't display image through projector. Being used with Sanyo plc XU41 and Promethean board. Board is interactive but no help if there is no image to see! Other Dell laptops work with this...


Dell laptops normally have a 3-way toggle for the display destination: 1=screen 2= external display and 3=Both. To toggle from one mode to the next press hold the 'FN' key (lower left corner of the Key board), and the briefly press the 'F8' key. Wait a few seconds for the hardware to catch up and you should see a display through the projector. If not, repeat the 'Fn' + 'F8' combo again.

You could also try running diagnostics to verify that teh video card is working properly. To do that, sthar with the laptop off. Hold the 'Fn' key down while you press the power button. Release both as the machine begins to boot up. It should start in diagnostics mode. Run the quick test and watch for the color bars. If you see then, the video card so=huold be OK.

Good luck, And please let me know how it turns out for you.

Have you tried the other fix? It often times works.
Remove the battery AND the power cord.
Hold the power button for 10 seconds.
Now plug in the power cord.

Magic should happen

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..
