DELL 600M AC POWER CORD

My wife's computer received the message that the power cord that was attached was not charging the battery, but would only supply power to the computer. I figured that the cord must be damaged, so I bought another one (on ebay) to fix. This kind of fixed the problem because it now charges the computer, but I still get the message on startup. Now, 1 month later, the computer won't even recognize the cord anymore and the computer battery is now dead. The charger is showing a green light to indicate that it is on, but I am not sure if there is power coming out of the end or there is something wrong with the port for the plug. Any suggestions?

The internal power supply of your PC is broken, it needs to be serviced.

Plug in ac adaptor to Dell inspiron 600m and does


Sounds like you have a broken DC Power jack. This is where the small socket where you attach the AC adaptor breaks loose from the motherboard , resulting in the laptop not charging properly or at all . If you have to wiggle the power jack to get a connection then this is definately theproblem.

Most computer reapir shops can do this for about $100. Or if your handy with a soldering iron and dont mind disassembling the laptop , you can always buy a new DC jack for your make and model off ebay and try to solder it yourself!

The Dell Inspiron 600m will not power up when you press the start button. Battery is fully charged. BLY


Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

If there is still no display, tell me if there is also any lights that flashes on the (numlock, scrolllock, capslock). Hope this helps

Dell 600m won't power from ac


It could be the charging port is loose or has gone bad outrightly. If it is shaky or has a dry joint, then try scrapping off the solder and resoldering ok. Power down the pc and then to AC supply to see whether it charges. If it does, then you probably have a corrupt operating system and should be re-installed. If the RAM becomes unstable, it could also come with such a problem. Hence, I suggest too that a confirmed working and compatible memory should be tried on your pc. If all failed then your motherboard is bad and should be replaced. Good luck

Dell 600m Laptop Killing batteries


If you are using known good batteries, and you have the most current BIOS Flash, then it is likely a failure of the charging curcuit on the motherboard. The flashing Amber (Some people see it as red) led indicates a failed battery

The Multiple good batteries, I assume have been recently purchased, because computer batteries are consumable and are rated for 300 to 500 charging cycles before they wear out.

I replaced my 700m motherboard with one from Ebay for about $170.00 about a year ago.
