    I think I've got the same problem with a used D600 that I bought a few years ago: whether hot or cold, when I power up, the Power button and three keyboard status lights go on for a few seconds before shutting off. I replaced the battery but no success. One time in frustration I gave it a couple of slaps (it responds best when held on knee with left hand and spanked lightly on the right front corner!) while in the power up cycle and the darn thing started! I have been doing this now for a couple of years (though I only use the laptop occassionally) and though it always starts, I worry about it getting tired of the abuse and quiting altogether!

    Any ideas on an inexpensive fix?

    Thanks

Have had this problem several times - apparently these D600's are junk! Not to mention being SLOWER THAN CHRISTMAS when they do boot up! Every time I've had this problem, I just removed and re-seated the memory and hard drive and that usually gets 'em going again.

If the processor, ram and motherboard are working, there will be a display on the screen, check the processor, ram and motherboard through troubleshoot.
first: get working processor and ram then remove the ones in your system and then install the new ones, the display is on the screen, troubleshoot the removed processor and ram to find the bad one.

Sharp Mebius won't boot


I suggest that you remove the battery and use the charger only in turning on your computer. If it turns on just fine without the battery then you would need to replace the battery. If it doesn't then it's either the motherboard or the charger which has a problem.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

Screen is frozen on 1 of page 4 of books. Battery is fully charged and a book is highlighted. Nothing happens and can't shut it down or do anything with it. Reset won['t work.


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Also you might try
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
hope this helps

My UPS does not start


I'm guessing that during the power outage, the ups battery completely discharged. Now it will take about 14-15hrs to recharge it.It will not support any devices until it is fully charged. Remove all load devices and let the battery restore to full charge before re-connecting the devices. If the battery does not recover, it needs to be replaced.
