    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.

My sony vaio eb (e series) wont turn on, the power button flashes green! PLEASE HELP!


test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

Remove the main battery and press power, sometimes this will solve the problem. If not, remove one stick of ram and power on, if not remove the second one and replace the first and try again. If no result it is probably a motherboard issue.

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.

Try to do a complete power drain by doing the following:
1.Remove the power cable.
2.Remove the battery.
3.Press and hold the power button for at least 10-15 sec to drain all remaining power stored in the board.
After this, try plugging the power cable without the battery and turn on the computer. Check if the computer will respond. Put the battery back.
