Question about Dell Precision M60 Notebook
I'm wondering if my computer is done for. When I push the power button nothing happens except that the caps lock light lights blinks ten times. Is there anything I can do?
This is a memory problem, most likely. Try swapping the SIMs or putting them in one a time.
If you only have the one SIM, see if you can borrow someone elses

I had same problem with my M60, tried solution #2 "pushing down on the right side of the solver bar" to the right of the power button and bingo! my dead machine booted up.
As the guy says it must be a loosce connection.
Crazy but it worked, a bit like doing CPR on your laptop!! many thanks

I had this problem with my laptop. I figured that some of the connections were loose. I cant tighten them but I figured that if you push down on the right of the silver bar and press the power then it should work.
Hope I've helped.

I had the same problem and solution one is the fix. I remove one of the memory modules and the system boots up fine.

Itd gertting power of some kind but the boot post is not happening so it could be curtains but check the output at the plug to see if the mains adapter is pushing out the correct voltage

Without battery connected it wont work. Better buy a new batterry connect it and plug it for charging for 8Hrs conitnuosly without switching on the laptop.

Your power supply is probably dying. You can bring it in to a pc shop and have them test it or you can test it yourself with a psu tester like one of these:
