Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Starbucks VS Dell Latitude = Starbucks 1, Dell 0

My ferret knocked over my coffee while I was out of the hotel. Some coffee went on/in keyboard. Computer was on at the time. After draining liquid out and drying off only the green charging light will come on and the 'on' button does nothing.

HELP!!!!

Thanks,

Rebecca

    Thanks for the tip about pulling the harddrive - would never have thought of that. No sugar, just plain ol' black coffee....

    The power-up light isn't even coming on either on AC or battery now. Guess it's FedEx time.

    Thanks for the reply though -- and thanks again for the harddrive tip.

I'll try to help. Does the 'on' button act the same as always? Does it feel different?

Do you take a lot of sugar in your coffee? I'm not kidding! The 'coffee syndrome' is hard on keyboards and anything else not sealed up. Sugar will stick keys and buttons, that can be cleaned and unstuck. Water can cause more harm.

In other words, there is a chance that you'll be OK. But it sounds like a trip to the factory otherwise. Pull your hard drive if you have to send it. Best of luck.

How do I get my keyboard to work on my Latitude 3440 by Dell? It just quit working.


Try restarting in recovery mode. If that does not solve it try an external keyboard. This may not fix it but you will know where the problem is.

The Keyboard is fault down one track. You could plug in a usb keyboard as a temporary measure or buy a replacement off ebay for about £25.00, its quite easy to replace the keyboard.

PC CARD WONT WORK


Sounds as though theres no power getting to the card if theres no light on it - the dell 6XX series has a weakness in the PCMCIA connector too - it can easily flex and seperate from the socket on the motherboard over time and especially in transit. I wouldnt suggest trying to fix it yourself but dell will send someone out to fix it if its under warranty or for a small fee if not. hope this helps

This is a rather old question, but the solution might still be helpful to other readers.

I suggest you call Tech Support at Dell...

Several years ago, I worked on many Dell CPx 500 models in my work place. There was an issue that always involved a series of 4 or 5 keys (they were always the same keys) that would quit working and we had attempted to purchase new keyboards to fix the issue. It turned out, the real solution was to replace the 'motherboard' of the Latitude notebook!

Dell had knowledge about the keyboard/motherboard issue that we didn't know.
