I had the same problem which was after dropping the laptop. There is a small pcb which is plugged in under the keyboard near the mouse pad. It had come completely out of its socket and with a bit of fidling i managed to get it back in without removing the palm rest. Think i had to remove the other pcb above it though ?? May have been the vga card ? This fixed mine instantly ;)

Try testing your dc jack.When it was dropped more likely the dc jack is the problem,not getting a charge.Go on ebay and order a jack.

I know it is too late, but it may help to others,
Many Dell C8** have this common issue, which you can fix by pushing memory in a little and see if it starts. Try on 1 stick first. If it helps put something under the memory cover so it'll constantly push memory in. Hope it helps.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
in case you are not able to boot to windows, you can use the password recovery tool that can be downloaded from below link.
download this tool on another computer and it will create a disc.
you need to boot the computer in which the issue is occouring with the disc.

All steps are mentioned in below link as well

D800 will not even boot


Okay, I had that problem with my HP less than a minute ago.

Maybe it is the same problem. See if the battery light comes on. Press the power button again and again if it doesn't start, for some time. It may show the boot screen and hang. Now, the battery must be charged. Shut it down directly and switch the AC off.

Now, switch it on and see if the battery light comes on. If it does, it is the same problem as mine. Now, turn the PC over and remove the battery carefully. There may be switches for that.

Now, plug in the AC and start it without the battery in. If it does, you're done. Now, plug in the battery again.

D600 Power problem, Won't boot up


Hi,

I agree. Try to turn on your computer using the ac adapter only. If the system won't hold power using the ac adapter. I suggest to call you computer manufacturer to check the warranty . I am seeing a problem with the motherboard.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.

Power Cord


The power adaptor is faulty - they are available quite cheaply on ebay. Search using the same part number from your original adaptor to ensure getting the right type.
