The ten blinks is the Dell Error Code for RAM problems. Your laptop's RAM is easily accessible. Usually, your laptop will have 2 sticks of RAM in 2 slots just under a small black cover with 2 screws on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes, 1 stick will go bad and cause the laptop to be unable to boot up. By taking out both sticks and only putting one back each time, you can often find the culprit. One stick will run the laptop just fine and one won't let it start at all. It's also possible that both have gone bad and you may end up having to buy at least one new one (stick of RAM) to make sure.
In these circumstances, most laptop repair guys (like me) would also take out and reseat the hard drive, wireless card, dvd/cd player as well.
If you haven't done this sort of thing before, find a friend who has or study the your laptop's Service Manual at the Dell Support site and decide whether you're ok with trying yourself. Don't go purely by the manual alone. Google every procedure you're going to try and find forums where others explain little tricks to look out for.
Hi, try pressing the ESC key during bootup, this will allow you to boot in safe mode, from where you can reset your operating system to a time before the problem started. If this dosn't help come back to me for help on re installing operating system.
I am sure Not the CPU or fan problem. Follow the below step to repair it.
1. Just press the power button 5 seconds or more to see the laptop can reboot or not.
2. replug the memory modules.
3. maybe the power supply device failed that the electronic volt is not enough to boot the laptop. Just replace a new Dell latitude d600 battery power supply.
I wouldn't. In theory, it could install it with enough HDD space, but in practice it would not be productive, would no doubt take more than 5mins just to boot up, and God knows how long to open any program. Id upgrade to something from at least 2004/2005 then install windows 7 on that, something with at least 2gb of RAM. Hope this helps in some way
