Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Will not POST
Worked at 1:00pm powered down than at 4:00pm would not power up. In between times computer just sat on desk.
Pressing power button & F12 key at same time causes battery light (right side) to come on RED & fan to run for about 10-15 secs than it turns off.
Tried removing battery run on charger same result
When pressing power button (Cap,Num.lock,scrol lock lights) along with HDD light on far right side come on for 2-4 secs than go off.
Removed memory,HDD,cd drive same result
What else can I try & have you ever heard of this problem before.
I had similar problem on a used D600 I bought. Would power up when cold, but not boot immediately after shutting down (would restart okay). Indicator lights (3) and power light came on for a few seconds then all went off. Found what seems to work at another site. Not a fix, but a workaround: Hold F7 and F8 while pressing the power button. Like magic. Still, Caps Lock, Num Lock and 3rd light (scroll lock?) have been and still are non-responsive most of the time, but I can live with that. Hope this helps someone.

You can try to replace the motherboard, which is apparently totally UnHappy
