Question about Dell Latitude CPI Notebook
I got a DELL Latitude CPi A Series off ebay as unknown if works or not. I got the AC Adapter in today for it and awaiting the HDD Caddy. The laptop power lights come on but no fan and no display come on. After about 2sec. the power light switches over to the battery light. I think that it is shutting off. I don't think its the RAM. Because if it didn't have a hard drive or memory it still would power on showing the DELL logo on screen and then go to a black screen saying No operating system found. Other than that this looks brand new, no scratches or anything. Thanks...
Something to try would be to re-seat the ram and harddrive.
just take them out and then put them back in and try again. I would try with the battery out and just the ac power plugged in.
Being that it was bought off eBay, realistically it probably got banged around a little bit. Sometimes if one of the devices are not making a real good contact it can cause these problems. I have also seen bad batteries cause this problem.
This is not necessarily going to fix your problem, but it has occasionally worked for me in the past and it is a very quick and free thing to try.
