Either the motherboard or the ac adapter might be ba. Make sure the outlet your plugging the laptop into has power first.

Once you verify that then try using the AC Adapter and see if that works. If it doesn't work and it only turns on from the battery for 30 seconds then you need to try a new AC Adapter and see if that fixes it, if it doesn't then its a motherboard issue at that point cause the means its not seeing the AC Adapter properly.

My laptop shut down and wont come back on

Remove main battery and try again, if no! remove ram memory one at a time and test each, if still nothing! the DC jack is a common source of trouble, at this point the laptop must be dismantled to address the motherboard, I recommend a technician to take it to the next step.

Booting up issue

Does it do this with the mains charger connected or only on battery power?

The plugging in the mains charger if not already, wait a couple of minutes and then try switching it on.

If the boots up fine you more than likely have a battery problem.

If it still doesn't start then you either have a power supply problem on the laptop itself or your main charger is faulty and not charging the battery.

You can also remove the battery and try booting it with only the mains charger connect.

The unit turns itself on and off every 30 seconds. The screen displays hello and then 30 seconds says off and then a 30 second pause. What can I do?

This is a shut down due to an error in the system and is related to the malfunction of the main drives or the optical units.
You need to check the loading and drive sections, check the power to the main board/ processing section. Some times a fault in the mother board can result in such a shut down and will require a flow chart check up.
Take consensus without tampering.

My Dell Laptop D610 wont turn on. It was on, I

Turn off laptop, Remove the battery and the power cable and press the power button for about 30 seconds.

Check for light on AC adapter.
Try with battery alone. Try with AC adapter alone.

Try with a different adapter of the same kind.

else the issue could be with the main board for which I would request you to contact the manufacturer.

Powers up for 1 to 2 seconds shuts itself off

probably a boot loop, hold down the f8 key when you turn it on untill you see a boot menu and select "safe mode", if you can get it to start there, you should be able to shut it down and have it start normaly the next time. if not hold down f8 again and select "last known good configuration". if it still continues to loop after that, you will have to reinstall windows.

Powering down by itself. I have changed all the power options to never turn off but it still will shut down. It doesn't seem to be any time either. It can be 3mins or 30 mins. I do notice that my battery...

Remove the battery, see if it still shuts down. If it does not shut down when the battery is removed, than you can pretty much decide that the battery or the interface between the battery and the main board is the problem. If it still shuts down when there is no battery, and just plugged in via the power adapter, than it's either the power adapter, or the interface with the main board. Also, in "power options", make sure that "enable hibernation", and "standby" are NOT checked.
