    I have a dell d600 that just stopped working. I was using it on battery and got the notification that the battery was low so I plugged in the adapter and continued on. About 5 minutes later the unit simpy went dark. Now nothing works at all. No leds or any signs of life with or without battery, ac adapter. Feels like a blown fuse if there is one.

    Same problem. I was preparing the unit to sell and it wouldn't connect to the internet. I turned it on edge to look at one of the ports and there was a snapping sound. From then on, it was lights out. The power lights come on, whether on battery or ac, and then the unit clicks off after a second or so. It's running (when it runs) Windows 2000.

You can get a brand new adapter (not dell but brand new works great) on ebay ; I paid approx $20 for mine for dell d600.
Just type in ac adapter dell d600 in search box on or just ac adapter dell laptop on same site, you are better off w buy it now or make offer then bidding.

Dell 600m manual

easy fix. If you are requesting a manual go to dell's support website and view or download it. If you want a wireless card for the D600M try the guys at:

They can fix it and ship it back to you by fedex or ups. Also you could just opt to put a usb wireless card on the laptop, that way you don't have to go inside to replace the internal wireless card. I think the 600M also has a slot for a PCMIA card that can attach wirelessly.

My laptop battery won't charge

I can think of two options.
Find someone with the same power supply and see if that corrects the issue.
Or, find a known good working battery and see if your two are bad.
Batteries are made all over the world and have lots of recalls. Power supply cards that are taken care of are sold with the used PC's, if you see where I'm going.

Good luck.

It is most likely the DC connector. Take it off the system board and clean the solder joints, then replace it.

Not power up after electric went off

Try replugging everything and turning your powerstrip on and off. If that doesn't work then it probably shorted out.

Hi, try taking out the battery and see what happens.
It may be that when the charge port was short circuited it may have damaged the PSU. Do you have another one to try or may be borrow one from a friend who has a similar Dell Laptop.

Give this a try and let me know.

with DELL bios updates, if you type "bios_name.exe /JABIL" this forces
the flash to overwrite whatever BIOS you have. This probably only works
for JABIL-made motherboards (which Dell uses)You may want to
google search for "force flash bios update" and the name of your BIOS and/or chipset.

There are 2 possible points of failure here. The AC adapter or the Motherboard. If possible, try a different D-Series AC adapter from a known good system and see if there is any change. Also test your adapter on a known good Dell if possible. If the adapter is the fault, then replace it. If a known good adapter has the same issue, then the motherboard is at fault and needs replacement. Motherboard are about $100 on EBay
