Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
My Dell Laititude Laptop stopped taking a charge(the battery died, I hooked it up to the adapter..it wouldn't turn on or charge). I assumed it was the adapter, bought a new one, tried to charge it..no luck. Any thoughts on what else it could be?
To see if it is something with the charging process..I ..if I was in your place get it to a store...where you bought the battery ..and ask for a charged battery and try it on ..if it do not power up..it means that it is something wrong with the power line of the mother board...or with the CPU ..or the mother board...Remember ..the first time you thought the battery is dead...you should have checked if it opens cause even with no battery at all they have to function when is plugged on the power adapter/charger..if it do not...and it work with a charged battery ..than the charger itself is to blame ...but if both charger and battery are ok ..than is the motherboard ...
When only the cpu is to blame ...the actual lights will light ..the power..(that indicates the curent into the main board) ...and when the battery is in and the charger plugged..the green light that shows the charging process had to be on also..
If no light is on ...you will have to see if a plug on the main board is not accidentally unplugged...or the mini board for the power button ...it may be also unplugged or damaged...(for this one only remove the snapped in cover of the hinges..and take a look on the ribbon that plugs on the main board)
if nothing at all is lighting on the it ...this is either a contact (if you are lucky ..and you can detect the break with a measurement tool for voltage ...just follow the power line in ...after you take it apart ) or is the motherboard itself...and you will have to change it all..cause they are pretty compact..and in this case either buy a new one ...or look for a second hand with the display broke ...or stripped ..and just take the board (this is the cheapest but risky way )..
Let me know what you have done ..and how it behaving ...but to tell you from the start ..if no power light is on...this is the board ..

The lights indicate the current amount of charge on the battery. If all the LED's come on when you press the button, the battery is fully charged. If fewer lights are lit, then the battery is partially charged. If any lights flash, or blink, there could be a problem with the battery.
