The power adaptor is faulty - they are available quite cheaply on ebay. Search using the same part number from your original adaptor to ensure getting the right type.

Try another Cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs as the Original. Both Batteries are good? Both Cord/Chargers are good, same power specs. DC volts and Milliamps?

I have dell c840. Suddenly only the left most light of the three lights gets orange when power is switched on and then there is no activity and screen remains blank. Bty light when plugged in also remain...


hello

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

Dell latitude d600 doesn't turn on


The test Dell advises to narrow down this issue is to remove the battery, hard drive, ram, and optical drive.  Next plug in the a/c power cord and you should get some LED's coming on. If not it points to the motherboard.

My Dell Latitude C400 does not power on. I bought a new power cord and battery and it still does not power on. Is it unsalvageable?


Do you see a green charging light when you plug it in?
If not, i would reccmond scraping it for parts and sell it on ebay, craigslist or somewhere else.

Power supply issues or notebook problem?


It's a pretty common problem (Power pin failure). The pins/sockets are poorly designed and poorly constructed. The day-in and day-out jerking and pulling on the cable causes the failure.

This video talks about using a cable retention device to stop the problem. I have tried the product and it works really well.
