Dell Latitude C610 Laptop won't turn on

My laptop won't turn on. This is with a fully charged battery and/or the power adaptor. When I press the power button all of the lights (3) come on as do the lights on the right hand side (3 if I'm using the power adaptor) but they only remain on for about 3 seconds. The hard drive doesn't seem to be booting up nor does the fan turn on.

I've replaced the hybrid cooling fan and it still comes on and stays on for 3 seconds before powering off.

HELP!!!

My C610 failed in the exact same way within the past 2 weeks. I removed the Hard Drive. In that state if it was a bad hard drive it should still boot up and be able to access the Bios screen. However it won't stay on that long. I think it would be on longer if there was no problem and the RAM was missing.

    Same problem-won't turn on. This is with a fully charged and/or the power adaptor.

The sytem doesn't seem to be booting up nor does the fan turn on.-This happened after my daugter was randomly pressing keys during start up. I interupted the boot up and shut it down-to try to undo what she may have done.

    Same problem

  • jimdavies66 Sep 19, 2008

    I recently removed the hard drive on my c610 in the hope of doing a swap with my daughter's CPX hard drive. Having found the connections are totally different I replaced the hard drive and found it does not even boot to bios. I get the lights on the right come on for a few seconds, together with a flashing in the middle (looks like a padlock, with an A in the middle), and then powers down.



    Any solutions gratefully accepted.

If the light comes on for three seconds and then go out ,generally means a power distrubution problem . remove the optical drive and memory from the system and try powering it on. If u get the same result , its time to take it to service tech , as your motherboard needs to be checked

SOURCE: Dell Latitude C610 Laptop won't turn on

i've been bummed with this laptop.

same thing happens to me - except all my lights come on for a split second then only the power light stays on underneath the monitor - which is black - and nothing else shows any sign of being turned on.

also..
the f, z, n, and some other key are broken.
well - they work, but only after several hard hits.

Just want to know how to tell if a Dell Latitude C610 battery is dead


Hello,

With dell laptops, there should be buttons near the led lights.

Check the battery charge by pressing the status button or image on the battery near the LED's.
Note: 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.


Hope this helps...

Dell laptop wont turn on. battery only works if it is already charged and it doesn't run on A/C power.


It means that is something wrong, most surely with te AC/DC adaptor. Try with other compatible adaptor or take the laptop to service.

Won't turn on. Battery is plugged in and lit. n


Try removing your battery pack. Then connect the power adaptor (even without the battery) and connect is directly to the power outlet. If it powers up, then the battery pack might be defective or totally drained.

If the battery is just totally drained, simply place the battery to the laptop. Do not turn the laptop on. Plug the power adaptor to the laptop and plug it to the power source. If you see that the charging LED is blinking in your laptop, then just leave it charging up to 5 to 8 hours.

Never use a laptop on battery mode while it is plugged in to a power source. This is the number 1 reason why laptop batteries don't last longer.

BATTERY WON´T CHARGE ON DELL C600


It is possible the battery where the contacts from the laptop fit into or the gold colored contacts themselves need to be repaired. Worst case, the spill short circuited the contacts on the board, in which case you will have to replace the board. I would suggest really cleaning the gold contacts on the laptop and the small slots on the battery itself with a Q-tip with a little bit of rubbing alcohol on it. Please make sure both areas are totally dry before reassembling the battery.

Good Luck,

BATTERY PROBLEMS?


Hi

Latitude D620 battery module has a battery charge tester. First remove the battery or turn the laptop over and press the battery icon and the note the battery LED indication.

If there is no LEDs lite, shut down the laptop, connected the power Adaptor, install the battery and check if the battery charge LED lites up.

If it doesn't double check the power Adaptor. Latitude D620 is rated to use a 90W Adaptor. There is a 60W Adaptor (looks very similar to) but this is for other Latitudes and AMD Vostro systems.

If the Adaptor has the correct rating, then check below for more info;

1) [Very Likely] The battery may be faulty or end-of-life and needs replacing. Check the battery connector on the Latitude and battery itself for any broken or bent pins or bits.

2) [Possible] You have the wrong power Adaptor or the Adaptor is faulty. This however would not explain why the battery is undetected.

Start up the Latitude into System BIOS (F2). Under System > Battery information check the battery and AC Adaptor status

If the Latitude D620 has warranty you may open a warranty claim with Dell Support.
