Boot up failure - Dell D600 Latitude

My laptop fails to bootup -- a blank screen and a blinking center light ("A").

I have tried running the diagnostic test with the battery removed but it either hangs up before the test even starts or there is no boot up sequence at all.

    That seemed to help. I tried running the Express Test but it is hung up 42% of the way through: Stuck on System Memory (Test = MATS). The keyboard is not responsive, so I plan to try again.

    I tried reseating the memory chip. The boot up was clean but the laptop froze when I tried to execute a program. Any ideas?

My dell latitude d600 does not boot but blinks both caps and numlock and goes off


Remove the hard disk and try to boot in the BIOS. If you can't then you have a hardware fault - most likely the motherboard has failed. Try to find a replacement and put it in.

My d600 will not bootup. i press f2 or it goes to a blank screen with a blinking line. what order do i put my boot order in so it will reboot


I usually put them in this order.
1. CD/DVD
2. Floppy Drive
3. Hard Drive
If your computer does not boot this way put the original operating disk in and try to boot from CD.
If your machine boots with the CD you can try to repair your operation system.

I'm getting a stop error code 0X000000ED,0X86714368, 0X0000006, it's on a Dell Latitude D600 laptop?


Unmountable boot volume indicating that the system cannot successfully read the boot sector of the hard drive.
Run the diagnostics on the hard drive, if it fails, replace the hard drive.
If diags pass, boot to the recovery console, run chkdsk /r If it still gives the error after that, you can try reinstalling windows.
If that fails to resolve, then again, replace the hard disk drive

UNABLE TO BOOT DELL D600 - FAILURE TO DETECT HARD DISK


If you press F12 during bootup, you should get the boot menu. Run the hard disk diagnostic. If the hard disk is bad, you will get a DST Short Test Error code.

Replacing the hard disk in a D600 is a piece of cake though so if you need a new HD, it's easy to do. The tedious work will come afterward.

Screen goes blank at start up


Its failing to go through the full boot process. Try pressing F8 on boot until the boot option screen comes up and then select safe mode. Follow this though until you are given the option of using system restore instead of safe mode. take that option by clicking on the NO button. Restore the machine to a date some time a few days previous to the fault developing.

If that fails then put in any OS disc and boot from it. select R at the first options screen, follow it through and then select the C drive option. Just hit enter when asked for admin password.

now type chkdsk /r (copy and paste this to be sure). let it run and then reboot and see what happens

Display not working properly


You should be able to plug in an external (Desktop type) monitor . Look for a connector on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, you have pretty much diagnosed that you have a LCD problem.
