Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an Advent 7204 laptop two years old and suddenly it doesnt work anymore. When turning on, the lights which flash on went all the way through as normal then suddenly started fading and the machine just went blank. Tried this same procedure three or four times and the same happened again but much quicker. I took it into pc world and they said without them looking at it for over 200 quid they couldnt say what was wrong with it except perhaps that because I had always left the battery pack on the laptop and using it via the adaptor, this may have burnt everything out. I have in the meantime bought another laptop but would ideally like to know what could be wrong with my Advent 7204. Might I need a new adaptor or perhaps a battery pack? Surely, with just moderate usage, a laptop should last longer than 2 years? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I would suggest you to check with a different adapter, first.
You don't have to buy a new adapter for that.
Try to borrow from someone who has a compatible adapter.

My bolt light flashes pink on my advent laptop


The rechargeable battery probably needs to be replaced, if the battery is 1 to 3 years old have it checked. Go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to battery.

The battery doesnt charge anymore. Even when it is pugged in the orange light still flashes to say its about to go flat. As soon as you unpulg it, it will die. How do I fix this?


How many years old is the battery? If it's more than 3 years (depending on the laptop usage), I suggest you changing it.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Year old advent netbook 4211b will not turn on,


When you press power button press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you can see bios screen then you not need to refix RAM memory or reset bios.
IF you can see bios screen then lake sure harddisk is detected and SATA is disable then save settings and exit.
Also when you power up press F8 key if you able to see safe mode and other menu then you have change screen resolution enter in enable vga mode.
Then open control panel and display then change scree resolution to 1024*768.
Then apply and ok.
But if you can't see bios screen or nothing in dispaly then you have to refix RAM memory .
Check in back side there is 1 plate open it then refix RAM memory.
If still not get display then open back cover of laptop then find motherbord on it then pull cmos cell for 10 minutes so all settings go to defaults then again refix cmos cell then check.

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

You could have a faulty adapter. Get it checked out and or borrow one to test your laptop to determine whether the laptop or adapter is at fault.
