Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I'm hoping its a bad battery, otherwise it could be a power or main board problem. Try taking the battery right out of the laptop plug in the adaptor and power it up. If it works you just need a new battery. The battery had a small controller inside and if it detects a problem it can force a shutdown or stop it from powering up. That happens before the post tests which generate the error beeps.
The other things that can cause this and not show or sound errors are #1 ram bad or loose, and #2 is a mainboard error. A bad cpu will usually generate an error. If the first ram module is bad or just loose it can't do any tests and sits there. So after you try the battery then you can try swapping the ram around if you have more than one module or re-seating them. The mainboard usually is stone dead with no nothing at all so that seems unlikly in this case as its doing something.
I'd bet on the battery or the ram.

Question have you tried clearing the flee power on the computer?
To do this unplug the AC power and unplug the battery. Next hold down the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. After you do this plug back in the AC power and try to turn the computer on. If it still will not turn on and you have tried another AC Adapter then most likely the problem is with the motherboard.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.
