Question about Dell Latitude CpX Laptop PIII 500 Mhz 13.3" TFT 10 GB HD 128 MB RAM CD Floppy 56K Modem Internet and... (DCPX500CD) PC Notebook
I turn on my laptop and only three lights come on for 5 sec and then turns off hard drive does not spin, fan doesnt go on either.
Try powering the system on with only the AC adapter, see if you get any power indications.
If you do not, then the system is not getting AC power.
See if the power adapter has an LED on it and if it is lit with the computer disconnected. If the LED doesn't come on at all, replace the adapter. IF the LED is on with the computer unplugged from it, then goes out when you plug it in, then try a new AC adapter.
If a new AC adapter doesn't resolve the problem, then you may want to look into buying a new computer as replacing the motherboard on this system may cost more than replacing the computer with a new system.
