Dell Inspiron 8600 Not Powering Up

Hi. I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 that I bought about 4 years ago. I have never had any problems with it until today. I was using it earlier in the day and it was working fine but now I can't get it to even power up. I press the button and it get the indicator lights to come on for about a second and then nothing. Any ideas?

Have you checked all connections to the battery, make sure the battery terminals are free of cerrosion(rust&mold) make sure alll the power cables are intact. it does not sound like the power supply due to the fact that the light is coming on for a min or so.

Dell Inspiron 8600 Wireless connection driver Problem


I would check network connections in your control panel first and make sure your wireless connection is enabled. Next I would go to System in control panel and then go to device manager and check to see if the drive for the wireless is installed. May want to try here for the Driver download.

Forgot Password. Any way to bypass or reset it?


You can download a bootable CD image from this site, http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/, what you will do once you create the CD is put it in the CD drive and boot your computer, assuming that your BIOS is set to boot from CD if not you will need to do this. Then just follow the prompts on the screen to reset or remove the Administrator password. This is one tool that I keep in my toolbox otherwise the only option is to reinstall Windows. The web site has good instructions on the application, I have been using it for years, great tool.

This is a fault with the TFT display controller, Unfortunately this kind of fault is not User Serviceable, If this item is within manufacturer's warranty send it back and they should fix it for you, (REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR DATA as they may choose just to replace the whole thing)
