Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

Flashing 'A' light?

Hi, I have had my D600 for a few months now and have had no problems until last week when the whole thing suddenly crashed and turned itself off. When I pressed the power switch to turn it back on the screen remained blank and only the 'a' light at the top of the keyboard flashed for a few seconds before the laptop stopped again. I though it was the battery but I have charged, recharged and replaced the battery but the outcome is still the same. I have tried turning the power on everyday since and there is still no power. When I phone help lines all people say is that they dont know what the problem is. Can you help? The problem is becoming really irritating as I have work to do and cant get it done. Thanks.

OMG u NOT NEED A NEW motherboard. the problem is with a loose connection between the ram and the motherboard. The first thing u need to do is figure out which slot (or memory module) is faulty. If the memmory slot is faulty you will have to add solder to the joints going to the motherboard. Or you can try making it work by putting a piece of paper on to of the memmory card that is in the slot that has the problem. I hope this fixes your problem.

The flashing A light indicates a motherboard failure. So you'll need to get the motherboard replaced.

Orange and green light flash


The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps

Games Crash..


How old is the laptop? It could be that the gfx card is dieing or has died and the onboard card cannot handle the games. If it is still under warranty take it back to the place of purchase and get them to repair it. If it is outside the warranty period and it is the gfx card, the only thing you can really do is buy a new card that your motherboard will support.
