Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook
When I press the power button on my Dell Latitutde D505 the three green lights frash [ 9 ] [ A ] [ I ] however the [ 9 ] and [ l ] swith off and the [ A ] light flashes about ten seconds and then the system powers off. Nothing shows on the LCD screen as it doesn't appear the laptop is staying on long enough to even boot up.
I contacted Dell support. They said the blinking "A" light is an indicator of a memory problem (though they first suggested a faulty system board). I purchased a brand new memory, swapped it with the old, and the problem still exists. (Only 1 memory slot is being used.) I KNOW it's not the power cord as the adapter shows a solid, green charge. I also tried to dock the laptop but the same problem exists.
Any suggestions would be grateful. Also, what does the [ A ] LED light mean? I can't find any documentation on it.
It sounds like Dell support may have been right when they told you the motherboard had failed.
