Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I made a mistake and left the computer turned on all night without the adaptor plugged in. When I turned it on, it froze up and I couldn't get it to unfreeze, so I took out the battery and unplugged it so I could start it up faster. But now the laptop will not start up no matter if I've changed the battery with another Dell D600 and switching the adaptor. Can you help me?
Hmmmm.... This is begining to look like a simple no post issue. I hope it is. Anyway, try this. Wats your OS(WinXP, Win 98, WinME)? The explanation is too long so just go to support.dell.com and look for NO POST on the search screen on the upper right of the main page.

Ok, here we go. Now these instructions will only work if:
1. The system you bought has a built-in self diagnostic partition.
2. You have "NOT" reformated this thing since you bought it.
Now try this, take out the battery, install the ac adapter, hold down the "Fn" key and the power button together. This should initialize a self diagnostics test on your system. Once it does, select your preferred diagnostic procedure. The screen may flicker when its on the screen test (dont worry, its normal) and you will have to have contact with your system up to that point (its gonna ask you is you saw the colors). After that, you can leave that thing to do its job. But at this point, we've already determined that the system turns on. But let it run thru the whole process. Coz we need to determine whats wrong with it.
Notice: Listen for beeps!!!
Sometimes the system may give you a series of beeps in sequence. Listen for it and post it here. For example; if it gives you 3 beeps then 2 beeps then 1, post it as 3-2-1.
Worst case: The instructions wont work and you will have to buy a new HDD. Forget it. Just get a new system. The HDD's for the D600 are really hard to come by nowadays.
Hope this helps.
