Have you tried removing your battery first then, try to plug your power adapter again without the battery? if your laptop will power on, then maybe your battery is defective. let me know if this works.

Sounds like you may have fried your dell latitude. I have seen many laptop's fry and it is nothing you did, but they just go sometimes.

Recomendaitons:
Take the battery out of the laptop.
Plug the charger in.
Hold the power button for a minimum 10 secs (which will reset the power options)
If there are still no lights than it is your cpu
If the computer turns on then you have a bad battery.

When batteries are bad or dead, the computer tries to run off of the battery befor the charger, it switches over to the charger after your OS has booted. In that case you can just order a new one no big deal, but if your cpu is fried then there is no hope for the laptop. :( I have lost four laptops because of this, so for your sake I hope its the battery or the GND Drain.

Also possible that the GND's drain on your board is too short and Gate 4 is driving low. To fix this you have to remove a SMT ceramic cap, which is located opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. A couple of Dell Latitude d505 have had this problem and can easily be fixed, but must be cautious and know what you are doing. I would advise seeing a professional.

Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

Dell latitude D505 battery not charging


Take Dell latitude D505 battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.

Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
hope this helps

My laptop wont power on, lights come on briefly then shut off. no fan noises or anything


Check the ram memory and se if they are plugged well and working ..leave it work with one at the time if you have more than one module of ram ..and see if this is the issue ..
from what you say it is doing ..sounds to me like a cpu fault .and more likely a fan failure...cause it wants to start but it shuts down as a protection in the moment it detects the fan not working ..So open it up and check the fan ..or replace it ...If this will not solve ..replace the cpu

The battery light on my Dell d505 keeping blinking red & green and will not connect to the internet...is that a battery problem or something else...i have plugged it into the wall and still does not...


I believe that means a low or potentially bad battery. Furthermore a bad battery will not hold charge hence the re-occurring issue when plugged to the wall. See if you notice any difference when the battery is removed and you are just plugged into the wall. I was able to find a battery replacement site below.

When I plug in the power cord to charge the battery, the light on the cord goes off. I tried several charges and they work. Can charged battery on another computer and place on the dead computer and it...


There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.

Hope this helps!

My dell d505 latitude laptop has the dreaded


Sounds like your battery is dead. They go bad in laptops and need to be replaced in a couple years.

1) Unplug your battery and power laptop on with just AC adaptor. If laptop runs normal then you need to replace battery.

2) If it doesnt turn on at all then your motherboard may have a problem. The power supply is integrated on MB on most/all laptops.

2) if you need a motherboard replacement, try http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/DellPartsFamily.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs

Old battery not charging plug in charger green light goes out


If the system will not power on, and the LED on the AC adapter goes out when plugged into the system, then the most likely senario is the motherboard has failed. Remove the battery, Wireless card, Drives, RAM and connect the AC adapter see if anything changes. If no change, the MB is most likely bad.
