My Dell Latitude C400 does not power on. I bought a new power cord and battery and it still does not power on. Is it unsalvageable?

    The charger works fine, but none of the leds light up when we press the power button - no response. Maybe the power button is broken?

Dell c400 latitude has a 1in border around the screen after windows boot up.


Hi poperwog,
The easiest way to determine if this issue is a hardware or software failure is by performing a power drain. Here's how you will do it.
1. Turn off the computer completely.
2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet.
3. Remove the battery from the unit.
4. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.
5. Put the battery back in and plug the unit.
6. Turn it on and observe the system.
If this did not work, it is a hardware failure (display issue).
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My dell latitude c400 does not take a charge do i have to buy a new battery ?


Yes, most likely you may need to replace the battery. Try to get a different cell capacity this time (I do not know if you currently have a 6 cell or 9 cell battery). Once it's not keeping a charge it most likely has a problem.
Hope this helps...

Dell C400 Laptop Battery not charging


Go into the battery properties and check if the battery is charging. If it says it is, then test it, use the battery to see if it really is charging, they will sometimes give a false reading. If it's not charging, then check the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. If this all checks good, but the battery isn't charging, then I'm afraid you have a failed power management system on the motherboard. The power management system controls the charging along with other power related aspects of the machine. If the power management system has failed, then unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.

Internal Battery Problem?


This is what we call a "NO POST" problem. You need to contact Dell Tech Support for this to narrow down the issue to a part. This could be caused by any part that is not letting the computer to power on or boot up. Note: You may need to tear-down the computer for this issue whe call tech support.
