Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6430776-troubleshooting_laptop_power_failures

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine. The main indicators in these cases are the sound, and the hard drive LED on the laptop case. If the laptop sounds just like it always does for a minute or two after being turned on, it means it's going ahead and booting the operating system, but the video processor or part of the motherboard circuit for video output has failed. If the laptop just sits there and beeps when you turn it on, or if you hear the fan but not the hard drive chuckling with its active LED flashing away, it means the laptop isn't getting as far as trying to boot the operating system. While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the most common and easiest to
troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like Crucial.com.

The best way to unloc a BIOS password is to reset by removing the CMOS battery and while the mains is removed press the power button a few times and leave for about 30 seconds. Refit the battery and power up. Password should be removed.

I have a Dell Latitude D800. I want to run it on AC power. Do I have to take the battery pack out of it before I ru it on AC power?


Hello Paula, Hi Never remove the battery out when powering with AC, your Dell will get busted, run ac with the battery. The AC power produces a voltage above the normal operating voltage of the Dell, the over voltage is for charging the battery and powering the DELL, if you remove the battery, the over voltage will bust the laptop in seconds. So operate the laptop with AC and battery.

Dell latitude d800 will freeze up after 2 -3 hrs . all drivers are up to date. fans work.also battery wont take a charge works with ac jack. battery shows one green dot. did a scan found no problems!!!!...


Driver order is VERY important on Dell portables, Notebook System Software, Chipset and Video drivers should be installed in that order, after that point, the rest can be done as you please.
If not already done, flash the BIOS to current version.
If you do all that and issue still occurs, answer is likely that the system is overheating. Try blowing out the intake and exhaust vents for the CPU cooling and ensure you are using the system on a hard flat surface
If issue still occurs, you might want to replace the CPU heatsink and fan

I Have a Dell Latitude D800 and it's plugged into power. when i hit the start button it lights up a couple of lights on the keyboard, they go out after a couple of seconds and then nothing happens?


Is the battery charging? and is the power adaptor properly plugged in? If yes then it's probably a faulty PSU and you will need to phone DELL for a replacement/repair.

Dell Latitude D800 Wont Power Up


Check the status of the battery directly from the battery. Turn the laptop over and on the batter is an battery indicator button and lights to tell you if it's charged. If it is charged then you have an problem internally. Wiggle the tip of the power cord at the laptop connection to see if it is loose, if it is then you have an loose connection on the motherboard which can be fixed by an experienced tech that can solder or the motherboard will need to be replaced.


IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..

D800 will not even boot


Okay, I had that problem with my HP less than a minute ago.

Maybe it is the same problem. See if the battery light comes on. Press the power button again and again if it doesn't start, for some time. It may show the boot screen and hang. Now, the battery must be charged. Shut it down directly and switch the AC off.

Now, switch it on and see if the battery light comes on. If it does, it is the same problem as mine. Now, turn the PC over and remove the battery carefully. There may be switches for that.

Now, plug in the AC and start it without the battery in. If it does, you're done. Now, plug in the battery again.
