I also have a Dell the same problem occured twice, I called the techs and had to have a mal ware virus removed both times!!! They had me switch off the computer and tap f 8 multiple times and the remote accessed my computer......hope this helps!!!
Try flexing the whole bottom assembly. that is with the laptop open put your knee in the middle and grab the unit with one hand on the corner closest to you and the other near the screen and put enough pressure to "flex " the mobo right after you push the start button if it doesn't start try it the other way... this has been working for my grandsons d600 for 6 months. i tried a new switch board because the guy that sold me the mobo said the plug for that is know to crack. good luck ps you will know it has worked when the 3 lock lights go out and the power light stays on.
purple function key next to the ctrl key
press that down and hold
press the num lock (toggle)
press the scroll lk (toggle)
press white cap lock only
See if any of these change the lighted lock indicator.
I assume that was what you mentioned in a focus of the request
To the right of the power button and below the Dell AccessDirect button are three lights. These have a lock synbol below them. The first one from left to right is signified by a number 9, this light is turned on when the numberical keypad is enables. The center light is signified by a letter A, it is on when the uppercase letter function (Caps Lock) is enabled. the third one, far right, signified by a down arrow, is on when the scroll lock function is enabled.
The device status lights on the far right side near the front of the laptop case. The top light is the power status light, the middle light is the Hard drive activity light, the bottom light is the status light for power management, battery, AC etc.
That's either a fried processor (hope not!) or a flat CMOS battery. It's a nightmare to get at that battery - you'll need to open the case completely and get at the motherboard. Once you've done that though it's easy enough to replace it, although you may need to do some shopping on ebay if it isn't the standard CR2032 coin cell type.
This is common issue and that typically means your Processor is dead. If you dont hear any beeping and it powers off after three seconds without any activity on the screen means BIOS hasnt even found the Processor and without the processor you will get no POST. Post is a bunch of tests for hardware components and give beep codes if it finds an error. Only issue it cant post an error if the processor isnt working. Solution, order a new processor for your laptop and replace it or buy a new computer. If you order a new processor be sure to order some thermal paste too.
Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.
I have one that does that periodically. Probably not the highest tech solution but I give the keyboard a robust slap just to the right of centre & this always does the trick. (Originally tried re-seating memory and CPU to no avail and in frustration gave it a slap & it worked!)
