This could ba caused by several things. First, a bad power supply. Second, a bad battery, try starting it without the battery. Third, a bad memory chip. And fourth, the power management chip on the motherboard. If it's not the battery, power supply, or memory chip, then it's the pm chip and the motherboard will have to be replaced.

My dell latitude d600 won't recognize the AC power adapter and doesn't show that the battery (which is new) is charging. I had to leave it plugged in for about a week when I put in the new battery before...


There was a class action suite against Dell for this problem with this model laptop due to overheating and destroying the power supply. Browse the web for more information. I have one and it is a parts machine now.

Battery indicator?


Hi there.
Sounds like the battery could be faulty.
The diagnostic procedures from the Dell User Guide are as follows:

Total Power Failure When Using a Battery
If an AC adapter is not connected to your computer, the computer's power source
is a battery. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
battery needs to be charged. If the battery is flashing green and amber, the
battery may be defective. To troubleshoot this problem, use the following
procedure.
1. Turn off the computer and peripherals, and disconnect them from AC power.
2. Reseat each installed battery by removing it and then replacing it.
3. Turn on the computer. Does the green power indicator light up?
Allow one minute for the computer to initialize its components before checking
for signs of power.
Yes. Continue to step 4.
No. Use the AC adapter to connect your computer to AC power. If the computer
operates normally when using AC power, go to step 7. If the computer does not
boot when using the AC adapter, see the previous subsection, "Total Power
Failure When Using the AC Adapter."
4. Does the battery indicator flash amber or show a a steady amber light?
Yes. The battery needs to be charged. Go step 5.
No. Go to step 7.
5. Connect the computer to AC power, and fully charge the battery.
For instructions, see the topic titled "Charging the Battery" in the online
System User's Guide.
6. As the battery charges, does the green battery indicator light up?
Yes. Go to step 9.
No. Go to step 7.
7. Is the battery indicator flashing green and amber?
Yes. Your computer may be in a hot environment. Charging the battery in this
condition may affect the life span of the battery. Continue to step 8.
No. The problem is resolved.
8. Disconnect the computer from AC power. Is the the battery indicator still
flashing amber?
Yes. You may have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is resolved.
9. Remove the battery, and press its test button. Is the uppermost indicator in
the charge gauge of the battery flashing?
Yes. You have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is resolved.
10. If a spare battery is available, fully charge it, and then install it in the
computer.
11. Turn on the computer. Is the power indicator off?
Yes. Your original battery is defective.

Good luck

Notebook not charging


if the AC adapter port itself on the computer is loose even if you tried different AC adapters, the motherboard of your system will need to be replaced. If the warranty of your computer is still active, you can request a replacement motherboard from Dell. Otheriwse, if the warranty is no longer valid, you either need to purchase a replacement board, or try to use electric tape around the end of the AC adapter to fill it the gap when attached to the port on the computer.

This started last night, my battery indicator


The red or amber flashing lights indicate a bad battery. The Dell battery warranty is only for one year and the D600 has been out for a number of years. You should replace the battery. You can use the laptop as it is as long as it is connected to AC power.

There are several places to buy replacement batteries. One is www.bixcomputers.com. If you do a search on the web you should be able to find other sources.

Good luck and I hope this helps, even if it isn't good news.

My dell d600 wont come on even when i put the charger on


If the system shows no power indication when trying to power on or if you get only a momentary flash of the Power LED, then it goes off, the first point to check is the AC Adapter. If possible, try a known good adapter from another D-Series Dell. Check the LED on the AC adapter to see if it is ON before connecting it to the system. If it is and it goes out when you plug it to the system.

If the LED goes out and no other adapter is available, then I'd start with a new AC Adapter. (If you have no known good adapter available, you might try taking it to best buy and see if they can connect the system to a known good there to see if it powers on).

If replacing the AC Adapter does not resolve your issue, the motherboard is the next component to replace.

Dell latitude d600 blinking battery light


I would say its defective. Bring it back to where you bought it and show them. Bring your laptop charger also so you can show them it in action. Hope this helped.

Dell latitude d600 doesn't turn on


The test Dell advises to narrow down this issue is to remove the battery, hard drive, ram, and optical drive.  Next plug in the a/c power cord and you should get some LED's coming on. If not it points to the motherboard.
