I have a D800 and I am having problems:
basically It wont stay on if it's not attached to a plug,
I can't switch it off because I know I wont be able to start it up again,
It seems that if I don't use it for a bit I can switch it on again,
and previuos to that it used to switch on by it self in the middle of the night,
Do I have to call a GOST BUSTER or a simple technical support guy!!!

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..
Bad news, this most likely indicates a problem in the charging circuit on the mainboard. To be sure, remove the battery and try again, if the same thing happens, then the problem is on the mainboard, if not, replace the battery. I have encountered this problem on an older Dell laptop before, removing the battery did not help and replacing the charger did not help. If the problem is on the mainboard, replacement is rarely practical. The cost of the board and the labor to replace it usually exceeds the cost of replacing the laptop.
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.
ok now it sounds to me the power pack on the back has shat its self so ufourtanetly u need a new one if u still have a valid warrenty ring dell or go to their web site at www.dell.com and they will happiley help u there number is also their but if u dont have warrenty go to their website and see how much it costs for a new battery but see a friend who has a dell laptop and plug in the power cord it might be your power cord not your com or battery so give it a wirl and if u have any problems email me at email@example.com
Could be either but it's pretty common to have power socket or power pin problems. The pins/Sockets are poorly designed and poorly manufactured. There is a HUGE industry in just fixing the pin/socket problems on laptops. I've fixed one each on my Sony Z505 and my wifes Fujitsu. The problem is caused by the daily tugging and pulling on the cord. It puts strain on the poorly designed socket.
Once you get it fixed you might try gettinga Cable Retention Device like the one on this video. . . I did and so far no more pin problems.
