No, look maybe I'm not that good in "sentences" but that's not my problem, the problem is that Dell Latitudes laptops (many of them) has an option on BIOS to warn you when you're not using the correct charger (has to do with the wattage not voltage or amp.) So, i know exactly the problem, i just want to know if there is any way to deal with this problem, because when your at this point, the battery will not charge and the performance will be minimum Read the warning message yourself, so if you have any solution about my problem (not with english sentences) please let me know. If not, as for sentences i will ask my english teacher (when i will have one)
Firstly, you should try to use correct sentence structure.
Secondly, as long as it's a pa-10 or pa-12 for the d600 you should be fine. the chargers are not specific to each laptop, rather they are more specific to the dell product family(the type of power connectors on each).

These laptops are notorious for developing battery issues. We've got one at our house that would basically be a paperweight without a charger and external monitior. The best fix for this is to buy a new battery.
Sounds like you may have fried your dell latitude. I have seen many laptop's fry and it is nothing you did, but they just go sometimes.
Take the battery out of the laptop.
Plug the charger in.
Hold the power button for a minimum 10 secs (which will reset the power options)
If there are still no lights than it is your cpu
If the computer turns on then you have a bad battery.
When batteries are bad or dead, the computer tries to run off of the battery befor the charger, it switches over to the charger after your OS has booted. In that case you can just order a new one no big deal, but if your cpu is fried then there is no hope for the laptop. :( I have lost four laptops because of this, so for your sake I hope its the battery or the GND Drain.
Also possible that the GND's drain on your board is too short and Gate 4 is driving low. To fix this you have to remove a SMT ceramic cap, which is located opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. A couple of Dell Latitude d505 have had this problem and can easily be fixed, but must be cautious and know what you are doing. I would advise seeing a professional.
There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.
The charger may be bad. You need to measure the output voltage at the computer end of the cord with a voltmeter. Zero volts means bad unit, but may be just the plug end wires are broken near the plug (common problem). A repair shop might be able to fix it with a new plug. A new charger is outrageously expensive.
It could be your charger, if you have say a dell laptop, get a dell
charger for it, it should fix the problem and it will reduce any damage
done to your laptop and/or the charger, saves you money in the long run
to. and if you want more technical assistance contact http://tinyurl.com/msfzw7
did you have a look at the sticker under laptop to see what voltage it was then set the charger to this,, if to setting is to low it will do this but if to high it could damage the laptop ,, you will find that it set to low or the other problem is most dells wont run via uni chargers unless the charger states it because dell like to use there own parts made by them unlike other makes
Bring it in the Geek Squad they can test your charger there, If the charger is ok send the whole pc to dell so they can check all the componets, charging unit might need to be replaced or you might have a short in the motherboard...
