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)

Thank you for your time.

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).

When I plug in the power cord to charge the battery, the light on the cord goes off. I tried several charges and they work. Can charged battery on another computer and place on the dead computer and it...

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.

Hope this helps!

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.
