When I turn on the machine the lights come on like it is going to start and shuts off. this happens whether it is battery or plugged in. Would this be a motherboard issue? What would you advise?

Mine did this too. I removed the hard drive, attempted to start up and got to the setup window. Shut it down, putt the hard drive back in and all is well! Reseating the hd seemed to do it.

First try starting without the battery, just AC. Still nothing, then try removing the memory and placing one or the other chip in and starting, then change out chips. Both the battery and memory are common causes of a no start with Dell machines. If neither of these work, then it's a problem with the motherboard. Take it in for diagnosis, they will be able to tell you exactly where the problem is and if it's a replaceable component.

I cant get my dell laditude D510 to turn on

Some machines need a battery with some power left in them, to work. If the battery is finished you will need to get it rpacked or buy another.
If the battery should be OK you cannot run it on the power supply, that may have burnt out. You can buy ones that work on all machines much cheaper that an original.

Vertical colored lines have appeared in my display.

turn on the system by pressing FN key and then the power but this should start up the onboard diagnostics let me know if the line are displayed during the diagnostic if it does the its the graphics. when it ask you if vertical or horizontal bars were displayed. select N so it can test the LCD panel if the lines are displayed there then it is your lcd panel.To make sureyour lcd panel is fine it will display solid colors.

I have a DELL Latitude D510. Intermittenly the laptop suddenly looses power. The batteries are fully charged, and the power is plugged in. Most often it will not restart immediatelly after such a power...

It may be because of a virus causing your system turn off suddenly. If you are sure that your system is free from Virus, then it may be because of processor over heating. If the processor heat reaches maximum limit, it shuts off the system automatically to prevent physical damage like burning, etc,. So, check weather your lappy's vent fan is working properly or not and clean if there are any obstacles like dust which are causing your processor over heating. Get back to me if this doesn't help...
