Re: dell inspiron 8200
Is this the same problem you were having before you replaced the motherbrd? If so then the motherbrd is not the issue. If the symptom changed, you may have a DOA motherbrd or you missed something when you re-assembled it. Did you migrate the CPU from the old motherbrd and secure it in the ZIF socket securely? Reseat the memory modules one at a time to determine if one is defective. Dis-connect the LCD video cable from the motherbrd. Remove video card if it has one. Dis-connect the Palmrest, (Touchpad) cable from motherbrd. Remove the Hard disk drive. Remove the battery and just use the AC adaptor.Try to isolate the problem.

Latitudes sometimes have a problem with RAM. Try these things to get it to boot...
1. Remove the RAM modules, clean the contacts with a pencil eraser, reseat modules and test.
2. If two modules, remove one and test. Place same module in second slot and test.
I assume that you have your charger plugged in as long as you use the laptop...
There are very minimal chances o the battery having been damaged, since the casing on the inspiron 8200 is quite sturdy.. i suggest you get the charge socket (the socket that leads to the main wall electricity outlet) from a qualified technician...
Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Another more intense diagnostic program is located on a Dell CD that you should have received with your laptop. Look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key.Select the “Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics”. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.
