If you've tested the power supply and battery, then the only thing left is a motherboard component. The problem will either be with the DC jack or the power management system. First check to see if the jack is loose or noticeably broken. If not, then it's going to be the power management chip. The pm chip controls and regulates the power input, switching from AC to battery, and the charging. With the pm chip, the motherboard will need to be replaced.

The battery of my Dell Latitude D600 is not charging fully. It only runs for 10 minutes when fully charged. Moreover, the battery indicator flashes 4 times red and one time green. Is it the battery problem...


That sounds like a bad battery. Be sure not to leave charger plugged into your computer while not plugged into power or the power switched off. That will really kill your weak battery and then you won't have 10 minutes. You can live okay with a battery like yours but if you ever need to replace ram or do a serious BIOS update the bad battery will not alallow it.

I have an laptop Dell D600 ,its charging port was short circuited ,ihave repair it but now as iam pressing power button three lights are going ON for short and turn off ,nothing working ,display and other...


Hi, try taking out the battery and see what happens.
It may be that when the charge port was short circuited it may have damaged the PSU. Do you have another one to try or may be borrow one from a friend who has a similar Dell Laptop.

Give this a try and let me know.

D600 laptop boot problem


The D600 is plagued with power up problems for 2 reasons. First the connector on the motherboard to the power button is very sloppy and after awile it breaks contact. If you put pressure under the docking port area and press the power button it may start. The second is the memory slots. I know you said you replaced the memory, but it is the slot that is a problem. Remove the memory and put 1 chip in "A", then press down on the chip while trying to boot the laptop. If this works then get a peice of foam or pad and place it on the chip. When you put the cover back on it will push down on the chip and should boot. Repeat this process for "B".
The green light does signify a charged battery! This is also a possible reason for not booting. Remove the battery and try to boot with only the power supply. A shorted battery will stop the laptop from starting up.
If all of this does not help then remove the battery and the CD Rom, then try to boot. Finaly if nothing helps you should buy a new Laptop or a used one on E Bay. You could get a used D600 on E Bay that has a good motherboard for cheap money and use your drives and LCD. I work on D600 and D800 all the time. Let me know how you make out!

Fully charged..why is the orange light flashing


could be that you are used to keep the laptop connected to the ac powerall the time, and the battery slowly died every day, and now it's to the lowest level it could be.

D600 won't power up with AC or battery, and no lights on charging gauge.


Sounds like the dc connector has come loose from the motherboard so prevents power getting to the laptop and battery. Take it to a repair shop and have them check it.

Flashing Lights On My Computer?


You've changed the batteries, but are they fully charged?

I usually leave my charger in all the time when using the laptop as Advent laptops have bad battery life.

Try charging it for max 8hours. If the problem stil persists,then i guess its something internally wrong with the laptop?

Or even, the charger wire may be a bit loose which is preventing it from charging the laptop either completly or partly.

Hope that helped

If the docking station is not charging the laptop while docked, it may simply need to be plugged in using the power cord to recharge the battery.

Orange and green light flash


The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps
