Based on what the guy said, it could be a heat issue. The internal fans of your laptop may have shorted, meaning they aren't working. You should have them checked out for any loose connections or burnt out parts. Have any reconnected and replaced as needed. Opening it yourself with no prior experience to such a task can worsen the problem.

Yes this can be a opverheating problem that's why sometimes it boots up, if the processor is not working fine because of overheating you check first the cooling system of your computer liek the fan if they are working fine because if the fan is not working the way it should be working oeverheating may occur and will result to this problem...

Hope that helps.......

Have a dell laptop but it doesnt start when i push the power key a little lock with the letter a inside blinks what does this mean then the computer shuts off by itself


That icon is the indicator for Caps Lock (aka Shift Lock). When in the operating system (Windows), you can turn the icon on (or should be able to) by pressing the CAPS Lock key, and turn it off by pressing the CAPS Lock key again.

My loptop D610 turn on ,caps lock blinks and ater 3 to4 secons it


I would try clearing the cmos battery. It's located under a small door under the laptop battery. Unhook the wire (laptop unplugged) and let it sit for 20 minutes. Hook it back up and try to power up. If that doesn't work www.pcrepairhelp.net has techs that work on laptops.

DELL LATITUDE D600 fails to boot up


Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


Not sure if it's a sure fix or not, but it worked for me.

I have a Dell Latitude c640 and when powering up, the caps LED would blink roughly 10 times, things would spin up, but after the 10 or so blinks, it would power down without anything having been displayed. This happened just after I had the laptop going on batteries, and it went into hibernate mode automatically after the batteries got low. When I plugged back up to a power supply and turned on, the computer started to exhibit this problem.

All I did was removed the bottom panel, removed both memory modules, put the memory modules back in the slot, rocked them at least 7 times before locking them back in to place to ensure a good seat, and completly seated them (clicks into place), closed up the panel, and powered up.

After doing this, the system booted up normally.

Just as a bynote , Faulty RAM, damaged motherboard affecting the RAM (ie cracked RAM slot where it was maybe forced in with a bit too much pressure) and lastly cooking the chip although this is a lot more rare.
Easiest way to check is get another laptop and swap YOUR RAM INTO IT if it affects that laptop then RAM, riskier is to switch ITS RAM into yours, still does it - generally MoBo.
there are also other problems that cause these errors, but in my experience these are the most common
Good luck!
