Power off even it it takes a battery removal. Now check modular bays and remove then fully insert each device and retry power up. If same results, try repeating above with one of the modular devices removed.

SOURCE: it won't boot to the os

The modular bay refers to the optical drive (CD drive). There is a small screw holding it, I've had machines at my shop that this screw fallen out and the drive wasn't making a good connection. Be sure that the drive hasn't slid out a bit. Take it out clean the connection and put it back, making sure it's seated properly. Try this, then let me know, and we'll go from there.

SOURCE: When I try to boot

It sounds like either the battery or the drive (floppy or CD-ROM) is not seated correctly. Try removing each of them and inserting them again.

How do you reset the latitude d505 to factory settings


How to reset the latitude d505 to factory settings:

If you have Windows XP,

Step 1: Backup everything that is important to you.
Step 2: Boot your computer using the Windows installable CD.
Step 3: Format your harddisk or repartition it.
Step 4: Install Windows XP using the installable CD.

Don't try this if you are not sure of what you are doing. It won't damage your laptop, but you might require a long time to get your laptop working again.

When i turn on my dell latitude D505 the backlight


Either the video cable has been damaged or unplugged or the video processor is malfunctioning. Check this by connecting an external monitor. If the video is all there then press the Fn(function) and F4 key. This should switch the video from the external monitor to the internal screen. If this doesn't happen or if the external monitor shows no video then the laptop needs to see a reputable repair perso or check my website www.micromendllc.com

My dell D505 turned itself and will not turn back on power light flashes but thats it power supply is fine



  1. Locate Fast IR under Onboard Devices.


NOTE: Ensure that the COM port that you select is different from the COM port assigned to the serial connector.
  1. Press <Enter>.

  2. Use the arrow keys to select the infrared COM port setting.

  3. Press <Enter>.

  4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

After you enable the infrared sensor, you can use it to establish a link to an infrared device. To set up and use an infrared device, see the infrared device documentation and the Windows XP Help and Support Center

The sound is off on my D505. How do I get it on


Download the latest drivers for your Dell Latitude D505 off the dell website or try enabling sound in your operating systems control panel.

I said "Operating Systems control panel" because you did not mention what operating system you have.
