C600 not starting

Hi gotta a problem with my Dell C600.

When I try to start it the 3 led's next to the power button come on for about 7 seconds then go off. The power and the harddrive led's on the right edge come on too. Thx in advance for your help

    Hi All,



    Originally, my C600 would stop and I had to switch off with the power button. It would start again for a while before the same happened. I suspected that the CPU fan was not coming on although it passed the diagnostic test. I have removed all the ancillaries, ie HDD, Battery, CD drive, memory, Modem and reseated the CPU but still on pressing the power button the lock lights, power and HD lights come on for approx 5 seconds then go off and nothing.



    Many thanks in advance,



    Arthur65.

Check memory and CPU first, typically they cause shut offs. Try battery, AC to laptop and AC via port replicator. Borrow one if need be, but it's good to check these options

Hmmm, Typically safe mode overcomes most errors, You can make changes in MS-Dos, but if all else fails and you fear data loss, daisy chain the hard disk to another computer with matching OS and move the important files then wipe and re-format

Try to connect and external keyboard to it
with the external monitor.
If the shortcut is in the keypads where most off the beer propably came in contact.
will now be seen if its boots up.
If it boots up with external keyboard the ptoblem is in the beer soaked keyboard.
change or clean the keyboard with isoprophanol
to dissolve moisture and beer.
This is the solution. Please vote!!!

My c600 is not puttin power in battery


if its the battery with a press button that lights up 5 green lights.. if u hold it for about 6 seconds it should light up all or some in a row like 000.. ( depends on charge it has) after 6 seconds none should flash , they should turn off . if any do flash or led green are missing in between its likely a bad battery.
