Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I, too, have the same problem as my Dell d600 won't start up. When I do press the power button, all three lights will blink and then stop. The fan at this time does not come on.
Two things to try that are common causes of this are; 1- remove the battery and start up on the adapter only, and 2- remove the memory and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If these do not work, then the problem is with a motherboard component, most likely in the power management system. If it is the power management system, then motherboard replacement is considerably cheaper than have the components repaired unless the machine is under warranty.

This is do to the jack were the power button board plugs into the motherboard, i see this alot on d600 and d610, the lights come on for about 3 sec then computer turns off..
this can be fixed by resoldering the plug to the motherboard but most will say you need a new mother board the leads are small and tight together..
Used motherboard on ebay $60-150
