Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell start up

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.

SOURCE: Latitude D600 PC Notebook: dell d600 three light on and of problam...

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..

My dell D600 laptop fails to boot, when i press the power button the three indicator light on it will on for 3 seconds and will off.


Try flexing the whole bottom assembly. that is with the laptop open put your knee in the middle and grab the unit with one hand on the corner closest to you and the other near the screen and put enough pressure to "flex " the mobo right after you push the start button if it doesn't start try it the other way... this has been working for my grandsons d600 for 6 months. i tried a new switch board because the guy that sold me the mobo said the plug for that is know to crack. good luck ps you will know it has worked when the 3 lock lights go out and the power light stays on.

My Dell laptop d600 suddenly shut off and will not power back up....led light on adapter blinks when plugged in...I have tried re-inserting RAM modules but this or nothing else seems to work.. thank you...


Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.

Dell D600 will not power on


I have one that does that periodically. Probably not the highest tech solution but I give the keyboard a robust slap just to the right of centre & this always does the trick. (Originally tried re-seating memory and CPU to no avail and in frustration gave it a slap & it worked!)

Dell latitude D600 problem


The flashing caps lock is an indication of a failed POWER on Self-Test (POST)

Remove the HDD, Battery, AC adapter, RAM and Modem

Press and hold power button for 15 seconds

Connect AC, see if you get any beep codes. If you do, power off, disconnect power, insert RAM, connect AC and reboot. If system boots, power off and add hard drive. If it doesn't, replace the motherboard.

If the system boots with RAM, but fails to boot with HDD, replace HDD 1st.
