Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

Dell C610 won't power up

I understand you had the same problem. Press power button, get all the leds for about 3 seconds, then powers down. No fan, disk, or screen activity during the 3 seconds. Did you ever get a solution? Thanks. Ron

    Thanks for the input. I had already tried all the things you suggested, but tried them again with the same results. I suspect it is the motherboard, and was curious what the result was with your same problem. I have not disassembled the laptop yet (but now plan to) to check out the processor fan. Do you suppose a dead fan would give these symptoms? Thanks again.

    OK....thanks. It appears my next step is to repair or replace the motherboard. I appreciate your advice.

There are three things that generally cause this on the Dell systems. The two most common are the battery and the memory. Start by removing the battery and powering on the adapter only. Then remove the memory and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If neither of these work, then the problem is most likely a failed component in the power management system on the motherboard. I've dealt with many of these models that have a fialed PM system, and have found that motherboard replacement is the best option, and in some cases the only option. You can have a shop take a look at it, but you will probably get the same answer.

    No, there's no way that a fan will cause this, and generally a processor won't cause this. If the fan were bad, it would simply overheat and shut down, and when a processor fails, you won't get anything, no lights, nothing. Since you've tried the suggestions, the only thing left is the power management system on the board.

Dell PowerEdge 2300 Server won't boot


To power off using the power button, press and hold in for more than four seconds.

However this is not solving your problem of not booting, needs some more information. Such as Beeping noises, number and length of beeps. Or any LED.s flashing?

Dell c610 will not turn on


Forgeet the CMOS battery, worthless exercise. Most likely from what you describe it is a bad motherboard, and on a system that old I'd say replace not repair. If you want to fix it, mothebroards are $50 to 100 for that model on EBay

What is the button and set of 5 lights on a dell c610 battery for


The LEDs on the battery indicate the charge remaining. Press the button and you should get 5 LEDs with a full charge. The LEDs stay on in a steady state as long as you hold trhe button

The LEDs can also indicate an internal failure of the battery (Usually 1 3 and 5 will flash) if the LEDs flash, the battery is either critically low or failing. If charging it doesn't change the LED flashing them the battery will need to be replaced
