Dell D500 Latitude- Does not turn on

Dear all Please help me. I closed the door of my Laptop to let it hybernate. About two hours later I opened it and was expecting the page to come up so I can login again. However the panel next to my power on key(it seems to be the capslock key- the sign with the lock and a A letter inside) flashes for some seconds and it turns off without nothing happening. I can simply not turn my computer on again. What is the problem? please write here or email me as soon as possible if you know what the problem is at [email protected] other question , Is there a chance i might loose the information on my hard? regards

    Dear all

    I should thank you all very much for concern about helping me for this matter.
    I did infact try opening the battery,disconnecting it and reconnecting it again but the problem unfortunately did not solve.
    I have tried different things (Try and errors) and might have found out where the probelm could be from. I think it might also be interesting for you, so I will explain for you.
    My computer consisits of two 256 RAMs. Meaning I have two 512 RAMS. I took the RAMS out and only left one 256 RAM inside one of the motherboard slots. The computer to my pleasure started. Obviously it was very slow, staright away I copied all my important files on to a USB before doing anything else and after that turned the Laptop off again and tried putting inside the other 256 RAM. To my suprise again the laptop did not turn on . I also tried changing the RAMS and again starting the computer with one RAM and it was ok. So I think there is nothing wrong with the RAM however one of slots on the motherboard which are for the connection of the RAM seem not to be functioning.

    I once again thank you for your kind attention in trying to help me.

    I had the exact same problem with my Dell D500, I removed the second memory board (ram from slot B) and it turned right on again. Does anyone know what could cause this and how to prevent it from occurring again?

Maybe the battery has locked the process. Take out the battery for about 5 minutes. Then insert it back in and plug in the power cord. Turn it back on and see if that works.

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -


My Dell latitude d500 won't recover from standby mode (i.e. after shutting the lid).

The little button on the laptop pushes down when you close the lid and is probably stuck down. Open the laptop and look at the area near the hinges foe a tiny gray pop up button. If it is stuck down you will need to try pulling it up with tweezers. Mine is above the power button on a D800. Here is your manual !

Let me know how you make out!
