Question about Dell Latitude C640 Notebook
I went to turn on laptop while plugged in and absolutely nothing! The power supply light is green but thats it nothing lights up on laptop. Any help is apprecated. Elaine
I have the exact same issue. It's not the processor. If you have you power supply tested, you will probably find that it's not working anymore. The green light still comes on when plugged in, but it's not sending the "charge" to the notebook.
I have this issue with a couple of C640's. I've tested the machine by charging the battery in another (Pentium 3 Dell C600), then putting it back into the broken machine... woohoo it works.
Unfortunately I can't figure out why the power supply's keep on busting, I don't think that the power-supplies are faulty, or maybe they just get old, don't know, but the most obvious problem is probably something with the mainboard, which really sux.
Hope this helps,

I had this problem with my Dell L PP01L;the green lights show up steady for a couple of seconds, no fan no display and then lights goes of,
I have tested it with the power cable , with charged batery alone , with / without RAM memory it seems that the
problem is in the processor or the board

It happens when the Prozessor gets heated up so fast. I have the same problem. Nothing helps. Sorry.
