    I do can start up the laptop only if the battery(completely discharged) installed and Power connected. If I remove the battery and connect the AC adapter I can not start up. Power light is glows but when I try to start up the laptop light goes down and then glows again but nothing happens.

    It doesn't help. I can start only from the battery. When I try start from the Power Adapter power led is glow but nothing happens after pressing the start button. If the Power Adapter connected to wall and the battery inserted the battery charge led is not glow and the battery is not charging.

Get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

smtime low cmos battery could cause the pc not to start

a defected cpu and / or ac adapter will do too

Dell optiplex gx620 orange color on the sturt boton

A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Hi, I forgotten my password for my N560 Pocket PC...Is there any way to reset the device or access it to change the password? Thanks

OK so you have to perform hard reset.
You do this by pressing and holding the power and calender button, then pressing and releasing the reset button. You continue to hold the power and calender buttons for a few seconds. When you release the power and calender buttons the unit should beep and then reset.
