    There is an IC burned out. The IC is located under the mountingscrew of the cover from the memorymodules. It's a 8 pens integrated circuit.

    So, there will be no switching power on, with both energy sources.

    I need the number of the ic. Please help

    I have this same problem and when I spoke with tech support at Dell they said it was too expensive to fix; I needed to look at a new laptop purchase. Does anyone know what it should cost to fix this problem with the motherboard? Would you recommend that I just toss it?

Dell power jacks are notorious for losing the solder connections. If all else fails remove the motherboard, use a solder wick and remove the old solder and resolder the connections. There are four pins that are close together so you need to make certain you do not over solder. Hope this helps

Disconnect the power and the battery. Hold the power button in for up to one minute to discharge the laptop.

Try starting it again.

Why my lap top battery power goes off soon while starting?

These laptops are notorious for developing battery issues. We've got one at our house that would basically be a paperweight without a charger and external monitior. The best fix for this is to buy a new battery.

I have a dell latitude d600 when i press the power button with the battery in(just the battery) nothing happens. when i plug the adapter in with/without the battery power comes on and the hd light flashes...

Can you hear the fans starting up.....if you can plug your laptop into a external monitor and see if you can see it boot sound as if you may have a short on the battery pack...

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 Latitude d600 starts up, loads Dell screen, but stops there

try removing the battery . wait 30 minutes. plug the battery back in and try again.

Dell D600 battery

Sounds like your battery is bad.Some dead cells i tend to think

Dell D600 laptop will not turn on.

I also have 2 D600 and already disassembled them a couple of times :)...I think this might be wrong with your d600 since it doesn't work with the battery either:
under the grey plastic cover with the power on/off buttons and the volume control buttons there is a small electronic board which is attached to the mainboard only by a plug and a socket, so it is removable...a very common problem in the d600 is this connection: either this small power board is simply broken, which is very unlikely unless it suffered heavy external damage :)...or whats more likely, that the solderings of the plug to this board lost their contact OR that the solderings of the socket on the mainboard itself are old from wear and also lost contact and don't conduct anymore :P....I have this problem in 2 d600 but not with the power button but only with the volume buttons :)....
you can try the following to test if this is the cause:
take off the grey hinge cover with the buttons and press a little bit on the right corner of the power board and try, at the same time, to power it on by pushing the fourth of the buttons
if you have trouble taking off the hinge cover or any other questions, or if you find the problem, just send me an email...I'm glad to help...I can also provide you with some helping pics to disassemble the stuff :)
