Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 600M Notebook ?

I dropped my dell inspiron notebook and now it won't come on

\015 Three little lights above the keyboard light up and the little light for power on comes on and that is it...they are on for say 7 seconds and then they all go off...no sounds, no screen no nothing! Is it fixable?\015

Answers :

I have encoutered this problem with this model before (I also own this model and encountered this problem as well), try the following:

-unplug power cord and remove battery
-flip up-side-down and locate compartment labeled with "M" near it (with 1 screw)
-using Phillips screw driver, unscrew this compartment open
-you'll see either 1 or 2 memory slots occupied. Please follow memory removal procedures to the letter before proceeding.
(by first making sure you're not wearing anything that can generate static (sweater, feet are on carpet/rug, swearing socks, combing your hair, etc). Static electricity is terminal to a computer (it will fry the internal components in seconds, permanently)
-do not touch the surface mounted components and only handle memory from its sides.
-slide the 2 silver metal "clamps" holding the memory in place away from the memory (both at the same time). the memory will poppup in a 30-45 degree angle (this is normal).
-slide the memory out. If you have 2, I want you to swap the memory from Slot A to Slot B (and vice versa). Remember how you removed the memory, you'll reverse this process to re-insert it on each Slot.
-After reinserting the memory, press down (in the direction it popped up) until you see/feel the 2 clamps taking a hold of it (almost like a click noise or feel to it). The clamps will hold the memory down in the original position you saw them when you opened the compartment.
-Now, place back the cover. If the cover is not going back on easily, re-inspect the memory and also there may be 1 wire (white in color) loose, please guide it in between the spacing between slot's A and B. then, retry closing the slot cover.
-screw closed the door (not too tightly, just enough until you feel a squeeze).
-flip laptop back to normal, reinsert battery and plug in power cord.

Most likely damage to the Motherboard at a minimum since the system will not stay powered on. If the system is an Inspiron 600m it may be more cost effective to replace than repair. Motherboards are about $100, on Ebay. If you damaged the system bad enough that it will not run the Hard Drive is likely shot too.\015\012\015\012Basically you remove all the removable units,(Battery, HDD< DC Drive, RAM, Modem, wireless card) then try to power it on, see if it does anything different. If no change, MB is likely Shot.\015\012\015\012If you get a change, then install RAM, see if system POSTS, if you can get inot BIOS, then start adding devices one at a time and replace the faulty ones.
