Dell Inspiron 600m not starting up!

\015 My Dell Inspiron 600m laptop won't start up all of a sudden -- it was fine until just last night. When I try to power it on, the 'uppercase' light begins flashing for a few seconds before stopping. I even opened the memory case at the back, removed and replaced the memory cards... but still nothing. Any help (and soon) would be appreciated!\015\012\015\012I have the same problem with my Inspiron 600m. The power plug seems not working and I have changed a few of power cord and none of them helped. How do we fix it\015

Answers :

I had this same problem with my 600m laptop.  How many times do the lights flash, before they stop flashing?

Cause: There is a physical problem with the computer that it is detecting at startup diagnostics.

Solution:
You should have two pieces of RAM installed. Carefully, remove the memory slot cover.  Swap the 2 pieces of memory you have in there (please follow memory installation and removal for laptops to the letter, by never touching any of the electronic contacts and handling the memory from its sides). Make sure, they sit in the slot properly (to the best you can see). Then, place back the memory cover, very carefully, and screw in.  If you see the memory door cover not closing properly, the RAM might be improperly inserted.  Please go back to the swapping of RAM step. :)  

If this didn't work, 1 of the 2 RAM's you have are no longer functioning properly. Please follow the steps to openning the memory door again and remove RAM in "B" slot first.  Then close it and try to start the computer.

If it still doing the same light flashes, open the memory door and remove RAM in slot "A".  then place the RAM you removed from slot "B" into slot "A".  Then start the computer again.
