Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Locks up and screen freezes. Will work after I push on it.

\015 I have a Dell Latitude D600 Laptop. The problem? It locks upWhen it locks up the screen freezes and absolutely nothing happens. I have to hold the power button to killWhen I try to turn it back on, the power light (only) blinks fast about 6 times and then goes off. Now, if I lift up on the front of my laptop and press down on the right side of the touchpad near the bottom of the keyboard, it will start properly.Not alot of pressure is being applied.and this works without fail.I have taken this laptop apart to see if anything is out of the ordinary. also unplugged and replugged everything (I could see) to make sure it was properly connected.It is also very hard if not impossible to duplicate the problem Thanks for your help\015

I think 6 flashes means memory issue. You might want to try and remove and re-insert the memory. Usually found underneath in a compartment held in with 1 screw. If this don't work, I would try and purchase new memory. This would be the cheapest and first thing to eliminate.
