Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Bad battery or bad motherboard?

\015 I'm a lab coordinator at an elementary school. We have 64 dell D510 latitude laptops. They are four years old and now out of warranty. The batteries started dying, I couldn't get them to hold a charge. I purchased new batteries and they would work for a few days. I was told by my IT dept that it is a bad motherboard and not a battery problem. Can this be true? How can 12 motherboards all go bad within in a few weeks. Any ideas? Thanks\015

Hi syungewaelte
\015\012
\015\012I had the same exact problem:
\015\0121. Old battery led blinking (green or yellow)
\015\0122. New battery worked ok for I guess 2 weeks
\015\0123. New battery stopped working (not charging)
\015\012
\015\012I already opened the laptop and cleaned it (nothing improved).
\015\012My new battery is a DELL original one.
\015\012
\015\012I already checked all the possible parameters with no results. I think we shouls start looking for new laptops.

\015\012Sorry..
Most Laptop batteries only lasts a couple of years under normal use. I would say four years old batteries are most likely at the end of its life. But you have to be careful when you buy replacement batteries. Some cheap imports on Ebay don't even have the same voltage as the original batteries. Did you get the batteries from Dell?

Bad motherboard I've been told that the motherboard is bad on my Dell Inspiron E1505 that is less than 2 years old. I thought it was the power cord because sometime it would charge and sometimes it wouldn't. Now it is dead. My question, if I replace the motherboard, will that fix the power problem and will it wipe my laptop set up clean or will it be the same as before we couldn't power it up anymore? I thought it was just the powerport going bad so I bought a docking station that charges throug
