Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

My dell latitude won't turn on. The battery light is blinking on and off but it won't charge. I just bought a new charger I push the power button and it powers on and the led lights flash then it quits. Is it the battery?


Answers :

Okay I am shocked to see all the responses about a batter or the hard Drive. The fact is the unit and symptom is known to be caused by a bad or faulty mother board.

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power\015\012adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,\015\012remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &\015\012see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter\015\012with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case\015\012we can suspect that the battery is defective.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
