Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600: Pentium M 1.6GHz, 512MB memory, 60GB hard drive, DVD-ROM/CD-RW, 56K Modem, Network Ca... (LATITUDED600PENTIUMM16) PC Notebook ?

I have a Dell D600 laptop and just put a brand new battery in it. However, the new battery is not charging and the battery light still flashes green 3 times and then flashes red once, then green 3 times, and then red once, on and on. I know that the battery is good because I just purchased it. I have tried several times to reseat the battery, however I can't get the laptop to recognize it and recharge it. What do you recommend?


Answers :

These are the steps out of the user guide that I used when I had the \015\012same problem:

Total Power Failure When Using a Battery
If an AC adapter is not \015\012connected to your computer, the computer's power source
is a \015\012battery. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, \015\012the
battery needs to be charged. If the battery is flashing green \015\012and amber, the
battery may be defective. To troubleshoot this \015\012problem, use the following
procedure.
1. Turn off the computer \015\012and peripherals, and disconnect them from AC power.
2. Reseat each \015\012installed battery by removing it and then replacing it.
3. Turn on \015\012the computer. Does the green power indicator light up?
Allow one \015\012minute for the computer to initialize its components before checking
for\015\012 signs of power.
Yes. Continue to step 4.
No. Use the AC adapter\015\012 to connect your computer to AC power. If the computer
operates \015\012normally when using AC power, go to step 7. If the computer does not
boot\015\012 when using the AC adapter, see the previous subsection, "Total Power
Failure\015\012 When Using the AC Adapter."
4. Does the battery indicator flash \015\012amber or show a a steady amber light?
Yes. The battery needs to be \015\012charged. Go step 5.
No. Go to step 7.
5. Connect the computer to\015\012 AC power, and fully charge the battery.
For instructions, see the \015\012topic titled "Charging the Battery" in the online
System User's \015\012Guide.
6. As the battery charges, does the green battery indicator \015\012light up?
Yes. Go to step 9.
No. Go to step 7.
7. Is the \015\012battery indicator flashing green and amber?
Yes. Your computer may \015\012be in a hot environment. Charging the battery in this
condition may \015\012affect the life span of the battery. Continue to step 8.
No. The \015\012problem is resolved.
8. Disconnect the computer from AC power. Is \015\012the the battery indicator still
flashing amber?
Yes. You may \015\012have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is \015\012resolved.
9. Remove the battery, and press its test button. Is the \015\012uppermost indicator in
the charge gauge of the battery flashing?
Yes.\015\012 You have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem \015\012is resolved.
10. If a spare battery is available, fully charge it, \015\012and then install it in the
computer.
11. Turn on the computer. \015\012Is the power indicator off?
Yes. Your original battery is defective.\015\012 Call Dell for a replacement. (See
Chapter 5, "Getting Help," for
instructions.)\015\012
No. Call Dell for technical assistance. (See Chapter 5, "Getting \015\012Help," for
instructions.)\015\012\011\011
