Having problems with your Dell Latitude D800 Notebook ?

When I push the power button, the power button lights up, as do the lock lights. The lock lights turn off after about 3 secs, I hear the fan start, but nothing else happens. No screen, keyboard not responding, nothing. Any help?

Answers :

This may sound awkward, but, turn the unit over and tighten all available screws on the bottom. this should/ may solve your problem. This is a common problem with Dell laptops. If this does not solve your problem you may have to utilize a rescue disk. Thank you, Dana
This is due to a faulty power switch possibly.
the only way to tell is to have the switch removed and replaced.
this also could be a loose flex cable at the power switch.
