Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Power up I know my battery wont charge but it has always worked with the charger plugged in, now it won't power up. Also can the sensitivity of the scroll pad be adjusted less sensitive, my fingers are heavy hitting??! My laptop is a Dell Lattitude D800


Answers :

It sound like the power converter on the laptop may be dead. This knocks the house voltage down to an amperage that can be used by the laptop.

Check and see if the laptop is still under warranty with your service tag at http:\\\\support.dell.com. If you need any other help, just respond to my post.
