Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?
Dell Inspiron 600 Laptop, stop working.
\015 My Dell Inspiron 6000\015\012refuses to Boot up. When I press the power or the play button to turn\015\012it on, the Numbers, caps and scroll lights flash as usual. The power\015\012light and the one next to that also turns on (the light in-between the\015\012power indicator and the charger indicator) but then the numbers and\015\012scroll light turns of but the caps lock light remains on. It then\015\012flashes approximately ten time before the power cuts. \015\012\015\012I have also noted that I can hear the hard drive start to spin before the entire system shuts\015\012down. I haven't downloaded anything or installed anything new, however,\015\012recently my charger stopped working and I replaced it with a new one.\015\012But I highly doubt that that is the problem. \015\012\015\012I would seriously appreciate any and all help with this issue.\015\012\015\012Thank you,Carmelito\015
This is generally a problem with the battery or a memory chip. Start by removing the battery and starting up on the power supply only. Dell batteries are notorious for causeing a no start. Then try removing the memory and try one chip at a time in both slots. If neither of these work, then I'm afraid you have a failed system board component, ans you will probably want to take it in for a professional diagnostics. Also, you can find a diagnostics light codes list for your machine at Dell's support site.
