Dell Latitude C610 Issues

\015 Hello, I have a Dell Latitude c610, I had upgraded it to Xp and haven't been using it as i have a few computers at home, I pulled it out about a month ago, and it wouldn't start, the 3 lights up the top and the lights on the side would come on for about 2 seconds and the go back off, the screen itself wouldn't have anything on it just stayed black, so having another one exactly the same here I transfered everything from it but kept the same mother board, put it back together and start it up and presto it works, the next day I go to turn it on and I have encounted the same problem from before, I was starting to think that it could be the BIOS battery so have disconnected it from the mother board and tried it and it works again, so could anyone be able to tell me how to fix this from happening again in the future? Many thanks.\015

Hi,

My compliments for having done all that. Not that many users would be inclined to go so far.

In any case on to your concern. Having been in storage for some time, it would be normal for the battery (and the memory battery) to have drained out. Initial powering of the unit from the storage would entail the battery gobbling up all the juices that the adapter can put out. What I would suggest is simply let it charge for a considerable length of time, say overnight.

You can try running the PC without the main battery. it it works normally then you have just verified that the main battery was consuming at least initially so much power that the charger/adapter has none left to power the laptop.

If even without the battery and the unit still fails to powerup, then next course of action would be to check for the section/area where the power drops off. This could include the connector/jack where the adapter plug comes in, the regulator connectors and/or the regulator circuit

At times, this could also be due to some corrosion or dirt in the jack and or connectors. it is also possible that the battery might have leaked "a bit" and has affected the board or the contacts/connectors.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa..
