Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Power light flashes on and off but will not turn on. Dell Lattitude c600. Was working then all of a sudden now won't start. Tried reseating RAM and HDD but to no avail. Any ideas


Answers :

Try this quick fix: Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot. Then shutdown your computer and put the battery pack back in.

If that doesn't work, it could most likely be the cause of electrical shorts. Check to make sure that there are no frayed wires or cables inside your computer, and if any are found, replace them.

Electrical shorts can also be caused by something, like screws, coming in contact with the motherboard or other hardware. Pick up your computer case and really gently shake it side to side. A screw may have come loose in the case and is rolling around in it, so you will hear a rattling sound if that's the case. A few light shakes will usually knock it loose and \015\012onto the bottom of the case.

Your computer's power supply may have failed. Test your power supply for failure (use a multimeter or power supply tester if you know how to). Or take it to your local PC Repair shop to get it tested. Do not try to fix a power supply yourself without experience- it is highly dangerous. For instructions on how to use a multimeter, contact me (email address at bottom of message).

Hope this helps!
