Having problems with your Dell Latitude D800 Notebook ?
Does not boot, seems to have no power - Dell Latitude D800 Notebook
Take out the battery and unplug from the AC adapter. Open your computer so you are facing the screen. There is a grey strip behind the keyboard that is about 1 inch on the left and a half inch on the right. It will say LATITUDE|D800 on it. Pry it open on both ends. On the right you will see a plug in device. Remove it from being seated and then reseat it. Replace the strip. Replace the battery and plug it all back in. I'll bet you that is all it takes. Boot it up and enjoy the rewards of computing in the new age of information and problem sharing.
It's hard to say with this few symptoms, but if it is known that the battery is run down and your power supply really does work, you will most likely have to get the power jack resoldered and reinforced. A very common thing that happens to laptops is that someone trips or otherwise yoinks on the cord and stresses the jack. This means neither will the computer get power nor will the battery ever get recharged. This is not difficult to do for someone who has been into a laptop before. Good luck.
