Dell Latitude D800 :: Will Not Power On / No BIOS Information Displayed / No Power On Self Test
Apr 16, 2013
I have a Dell Latitude D800 that will not power on. When the power button is pushed the green power indicator light comes on, the CDROM spins for a moment, but then nothing happens, there is no BIOS information displayed, no power on self test, no Dell logo. It just sits there with the green power light on.I have tried removing the power & battery then pressing the power button for 10 seconds (actually, I have tried as long as 60 seconds). I have tried to turn on with the power connected but not the battery. I have tried removing the connector cable for the power button and the connector cable for the display and then reseating them.
My Latitude D800 laptop recently had trouble to turn on. When pressed the power button (no matter how hrad or hard long to press), nothing happened, totally dead, power light didn't turn on at all. I tried with battery (two batteries) only, AC power only and both, same thing, but sometimes it could be turned on when I waited for a while or came back later and tried again.
I have a inspiron 1521 that i have been having problems with. It's an older laptop.
When i turn on the power, nothing is displayed on the screen. When i hold fn+power I get 2 flashing lights and one solid. The num lock and cap lock flash. I don't really know what this means. I have also done a BIST and the laptop seems to pass this just fine. (Different colors flash on the screen). I have tried removing ram 1 at a time but it always blinks the same lights. Could this be a problem with the motherboard?
My son has a Dell Inspiron 1545 ... The problem with its is, that it receives power into the unit but nothing is displayed onto the screen and therefore, nothing shows or happens. I know that the unit is receiving power due to the fact that I can open the Disk Drive. I have attempted the flea start without any success.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an e6530. I changed a BIOS boot setting from Legacy to UEFI. Now the laptop doesn't even show me a BIOS screen at startup. The screen is backlit, so power is on, but shows nothing. The drive light flickers a few times, but no matter how long I wait, nothing appears.
I can't even switch it back to Legacy because I can't get into the BIOS. Hitting F12 after power on does nothing. Is there some way to get it back to Legacy mode? Or simply reset the BIOS to default settings?
Just did some tests on my new laptop: (No, I don't write this software -- but some people are mighty interested in detailed power consumption statistics)
The BatteryBar Pro software has a Watt-Meter... I decided to play with the power consumption of my new Timeline 1810T 11.6" laptop (Core2 Duo ULV 1.3 Ghz, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD). These are really high performance laptops in a netbook-size form factor.

About a year ago I had the problem and really didn't get anywhere near fixing the problem. So here I am again hoping maybe someone can help.
Here is the issue,
My Laptop just suddenly died after checking how many mem stick I had.
I turn off my laptop, flipped it over, romoved the mem cover, and replaced the cover and flipped back over.. (I just removed the cover, didn't though anything) When I tried to power it up got nothing. (No lights)
The laptop won't power up even with the battery. I do notice the battery light is lit when it needs charging. I tried my spare battery, it charge it but doesn't turn on.
Right i try switch the D430 its powers on the 3 leds all come on also the power led and hdd led
then before i get a screen or bios it dies (about 3 seconds) can power it back up but same happens ive removed everything i can to just run the bare bones no wifi no BT
when i take the hdd out the led doesnt show when i power up so the board knows its missing ive added some ddr to see if it was the onboard ram still no joy tried pressing F2 and power to get a error code but nothing happens just powers off again
tried external monitor nothing tried litheum battery tested 3v tried without litheum battery tried with and without hdd Also tried with and without main battery just with ac adaptor
I have a dell latitude d531 i cant get it to power on and have no clue whats wrong... I have tried taking out the battery and power on with just the plug but still nothing the power light will come on for about 4-5 sec then shut off again... I think the battery is shot too because it will not charge when i plug in the power cord the green battery light comes on for 1-2 sec then off again and sometimes it will come back on flashing orange.
I pushed the Fn and F1 (which I thought would put it to sleep as I do with my ThinkPad) and it shut down. When I tried to restart later I wouldn't. I push the power button and the power light comes on for ~5 sec, the bluetooth flashes the WiFi flashes and then nothing. If I hold the power button down it seems to do this cycle continuously. If I do the same and hold down the Fn button the 3 lock lights are added to the cycle. I have unplugged the power, removed battery (which shows fully charged) held the power button for 20 seconds to clear all residual power. It does the same on AC or battery alone.
The laptop wont turn on when its plugged in it says it's charging then when i attempt to turn it on it sounds like its booting up but within about 3 seconds it shuts off without the display ever turning on the LED light showing the battery is charging then begins to flash and the other 2 LED lights stay on. I was on the laptop not even an hour before this happened until it died and it hadn't moved after that so I'm not sure whats causing the issue.
I have a Dell Latitude D800 I bought in Summer 2003. I've never really used it away from a power outlet in almost six years of ownership, aside from one time a few weeks ago - when the battery died within 15-20 minutes of powerwing on.
Is it normal for a six year old notebook battery to not hold a charge, even if it's never really been used, and has just been plugged into power (or shut down) constantly throughout the bulk of that time?
Recently I just bought(buy) the Intel Pentium M 745(1.8Ghz) chipset & Nvidia GeForce Fx Go5650 (128mb).
My technician did the work to install the new items, but when I get the laptop back I checked it and the GeForce doesnt work properly, FPS from 0-1, my old 32mb video card used to work on low at 25-30FPS at my LFS simulator game racing.
Yesterday my technician download another GeForce 5650 driver and seems works better 50-60FPS at the same game. BUT now the problem is that the Processor Fan start running after 1min of playing and the laptop get freeze, 1-2FPS
Our Studio 1749 will retain a solid connection when the power adapter is plugged into the power board along the side of my laptop. I am unsure if the pins residing in the power board are pushed toward each other so as to not retain connection when the adpater in plugged into the laptop.
When I pull the power cord to switch to battery power while in Windows my lcd goes to black. The only way I get my video back is a hard reset and reboot. Later on I tried this and everything was back to normal. Why is this happening? Is this some weird standby?
I am trying to see what might be wrong with the Dell Latitude 2110. When I close the lid power shuts off. You can not turn it back on unless you take out the batter and power supply then plug it back in. The power settings in windows xp are all to never shut off. I also replaced the power jack and it did not change. I did a dell test and it gave me a error 2000-0412 auxilary lcd cable not detected error 0412 and error 0411 lcd board not detected error code 2000-0411. I have a display and everything just have the power problem when shutting the lid.
I have a Latitude D531 laptop that when I hit the power button, the light comes on but goes off after about 10 seconds. This began when I had it on ansd all of a sudden shut down. One of Dell's people told me to try something but it still shuts off after five or six seconds. I thought it might be a short but am unsure.
i have a number of Dell D600 latitude laptops in the organisation,all identicial. Strange thing is that one of them will not work with the docking station, any Docking station to think of it. this is the error message i get " Your power adapter does not supply enough power to run the attached docking station" press F1 to shut down
I bought a new docking station to improve my workplace at home. Unfortunately I wasn't able to start a system because of warning during a booting sequence : "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge....etc". After that waring the only possible action is pressing F1 button to shutdown a system.I connect an AC adapter directly without a docking station, a system started properly.
