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.

Dell Latitude D800 :: Power Light Didn't Turn On At All

Oct 1, 2008

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.

Dell :: D800 Will Not Power On

May 6, 2009

I have a D800 I haven't used in about 10 monthes. I took it out of the bag and charged the battery.

When I turn it on, it boots approximately one third of the way through the loading bar for the BIOS, and then it powers off.

I've tried it with both the power cable and battery, just power cable, and just battery; and it behaves the same way. Last time I used it, it was working fine.

Dell Inspiron 1521 :: When Turn On Power Nothing Is Displayed On Screen

Feb 14, 2013

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?

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Blank Screen At Power On After Switching BIOS To UEFI Boot

Aug 7, 2013

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?

Dell :: How Would I Go About Upgrading The RAM On My Latitude D800?

Apr 29, 2009

Either through Dell or on my own? I have 512MB but for the past year or so I have ALWAYS been over it for whatever reason (I blame Windows Search 4.0) and it's had a pretty negative effect.

Dell :: Latitude D800; Do I Have A Bad Video Card?

Mar 31, 2009

I just found you, glad to be here. I searched for this but came up empty.

Latitude D800, XP Pro:
I have crazy lines and colors on both the laptop screen AND external monitor at the same time. It also is present on both in Safe Mode.

Because it's both I'm thinking the video card is toast. I read that if it was the LCD or the Inverter, the external monitor should display fine.

Dell Latitude D630 :: Won't Power Up

Mar 8, 2013

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.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Won't Power On

Feb 5, 2013

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.

Dell :: Broke The Left Ctrl Key On My Latitude D800

Feb 12, 2009

I think I've bent one of the metal connecting parts on the actual keyboard too, so I think I'll need to replace the whole thing and not just the key.

In either case this key is not getting back on. Do current Dell Latitudes use the same keyboard, or am I going to have a hell of a time finding a replacement?

I took the key off because the button wasn't working, and sure enough there was a big wad of dust/hair blocking it...problem is I think I was too forceful when I removed it.

Notebook is a 2003 model.

Dell :: Latitude D800 Won't Hold A Charge Normal?

Jan 13, 2009

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?

Dell :: Switching From Ac Power To Battery Power Causes Black Screen

Dell Latitude D530 :: Daily Driver Won't Power Up?

Apr 29, 2013

Yesterday the system went down unexpectedly and without proper steps. I pressed the power button and it resumed nicely after running chkdsk.

Today it again went down unexpectedly and now will not power up. The green LED on the power cord blinks when plugged in to the laptop (but is steady 

if not plugged in to laptop).  The laptop is completely dark & quiet.

My battery has been fine but this system is acting the same whether my battery is "inserted" or "removed."

How can I further troubleshoot this without risking damage to my HDD? I have used two different power cords so far (they both do the blinking)
