Dell :: Latitude D600 Will Not Boot Up Unless The Power Cord Plugged In

Sep 22, 2009

My D600 will not boot up unless the power cord is plugged in. Is there some switch that I hit by mistake? Can this be corrected?

I guess basically it doesn't work on the battery unless it is plugged in but the power shows 100 % for the battery

Dell Latitude D600 :: It Is Charging When AC Adapter Is Plugged In

Apr 5, 2013

I just bought a dell latitude d600 and I have never had a laptop before. Is there a way to tell if it is charging when the ac adapter is plugged in? I bought it for parts or not working and I,m trying to put it back together. I also have been looking for an ide hard drive for the caddy. I didn't know if you could change that to s sata drive or not.

Dell :: Power Cord Light Turns Off When Plugged Into Laptop Short Circuit?

May 29, 2010

So last night my laptop was running fine on battery power, but then it was running low, so I plugged in the power cord. Nothing happened. Since the adapter at the laptop end was falling apart and duct-taped anyways, I figured it was just conking out, but then I saw the indicator light on the power brick was off.

With some experimentation, I found that if I moved it to a different outlet, the light would come back on, but if I plugged it into my laptop, the light would die, and I would have to again move it to a different outlet (the same one as first would work fine) to get the indicator light back on. It works in other Dell laptops. Other adapters do the exact same thing.

So I'm guessing there's a problem with my laptop wiring that's causing a short or something. (Apologies for my shallow electrical knowledge.) But it was working last night on battery power. Until the battery died completely this morning, it would power up. So it's not an electrical problem that kills the laptop.

Feb 19, 2013

I have a Latitude E5520 that is having some strange issues.  If I have i plugged in to a power cord, close the lid and disconnect the power cord, the unit shuts off.  Sometimes when undocking, the unit will shut off as well.

I have checked the power settings and confirmed that when the lid is closed, no action should be taken.

The battery is fully charged and the laptop runs fine on the battery.

This has the latest BIOS revision A09.....

Dell Latitude E7440 :: When Plug In Power Cord Into Computer / Screen Freezes On

Apr 17, 2014

I've had my laptop for a little bit under 2 months, so these are the things I have noticed. 

Issue number 1: When you plug in the power cord into the computer, the screen freezes on what it is currently on. I noticed this issue because occasionally when I plug in my power cord, and try to use the mousepad to select something, the mouse pointer is gone! I have to unplug-replug the power cable to get the mouse pointer to show again. It seems to have to do with the screen

Issue number 2: when I carry my E7440 around in my bad, or have it shut for long periods of time >3 hours (I just simply close the lid), the computer will SHUT DOWN. The thing will shut down completly, even though I simply closed the lid! At first I thought it was just going into hibernate, so I disabled hibernate in my power settings. But nope, even when the computer is asleep, it will occasionally shut it self down for no reason at all.

Just now, I closed the lid on my laptop, and put in in my bag, then walked to my office about 10 minutes away. When I sat down at my desk and opened my laptop, to my surprise, it had shut down by itself! All of my open windows, browsers, and applications were closed, and upon opening chrome and microsoft word, I was greeted by "your browser did not shut down correctly" and "microsoft word has recovered files". This points to the conclusion that it was not hibernates fault, but instead a issue with the laptop itself shutting down when it is put in sleep. This issue needs to be rectified immediately if it is a widespread issue.  

Issue number three: When the computer comes back from hibernate or sleep, the computer is very very sluggish, even when plugged in. It is sluggish forever, OR until the power plan is set from whatever it is to "high performance". upon switching to the previous powerplan from high performance, the swiftness of the system is restored. This indicates to me that the system is throttling itself after it resumes from hibernation, why. This needs to be fixed; many people (myself included) just thought that the system itself was slow and underpowered, not realizing that it was just throttling itself when it emerged from sleep or hibernate.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z500 Won't Boot Up Without Power Cable Plugged In

Jan 9, 2014

My z500 cannot boot up without power cable plugged in. Usually,a few seconds after I saw the lenovo logo,the system will suddenly shut down just like the battery was removed.however,if I connect powercable to the laptop and power on,everything is fine,I can enter windows 8,or ubuntu,after I enter OS,I can disconnect the power cable without any problems.the battery is healthy and can last for more than 2 hours.

So far I tried the following methods:
1.update BIOS
2.update battery firmware
3.reset BIOS
none of them worked for me....

Dell :: Latitude D600 Getting BSOD

Feb 2, 2010

I was checking my email then all of the sudden, I got Dell's BSOD. I restarted it, when I got into desktop, BSOD again. So I decided restore (clone, I used it 2 times before this happened). The restoration was successful, but when I boot it up, after Windows logo, nothing, blank screen. So I did it again, restoring it. But again, blank screen.
Then I decided to do a fresh clean install of XP, but when I tried to delete that partition, BSOD. I booted up again from the XP CD, I found it had been deleted. So I made a new partition, and format it (NTFS - slow method), but when it got into the middle of copying the files, it said it can't copy the files.

In the moment, I am formatting the hard drive into massive one, instead of two partition. I doubt it that it will work.

What's the problem with my Dell Latitude D600?

Do you think that's the hd?

Just FYI, before this happen, I was thinking of upgrading the hd into bigger hd.

Edit: Yup, it failed. Btw, my D600 is at least 5 years old, original hd.

Dell :: Power Cord Compatibility

Dell :: Latitude D600 Dead. DC Jack Issue?

Jul 26, 2009

The unit does not power ON using the AC adapter, no LED lights. I tried using a different working AC adapter from a 600m and didn't work either.

Then I installed a charged battery pack from the 600m into the D600 bay and it power on just fine.

I googled the issue and one suggestion is that the DC power jack could be toast, so I bought a new one over at DCpowerjacks.net
I have it replace by a professional, and after I reassembled the machine the problem persists.

Dell :: Latitude D600 Won't Play Burnt Dvds

Nov 23, 2009

Does anyone know why my Latitude D600 won't play back-up (burnt) dvds, but it plays the original disc? When I put in the burnt disc I hear a clicking sound, but nothing else happens.

I have been trying to use burnt -R discs and dual layer discs; these discs play on other dvd players. Should my laptop plays these discs? And if so why doesn't it? I believe it still has the original drive in it; I bought the laptop second hand.

Dell Latitude D600 :: Computer Keeps Disconnecting From The Internet?

Apr 26, 2013

I just got BT Infinity and whenever I download something or run speed test (speedtest.com) my computer disconnects from the internet and shortly after connects again. How do i fix this? I am running a dell latitude d600 with windows xp. Before bt infinity i just had a normal bt home hub and that worked fine. I don't think this is happening on other computers connected to the network but i can't be sure. I am using Wi-Fi, not ethernet and i haven't tried connecting via ethernet yet but the hub is in a different room and i cant move anything from room to room because of the set up.

A previous answer i got was to re intall my wireless router. I thought this had worked, but it only suspended the time before the disconnect for about 1 min. Then it just went back to disconnecting straight away again.

Dell :: Latitude D600 Recover Back To Factory Settings

Feb 23, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D600 which i bought a few months ago second hand, It came with charger and thats it. No recovery disk or nothing. Laptop worked perfect and is a really good laptop. However I have so many viruses on my laptop, I have ran all types of AVG's, adware scanners, and much more. Its cleared alot of the viruses but still the laptop is not working properly.

I would like to restore the laptop back to its factory settings, i have backed up all my data on an external harddrive so its all good. I checked on google and it says something about Pressing F11 + Ctrl or something like that and it has a recovery procedure in the laptop allready. I dont think D600 has that feature and guessing i need a recovery disk. I have looked on ebay and cant find any, Im not even sure what type of recovery disk to get because i found a few, prices were ranging from 30-35 and i cant afford that as i am a student.

Is there a way where i can download some sort of recovery software for dell and burn it onto a disk or something, I looked on google but there is no detailed sources telling me about this,

how i can restore my dell latitude D600 back to its brand new settings without having to buy the recovery disk.

Dell Latitude D600 :: A06 BIOS Update - Battery Not Charging

Sep 10, 2003

There seems to be a bug in the A06 BIOS update for the Latitude D600.  The power supply that shipped with the machine is Model AA22850 for the PA-12 family.  This power supply charged the battery fine when I received the computer.  I updated the BIOS recently to A06 version and then started receiving a BIOS error upon boot up saying that it did not recognize the power supply.  I replied to the error message and went into the BIOS setup and sure enough the battery status was not showing as charging.  There green charging LED no longer was lit up and upon going into Windows and looking in the Power options in control panel the battery was not showing charging as well.

We happened to have a power supply for a Latitude D800 at the office and I plugged it in and it started charging the battery immediately.  I also did not receive a BIOS error on boot either.  That power supply is for the PA-10 family and has more current output.  Evidently this new A06 BIOS is looking for that power supply.  So....I have to get a larger power supply to have my system now charge.

Dell :: Power Cord/jack/battery Voltage: 600m

Jun 15, 2009

First post here...
Here's the deal, my 600m won't charge the battery anymore and will not run off of the power cord.

The power cord is showing 19.5v which is correct.

The back of the power adapter jack on the mobo is showing about 3.5v when plugged in and the two outside pins that charge the battery are only showing about 0.02v. Is this normal voltage or do you think the mobo broken?

I'm not really sure which of the battery charging pins to check the voltage from and can't find a diagram of it anywhere.

Apple :: Power Cord Seems To Randomly Fail

May 10, 2009

I keep my computer plugged in when I'm at home, but my power cord keeps "shutting itself off" and stops charging. So sometimes I check my battery power and there's like 24% left. My battery seems to be holding a charge for now, but my power cord seems to randomly fail. Never in my life have I ever heard of power cords failing-I'm sure it happens but this is ridiculous.

Dell Latitude E5430 :: Will Boot Only Some Of The Time When Power Button Is Pressed

Jan 26, 2015

I have an E5430 that when the power button is pressed will not post every time. It is random. I get the power light only. Holding the power button down until it clicks off and pressing it again on the sixth or 19th time it will finally light off and post and head into boot. I have run the full diagnostics and no problems are found. The diagnostic finds no problems so I am wondering if this is a power button problem or something not tied to the MB. The same thing occurs with different batteries and power adapters.

Acer :: Travelmate 4010 Power Cord/jack Not Working

Aug 9, 2008

Travelmate 4010. I've had it for about 3 years now, and over the past *thinks* 6 months or so the power cord had been replaced twice because it broke. But it wasn't really the cord itself that broke the first time. Something inside the jack is broken and now the cord (a new one) has to be positioned just the right way so it doesn't switch to battery mode. I use it mostly on my bed, which probably doesn't help, but at one point I had to have it on a desk with the cord taped to the lid so it wouldn't move and kill the battery (which doesn't last that long). I couldn't even close the lid so I just had the monitor shut off after a minute. but I did get a new cord and started using it on my bed, storing it underneath when I'm not using it. After a while, though, the cord started to do the same thing and now I'm sitting here trying not to move on the bed too much so it doesn't disconnect. I'd like to get a new notebook, but I can't afford it.

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?
