SOURCE: dell latitude d600 doesn't turn on

The test Dell advises to narrow down this issue is to remove the battery, hard drive, ram, and optical drive.  Next plug in the a/c power cord and you should get some LED's coming on. If not it points to the motherboard.

This line of hp notebooks is the most notorious for power jack issues. There a re a few different symtpoms but 95% of all problems can be fixed with a power jack resoldering or replacement. It very rarely damages anything else on the motherboardis and seldom has anything to do with the power adapter/supply itself. There are a few options:

1) take to computer repair shop and get new power adapter. (As this requires a complete tear down of the notebook, it can be a bit expensive in terms of labor. The part is less than $10 on ebay and is readily available. You can download the service manual and break down the notebook yourself and take just the mb and new adapter to the shop and save some money. I don't recommend attempting to soldering on the MB yourself

2) If you don't need portability as much as just being able to use the laptop at home, then purchase an xb2000 expansion base from craigslist and power thru the docking port on the side. Be sure and confirm that the adapter is included with the purchase as some owners may have discarded it since their particular model didn't need it.

3) If you can manage to get an XC1000 cable for a reasonable price off ebay or craigslist, this is a portable option. However, as they stopped making these All-In-One media cables a while back, those who have them know their value and command a pretty hefty price. I personally would rather pay a computer repair shop a $150 before I pay some person who capitalizes on my misfortune.

4) I am in the process of confirming this least expensive solution but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
-- adapter from the xb2000 expansion base (you can pick these up cheap or free)
-- xc2000 all-in-one media cable ($35 - $50)
-- 120w power adapter for Presario R4000,R4100, R4200, and Pavilion ZV6000 (oval shaped multi-pin connection required.) Note: The original lower wattage adapter will not work. ($25 - $30)
Although this solution may cost a little bit depending on how creative you are, you can sell your old power adapter to offset the cost of the new adapter AND you can sell all 3 for what you paid when the laptop dies completely.

5) the paper clip trick has been known to solve a few problems where the connection in the socket is the problem

Ultimately, you can purchase a MB and replace it your self, the MBs run around $150 and you can use the service manual to break down the notebook. However, this is only a recommended solution if you have video problems since breaking down the laptop is just time consuming and the soldering of the power adapter is cheap

If you can open up the monitor from the back and get the cover off. Look on the power board and see if there are any puffy capacitors, most of the caps will have a silver flat top but if there are any bad ones, they will have a puffy top that stick up.

If you see any then make sure you replace them with capacitors of the same Uf rating and at least the same volts or more.

If you don't see any puffy caps then that means the screen is bad and the whole monitor would need to be replaced.

my_secret_mb, Stop pressing the ON/OFF switch! It's broke!!! The unit's internal power supply will need some work done on it. Unit will need to be evaluated first!! This is a common problem for ALL LCD monitors. If unit out of warranty period, then you will need to do some intense speed reading of my higher page number responses in my fixya profile to understand the problem your cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp back-lit lcd monitor has and the options that you have. You will also need to base your decision on the age and total number of "ON" hours unit has seen during it's lifetime. Do not dispair or feel sad about what has happened to your monitor. A low side guess would be 50 units/day fail world-wide. Your unit may have failed filter capacitors or possible failed solder joint on printed circuit board. (thermally intermittant) I hope this helps you. 12fixlouie north of "Windy City" USA

Samsung R480 Will not charge or turn on but indicator lights flash or stay on.


Swap out the ram one at a time testing to see if you can power up, making sure there is one in the memory slot at all times, if this works the piece in your hand is defective, no difference! the motherboard has major issues.

When i turn it on the screen stays black and only the power button light stays green, how do i fix this?


Hi,

The issue you have may or may not be resolved by doing this. Most of the time this issue is caused by electrical charges which are stuck in the motherboard. But, just a heads up, again this may not resolve the issue especially if we have a hardware issue with the computer;specifically with the LCD or the inverter cable;which connects the LCD to the motherboard. In the mean time let's do this:

1. Turn the computer off by pressing the power button for about 5seconds or so, make sure no
lights are on the computer
2. Unplug the AC Adapter or the power cord of the computer, if you're using it
3. Take the battery out of the computer
4. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds
5. Put the battery back in
6. Plug the AC Adapter or power cord back into the computer
7. Turn the computer back on

If this fixed the issue, good for us. However, contact your computer manufacturer if your computer is still under warranty or the local technicians in your area if not. Because obviously there is nothing we can do on FixYa! when it comes to hardware issues. Thank you for choosing Fixya! Enjoy!

hello

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

My HP Pavilion M90 monitor won't turn on. Every time I press the on button I hear a clicking sound from the back of the monitor. It sounds like it's trying to power up but it doesn't do anything. Is there...


Hello

Do a hard reset on the laptop by removing all cords and connections from the computer, including the power cord. Turn the computer over and slide the tab next to the battery, then lift the battery out of its compartment.

Eject any SD cards currently inserted in the SD card slot by pressing on them, then remove them from the slot completely. Hold the computer's "Power" button down for at least 15 seconds, then plug the power cord into the computer and turn it on.

Watch to see if the LED lights near the "Caps Lock" and "Num Lock" illuminate. If the lights do not turn on and the computer's screen remains blank, inspect the power cord and AC adapter for damage and replace them if necessary.

Leave the power cord plugged into the computer and snap the battery back into its slot. Allow the computer to sit for at least 30 minutes, then unplug the power cord and press the "Power" button again to see if the computer will turn on.

Plug the power cord back into the computer and try to turn it on again. If the computer turns on, replace the battery with a new one. If the computer still does not turn on, take the computer to a repair shop.

How do I turn it on


Hello.

To power on the Gateway VX750, press the power button on the front. The power button has 3 sides with a "G" in the middle.

The LED indicates the power status of the monitor.
  • Not lit - The monitor is turned off or does not have power connected.
  • Blinks one time and then goes off - The LED blinks one time when the monitor's power cord is plugged into an AC outlet to indicate that power is detected.
  • Lit solid blue - The monitor is turned on and active.
  • Blinking blue - The monitor is in power saving mode. Before entering power saving mode, a message briefly appears.
Hope this helps.

Ist there a driver that will allow my Northgate 7nss monitor work properly with windows 7?


1.Drivers are usually given by the manufacturer to work with the latest OS (operating Systems).
Sometime Windows 7 will detect the device and input the drivers it has in it "cab files" but if not present it will prompt you to look online to the manufactures website for updates or it will ask you to run the compatibility wizard .
2. Windows 7 has an option also to run the device in another operating system mode such as Windows XP and may have the drivers stored in the "cab files" for Windows XP for example. If not the manufacturers device will not run in the Windows 7 environment.

You have to open uo the set and check for 12vdc feeding the backlight inverter circuits, if you do have 12vdc then the inverter circuits may be bad, also look for bad caps. see example of a couple years old failed monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Strange ac cord/power issues


Hello my friend, Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thank you
