Dell Latitude C600 Won't Start

By Maeheathr
Dec 27, 2007
  1. I have a stupid Dell Latitude C600 laptop and when I try to turn it on the power light blinks repeatedly and all the other lights stay on a steady green. I can hear the fan on but nothing else comes on. I even plugged it into a monitor in case it was the LCD but I still get nothing. I took out the battery and plugged it in just from the power supply and still nothing. Could it be a dead hard drive? I looked at other threads and there was talk of Motherboard issues but non of my lights are blinking so I didn't think it could be that.
    Thank you in advanced for any help :)

    post in the correct forum next time. (mobile computing). if your mobo does not even post, then it is NOT the hard drive. you have a power issue. Either your battery is dead, the power adapter is faulty, or there is something else wrong. You should at least get a POST.

    read the NO POST guide in the guides forum and the bios beep guide appropriate to your system.
