I have a Dell Latitude laptop computer, and all of a sudden, it has just quit turning on. I press the power button, and all of the symbols come up on the display screen on the keyboard, then all but three turn off, then nothing happens. The computer never starts running. Any possible solutions, or is this just a dead computer?
take a SMALL screwdriver...(since its a DELL I would say a big sledge hammer but this rarley fixes it...well working fix that is ...anyway) and lossen (yes loosen ...not tighten...how they got tightened is anybodys guess) the screws on the back of the laptop...no this is not voodoo..was actullay told by a Dell techsupport about a month ago when a client latatude wouldnt boot...for some reason ...at least in my case...losseing the scews solved the problem... Just a thought....
could try a hard reset, take out the battery and the ac cable and hold down the power button for about 10-15 seconds put the ac cable and battery back in and then try and start the system up, other than that you could try and reseat the ram, as in take it out and then put it back in.
Do you still have warrenty? If not then Pseudocyber has an excellent idea... sounds like the mainboard needs to be replaced thats the thing about laptops... something breaks on it and you pretty much have to replace to whole thing.
Hey, that whole top of a building thing sounds good. I might just have to climb to the top of this building and drop it off right onto the sidewalk. Thanks for the great idea. Now, I just need to find somebody with that camera. Hmm.
