Dell D500 not starting
\015 Hi,I am also facing same problem. Can you tell me how to fix it without opening the parts of laptop , i dont have proper screw driver to open battery slot and RAM slot.\015\012\015\012my laptop start , blinks some light and stops , light with 'A' in caps blink for some time , but nothing appear on the screen and after some times it also stop blinking. last time it showed me blue screen and i restarted it and from that time it is not showing anything on screen.Thanks for your help in advance.my email id is [email protected],Amit Jain\015
It's unfotunate that you don't have the info from the blue screen, this would help tremendously. The blinking light is actually a code, a certain light will blink a certain number of times for a specific code. Go to Dell's support site and find the light codes for your machine, this will help in narrowing down the problem area. I believe you're going to need the tools to remove the covers, so you might think to pick them up. A majority of the time this type of problem is either with the memory or the hard drive. Start with the codes list, and gofrom there. If you need any help, just ask.
