I have a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop that wont turn on or anything! When you try to power it up there is a green light with what looks like a padlock and a letter A inside it that will blink 9 times and then the light turns off. But meanwhile the fan nor the screen will turn on. Any ideas?!?
1. I removed DIMM i.e memory module, ( back side , one screw, oen it you will find dimm module of memory ) inserted. Started notebook ,No t solved.
2. I removed aga DIMM memory module now started Notebook without memory. Again switchd off . inserted memory module / dimm , restrted pc, working ok now.
This resetting memory module for bad data. OK now.
I had the same. I opened the compartment where the memory modues are located (power the PC off of course)
Remove the RAM modules (1 by one if there are two) and then the PC worked again. It was the memory module that was faulty.
After power up the pc agan the BIOS asked me whether the amount of system memory had changed. Reply YEs, and continue with F1. Problem solved.
Is the laptop plugged in and the battery fully charged?
Does anything appear on the screen when you hit the power button, even for just a second?
Do you hear any fan/disk/disc drive noises after you hit the power button, or is it completely silent?
