By julian.oldham ·
HI Can any one give me advice please,
I have a dell d800, it started to not boot up from cold,but if a little pressure is put on the power button when strating up it boots up fine.
then last night it was on stand by running on a universal power pack as i'd left mine at home .It was set to the right voltage 19.v
laptop runs on 19.5v.
so its been running on the above trans former in stand by ,I goto it to start work and blank screen with the battery/mains ligths flashing,cant get it out of what i think is stand by mode ,so turn it it wont run at power. even tried it on my dell power pack still no power or even battery charge light.HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

You can find the Service Manual for the D800 here

As a starting point I would imagine that the main Off/On Switch needs replacing.

But if the system was left plugged in when a Power Spike hit the list of possible damage is much greater.

"Off/On Switch" ...?

Is that an Antipodean 'On/Off Switch'?

Maybe it's written the other way round 'coz it's sitting upside/down!!!
