    Default [Help]Dell latitude d800

    A few years ago my uncle gave me this laptop. It worked fine for like an hour until the battery died and I realized the charger didn't work.

    It had been dead ever since then because I didn't really care about buying a replacement charger. A few days ago I bought the charger, plugged it in and now it won't boot.

    The caps lock icon flashes 10 times and it turns off. Similar posts on Google suggest the RAM isn't seated properly, I've re-seated it many times now and nothing has changed.

    Any ideas?

    One of your memory sticks could be bad, try using one and see what happens. You could also try taking out the ram completely and see if you get the same result.

    The motherboard could be bad, if you used the wrong charger and tried getting it to work, it might have been subjected to the wrong input polarity/voltage/amperage and fried the board.

    I tried taking one out at a time to test if the other had gone bad but no change. Also I made sure everything was the same as the original charger specs wise.

    It is possible the board is bad, but it could also be something more simple. I'd rather keep messing with it and maybe get it working than assume the board is dead.

    It wouldn't be worth replacing the board.
