Dell Inspiron 600m laptop that wont turn on or anything?

Hello,

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?!?

Hi Alishahadden,

Thanks for posting.

The blinking error code means Processor or system memory communication failure. This is the only code that still flashes. It is not actually a code, but a repeating power cycle.
