Re: Dell Latitude CPi won't boot

If the Numlock, scrolllock or capslock lights stay off, even POST won't start. (Power On Self Test)

Most likely the problem is hardware related.

Remove all detachable hardware such as DVD/CD bay, network card, harddisk etc to see if the
problem is related to any of these devices.

Water test is to remove all RAM - the POST should flash "no memory installed". If it doesn't do
that the motherboard most likely is damaged.
