Hello,
My Dell Inspiron 6000 won't boot, no video, HD spins, fan runs, plugged into AC power supply and battery is fully charged. Unit is 5 1/2 years old, so I suspect the CMOS backup battey may be TU. Need procedure to replace it.

Hi kg61

The Dell web site has good documentation for dismantling most of it's PC's & laptops and how to find and replace components.

It is unlikely that a flat or dead cmos battery would prevent bootup

On some older PC's the cmos battery is a re-chargable miniture nicad battery rather than a lithium button cell

Do you have a spare screen to plugin to check if the laptop screen has failed ?
or has diverted all output to the VGA port ?

regards
Mike Barnes

I thought of that too, will try the video on the outtput port, but by watching the HD activity LED, unit does not appear to be booting at all.
