I have a Dell Latitude D600, 1GB RAM, intel 1.6GHz processor, Windows XP Pro SP3

Well, I dropped a coke bottle on the keyboard (it was closed, no liquid damage) and then the screen went black but the computer was still on. So i shut it down and the computer power would come on for a second but the computer would not boot up and would just then shut off.

After a few tries I would get it to come on and got the blue screen with errors. the first time I forgot to write them down but the second time I got some different errors and I did write them down:

0x0000000A (0xBABBDFC4, 0x000000FF, 0x00000000, 0x804E10AE)

and another time

0x0000007F (0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Physical memory dump

During one of the few times I got it to boot up I did the diag that is built in and everything passed.
I have no new hardware.
I have SP3
I don't think I have any viruses or spyware because I am extremely proactive about keeping things off and am familiar with the process of removals and I don't do downloads.

NOW I have been searching online and in forums on how to troubleshoot BSOD and what diags i should be doing. But now the computer will not boot at all. Once the power button is pushed some lights come on (so there is actual dc power working), they blink, and then the computer will not come on. No boot action at all.

So how can I troubleshoot the problem if it won't come on? What should I do now so I can fix it?

I hope I have provided enough information.

Thanks!!!!

It sounds like the Coke Bottle may have damaged the Key Board Area.

I took out the keyboard and it seemed ok. I didn't see any damage. How do I know if the keyboard area is damaged if I cannot see the physical damage?

It is a Laptop?

If it was a Desktop I would suggest trying another Keyboard?

Just a sticky Key on a normal Desktop Computer can cause what you complain about?

You know that Coke bottle hit hard?

Abacus 7, that is a laptop, Google is your friend. :thumbsup:

Mzleen, You may have brocken the PC board that the keyboard is mounted on when the drink container landed on it. You can use the instructions at this site to disassemble the keyboard so that you can inspect it, or replace it if necessary.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Well, I did take it apart and inspected the keyboard and it didn't seem to be cracked or physically look damaged. I don't have another one to swap it out with to see. I wish there was a way to test it before I run out and get another one. hmmmm

Multiple posts on the same subject will not get you help any quicker.
I have closed the others.

Please stay/continue in this thread.
