    My computer started having a problem a couple of months ago where when
    I would turn on the computer. The monitor would not power up, the
    Dell screen would not come up. The power LED would light up and I
    believe the hard disk light also would light up and sometimes the
    lights on over by the volume buttons would blink.

    When I removed the wifi card I had no problem. Over the last couple of
    weeks I have been using a USB wifi and have not had any problems. I
    have tried 3 different wifi cards and the same thing happens. I
    thought I resolve but when the machine would power up with the WiFi
    the computer would lock up while in Windows after several minutes.
    After I removed the wifi no problems whatsoever. The wifi cards work
    in other D600s.

    I have 4 D600s. Mine which has the problem. I bought one off of Ebay
    and the same exact thing happens. I have 2 other D600s that have no
    prolbem whatsoever.
