The Dell Latitude E5440 is a businesses-focused 14" laptop computer released in 2014 featuring Intel Haswell Processors.

Known Issues

When power button is pressed when device is plugged into the charger, the power light comes on for 5-10 seconds, and then the machine shuts off with no other signs of life.

Causes

  • Using an underrated power adapter when the main battery is dead.
  • Attempting to power on the device when the main battery is dead without a charger connected properly.
  • Attempting to power on the machine with bad/missing memory.
  • Due to a possible design flaw [1] with this laptop, a CMOS battery with a low voltage can cause this issue. The CMOS battery does not have to be completely dead for this issue to occur.
  • General motherboard failure.

Solutions

  • Charge the device with a 65W genuine Dell charger (90W if your model has a dedicated graphics card).
  • Re-seat/Replace the memory.
  • Remove the main and CMOS batteries and wait several hours. Then connect only the charger and power on the device.
  • Replace the CMOS battery.

Disassembly Notes

  • Make sure the main battery pack is removed from the device before disassembly to prevent damage to the device.
  • Follow all EDS protection procedures as necessary to prevent damage to the device. These procedures include but are not limited to avoiding walking on carpet and regularly touching a metallic surface that is known to have a good connection to ground, or alternatively wearing an ESD strap which has a good connection to ground.
  • When all batteries are disconnected for 30 seconds or more, all BIOS/Firmware settings are erased. Depending on your configuration, this could cause the OS to no longer boot. It is recommended to make note of any important settings if possible before removing all batteries.
