Hi,
Greetings!
I would like to ask for your assistance because I'm already out of ideas how to resolve this issue. Right after I powered up the laptop, it will get past the DELL logo screen, then it will be completely just black screen. I wouldn't even hear any activity from the CPU fan, HDD and pressing the Caps Lock doesn't lit up the LED. The LED indicators on the side are only displaying the power indicator, but none for HDD, Battery and Wireless.
Here are the steps that I have done so far:
1) Removed the HDD and Battery, then press & hold the power button for at least 45-60 seconds to disperse the internal voltage. Then attach the Battery, but not the HDD.
2) Press and hold Fn and then the Power button, hoping to boot me up to the ePSA Diagnostic Utility
3) Press F2 or F12 while booting up
4) Re-seat the memory and also clean with a dry tissue
These are the procedures that I have done but nothing has changed. It still displays blank screen right after the DELL logo.
I do hope that you could assist me on this. Thank you so much!

Hello,

My laptop: Dell Latitude E5550 - 15.6" FHD - Core i5 5300U - Intel HD Graphics 5500 - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit - 8 GB RAM - 500 GB HDD.

Does anybody know what drivers/software is responsible for displaying On Screen Volume and Screen Brightness Indicator (while pressing Fn+F2,F3,...) ?

What I've found so far that the Dell QuickSet may does the work (link to this solution: No Level Indicator When Using Keyboard Audio Volume Controls), but I couldn't find a compatible version of this soft with Dell Latitude E5550.

Hi There
is there anyone out there that can solve me Dell D 600 screen problem as it doesnt seem to power up, all the base powers up ok but not the screen, any ideas or is it an expensive repair or exchange.
 

A:Dell D 600 Latitude Screen Problem

I don't know about laptops, but my desktop LCD monitor acted the same way - only black screen with power light blinking, but the computer was booting up properly. The monitor is still under warranty, (3-year warranty) so I sent it in for repair (at a shipment cost to me of $30). From what I could learn on the web, LCD monitors often suffer from capacitors going bad among other things. I don't know how much repairs cost, however several sites indicate it is fairly expensive just to work on them - from $115 up. See link for one price list of repair.

http://www.moniserv.com/doc/pricelist.html

I hope yours is still under warranty. Good luck!

I have a couple of problems with my new college laptop, a latitude D810. Every time I startup my computer, windows seems to be shuffling through the resolutions, starting in 800x600 to the standard 1680x1050. This wasn't a problem until recently, when after I updated the drivers (from the dell website), windows keeps getting stuck in 800x600 coming out of hibernation.

(On a side note, I also think this is making my welcome screen and everything on it ENORMOUS. When I was setting up Windows the first time I fired up the laptop, I couldn't even see the next and finish buttons!)

Another problem is that the display properties requires that I reboot after every resolution resize I try to apply the settings. Now, I clearly remember I didn't have to do that before.

Thanks

PS-Keep the explanation simple for now, I have no idea how advanced this might get.

i recently purchased a second hand dell cheep
and now the display has kinda blue lines through it
i have a dell inspiron 4100
they are both model# PP01L
is the actual display the same
will the mobo interchange from one to the other?
it seems a waste to forfeit both computers when one is a two ghz system
i would rather put the mobo in the inspiron, it looks cooler but, form follows function
i know that there are enough dells out there saturating the market somebody has replaced or noticed its similarities such as the connector from the display or mounting socket
or it's if it is the display, maybe i can swap them out.
im thinking its the actual piece of tape or ribbon connector
but the inspiron has a smaller board that connects to the mobo
i dont know as of yet whether they will interchange.
on the outside there's not much difference
what do you think
as always thanks

Hi,

My Dell Latitude LS screen has a vertical single pixel width line where the pixels only show the color neon green or some flashy green shad only. Is there a way to fix those pixel. In the strict sense these are not dead pixels because they do light up but they do not show anything. I have found websites suggesting, I squeeze, or massage that particular area of the screen while the LCD is on and off and then on. But that does squat for my laptop. Does anyone have any suggestions or may have come across a similar problem. Thanks in advance.

You have to install your video card drivers. go to www.ati.com and select the "Drivers and Downloads". You should be able to find a copy there. If not, go to www.driverguide.com and sign up. It is free and offers thousands of drivers. You will find it there if nothing else.

I am trying to fix a friends Dell D600 Latitude Laptop.

They are not very good with computers, and they thought it had a virus so gave it to me to look at.

But when i try to turn it on all the lights light up and it makes a sound like it is going to boot, but doesnt actually boot up. The screen is completely blank. I have taken out the memory and put it back in, tried pressing every F button and using Fn which some people suggested online.

But nothing works, i have also tried putting in the XP disc and also connecting it to another monitor and pressing Fn +F8 but still nothing.

I don't want to give up on it. :(

I am not a computer expert but it makes a noise when i press it on, so to me it still has life

Is there anything i can do??

I have a Dell Latitude D820 that I dropped while in its carrying bag so it wasn't a real hard landing.

Now the backlight won't come on. I swapped an entire screen assembly from an identical D820 and it still won't turn the backlight on. I swapped the screens again and the borrowed D820 still works fine and mine won't work. (I didn't bother to test my screen in the borrowed D820.)

I can run an external CRT with mine and I can see the LCD display if I shine a light on it so I know the display is working and not cracked. The laptop won't drive the CRT unless it thinks the lid is down so, to use the keyboard, I removed the sense magnet from the lid and taped it to the place where it would be with the lid closed.

I've noticed in the past that this D820 often stayed fully on, including the display it seemed, when I closed the lid and walked away for hours.

(Note: When I tested the borrowed screen I had the sense magnet removed.)

When the magnet is taped in place (simulating lid down) both the backlight and the display are off. I can't see the display even when a light is shined on it, but when the magnet is removed (simulating lid up) I get the display with no backlight.

It seems like the display knows whether the lid is up or down, but the backlight seems to act like the lid is always down. Is this possible? What should I look for?

I have a 3 year old dell latitude d830 and everytime i turn it on the screen goes pink with a variety of thin colourful vertical lines through it. This is as far as it goes, i cannot get it to go to the regular start up screen or any other.
I know the battery is currently fried so i have to keep it plugged in for it to work, could that have anything to do with this? or is it another matter?
Thank you.
 

A:Dell Latitude D830 does not go further than the start up screen

Maybe u should try remove the whole battery and then plug the charger directly, if your pc turns on with the same issue, then it's not the battery.

Try to plug your laptop to an external monitor. if the display is normal on the external display then your screen is bad.
Check to see that there is no other sign of abnormality, such as after-POST beep or the activity LEDs.
I hope it should be this.

The screen panel hinges on a Dell Latitude C610 I have are EXTREMELY loose. Everything else about the system is perfectly fine, it was my main computer for about ten months. But if the screen is not propped against a wall or something, it will fall open or fall shut every single time. Balance the screen in a perfectly vertical position, sure, but if someone walks by or closes a door it will fall open or fall shut. Really annoying. People have actually told me to use duct tape or super glue. Is there an easy, step-by-step guide to (ideally) fixing, or (if not) replacing these hinges? Thanks in advance

I'm trying to help a friend with his Dell Latitude D410 Win xp pro. I'm a rank amateur, but know enough to get myself in trouble...
     This notebook has no cd/dvd drive or floppy drive, just usb. When you power it on, goes past the DELL splash screen then comes up to 'windows did not start successfully", blah, blah blah, and gives me the choices of safe mode, with networking, with command prompt, last known good config. or start windows normally = tried them all and it keeps coming up to the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH "0x0000007B (0xF8895528,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000).. I even swapped in a known good hard drive and came up to the same BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.  I removed the D410 original hard drive and tried hooking it into my main Dell Studio XPS wind 7 computer to try to access the file system = it did not "see" the drive. I then hook it into a good running Dell D610 Win xp laptop, it took a good number of minutes for the drive to show up, but I couldn't access it. I did double-check the "known good" hard drive by cabling it to other computers and was able to access with no problem and then returned it to it's rightful place in it's properly running laptop. I did a search for "Create bootable USB drives the easy way" and downloaded  "RUFUS"  http://rufus.akeo.ie/ , but when I plugged in the RUFUS loaded usb, hit F12 to boot menu, chose USB, "invalid or damaged bootable partition" came up.   Any ideas?

Hey all,

A few months ago I got an old 400mhz dell latitude (model PMP), just to be able to program pi micro-controllers at school. So I didn't need much power or a cd or floppy drive or any thing special so I just got this little striped down $100 one on ebay.

I got all the software and drivers I needed to program, and It was working great, but since it was old the battery would only hold a charge for an hour or so and shut it self off.

One day me and my friend decided to just turn it back on (impatiently) after it shut off, and it came on, and stayed on for an hour or so. I thought this was great and I could just do this all the time, but of course after a hour or so it just died from loss of power.

Any way when I plugged it back in and turned it on it booted up to a completely grey screen, and thats what it has done ever since. Now when you turn it on it makes one short little click and brings up a grey screen, (no bios screen or password prompter once so ever) and if you wait about a minute or so it beeps 2 times and restarts and does the same thing over. I tried cntl+alt+del, cntl+alt+enter, hitting the button that brings up the bios and even taking it apart and unplugging the cmos battery and nothing helps.

I realize that this thing is just a old piece of junk, and I did something really stupid but I would still like to get it working again (mostly out of curiosity.) Like resetting the bios or something.

Any help is Much! Appreci... Read more

Hello!
I have just purchased a Dell Latitude E5450 14" and I am having some problems with its screen.
It is a matte IPS full hd screen and after using it just for a few hours i had enormous eye strain- happened for the first time in my life (my eye sight is just fine btw). I did calibration and tests and adjustments and updated dell drivers... Still I have enormous eye strain. (back home i also own viewsonic matte ips 23" monitor and never had problem with looking at it for hours)
The only thing I can definitely say is that I think the screen has sharpness issues based on:
www.lagom.nl/.../sharpness.php
it fails this test miserably and according to this test, the sharpness is too low. Could this be causing my eye strain and if yes, is there any way to improve that??
I am surprised that my 8 year old Dell Inspiron 13" almost passed this test perfectly.
Also I find the colors on Latitude screen too saturated.. And I have the feeling there is too much magenta or even blue...
Did anyone have same or similar problems? I really like my new Latitude but I don't see the point in keeping it if I cannot use it more then 2 hours per day...
Any help is really appreciated!

So I disabled my Intel Graphics drivers - e voila, no more eye strain!
Still though, that sharpness test is failing....
Any thoughts?

Today, I was (trying) to upload files on a Micro SD card. I went to "My Computer" and clicked the storage device. It stopped responding, so I ended the program. All the icons disappeared, so I shut down the laptop. When I booted it back up, it did the little windows thing with the logo and blue bars. It then asked me "Start Windows Normally, Last Known Settings, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode." I selected "Safe Mode" and it flashed a Blue Screen error and went back to the Windows logo with blue bars scrolling. I then tried selecting all the other options. It still would flash the blue screen error. I need help!

It isn't clear what the problem is - are you in fact reloading the OS?  Or does the blue screen come up spontaneously?  If so - when?  At boot?  At random?
The leading suspects for blue screen stops are failing hard drives or bad RAM - run an extended system diagnostic (F12 at powerup).  If you require further information, post any error codes that arise.

I have my power scheme set to the defaults when on battery power, but all power and screen settings to "Never" when plugged in and charging. The 9 cell oversized battery is in good working order. I have an administrator and user password set and I also have it set to flash the password screen upon waking from sleep mode. Yet, if I leave the running machine unattended for a time, I return to find it at the blue password login screen. It's not sleeping because all the processes are working in the background, even downloads are not interrupted. If I login, it goes right back to what it is doing in the background, so there's no delay or loss of data. It's just weird and disconcerting. Anybody know what I set to cause this? I've had many Dell's and Windows OS, but have never seen this behavior before.

Hi everyone, I recently closed the lid on my laptop a little too hard (although nowhere near hard enough to damage the screen, at least I thought) - however it now has a crack in the corner. That will teach me for being heavy handed.

I'd like to buy a replacement screen and fit it myself, but I am struggling to find the correct model and part. I could take it to a local shop to repair but it will cost me twice the price and I have been inside electronic equipment before so I think I should be OK.

Can anyone help me determine what screen I need to buy, or where I can find out - and also if there are any online video guides to help with this sort of job?

My dell latitude is showing strange colors across the screen and there are lines going up and down sometimes. When I restart the computer the loading windows screen shows up as normal but when it gets any further it is all messed up. Any suggestions how to fix this? I checked the control panel and everything seems to be fine there.

The split screen starts when the laptop is powered on. I have uninstalled the video card, didn't work. I have clean installed Windows10 and formatted the disc, didn't work. I have went all through the settings and control panel. I have looked at all options in the BIOS setup. Is there a way to to factory reset, not restore, from an iso file to before any windows os was ever installed? I am extremely frustrated with trying to find a solution on my own so I am asking the community for help. If you know of a solution please let me know. Thank you.

hello i have both these laptops well i have bought a e6420 for my girlfriend as the other one she has is crap.well i have read that these e6420 get warm and well i found out they come with one pipe heatsink well i heard u can upgrade the heatsink to a 2 pipe one.(DUAL HEATPIPE heatsink DELL P/N - TYP01) i was wondering what else do i need to do this as when i get this laptop its second hand i7 pro in it 2.8ghz im going to clean it out and put new paste on it put i hear people are on about this copper shim to put on it.can this be done and well can i upgrade my dell latitude e6430 i5 pro 2.6ghz heatsink with the double heatsink as i know that one only comes with one pipe.love you guys info if you guys can help me would be class thanks

i got this info here GPU Temperature 103C on Latitude E6420 - General Hardware - Laptop - Dell Community

A:Dell latitude e6430 and dell latitude e6420

Joseph mate best leave as is after all it was made to function as it came. Now for the compound and copper shim personally I would not bother with the copper shim I can see no good reason for it the dual pipe again if it was made to work with one pipe then leave alone.

It is better if you renew the compound using a decent cleaner and compound and I can recommend these for that job

Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean for thorough cleaning and preparation and Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 for the compound.

Now it depends on who you listen to but I always use these products and after the old compound is thoroughly cleaned off and the surfaces prepped I spread the compound very thinly and across the both entire surface of the CPU and the heatsink with my finger inside a vinyl or latex glove and then place a rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU and replace the heatsink. If you touch the surfaces after clean and prep then redo it.

While you are in there do make sure the fan and the radiator are really spotless and I sometimes relube the fan bearings to make sure the fan is running at full tilt when needed.

Someone I work with has a Dell Latitude D620 and the screen blanks while booting in normal mode when in the dock. Laptop boots normally when not docked.

When I try and boot (in normal mode) when docked, I see the black "XP Pro" screen loading (but don't see where I can press F2 to get into setup or F12 for boot menu) and then the screen goes blank.

I thought it may be a screen resolution issue and I backed off the resolution from 1440X900 to 1280X800 but still no luck. Refresh rate is 60hz I do get video when I boot into Safe mode, but not normal mode. Any ideas here?

The other day, I started having a problem with the screen on my latitude d610 laptop. After awhile of being on it would turn off. Not the laptop itself, just the screen (I know this because I can hear the audio coming from the task I was working on). This problem got progressively worse and now when I turn the screen on it only flickers on for about a fraction of a second before going back off.

I'm not entirely concerned with getting that fixed (although, if you know what the problem is, please do let me know). My main concern is the fact that I cannot get an external monitor to work. I have plugged in the VGA cable into my laptop and the external monitor and then I hold down the "fn" key and press the "CRT-LCD" button, but nothing happens. There is no problem with the VGA cable I'm using or the monitor I'm trying to use, because I tried troubleshooting with another laptop and was able to get it to work on that second laptop. The only thing I can think of is that maybe my d610 is not recognizing the VGA cable/external monitor, because after plugging the VGA into my d610 I do not get the "device is connected" chime that I would normally hear after connecting a device.

If you have any advice for me on what my problems could be or anything you think I might be able to do to try to correct the problem, I'd certainly appreciate it.

Thanks.

Hi All,
I'm a newbie to this forum and I have what appears to be a serious issue

When booting my Dell Latitude E6410, there is a really loud noise coming from the left side of the computer (what i think is the fan?). It's also very hot and the login screen freezes and I am unable to login)

I am however able to login in safe mode no problem and there is no noise or excess heat.

I thought that maybe the problem was related to my use of the Anti-Virus program Avast, so I uninstalled and used their uninstall utility.

I also ran MalwareBytes and Super Anti Spyware per other suggestions I had seen in forums.

I'm copying my list of installed programs below---I allready cleaned out all of the temp files and deleted anything that seemed iffy or not in use.

Please any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,
I have a Dell Latitude E6400 on which the LED Screen Display / Video shows steady vertical lines in the right half of the display (partial display on the left side is good, see picture). I have already tested the external VGA port - it displays correctly on an external LCD monitor. The vertical lines are constant and of the same brightness, regardless of the position of the laptop lid. Could this be a problem with the inverter or the LCD display ribbon cable? Or something else? Thanks in advance for any feedback.

P. S. Please note that the golden glow on the top left side of the screen is just a reflection of an ambient light.

A:Dell Latitude E6400 LCD / LED Video Screen Has Partial Display Vertical Lines

It's not the inverter (assuming the display has one);  that simply controls the backlight.  It may or may not be the cable - likely it is not.  It looks like a damaged display panel.

Hi everyone; I have a dell D630 that I started having problems with about 2 months ago, in the middle of normal functions vertical rows of small green bricks would appear, followed shortly by a crash. Then, I can power it back up but the screen will remain black. It lights up, the pixels are obviously functioning but it is black. Every once in a while it will work again but only for about 1-5 min and the green lines will come back.

This happened shortly after I had it outside during a construction project where it may have gotten some dust in it or something... I am guessing this is relevant?

I have tried blowing everything with a little keyboard cleaner air can, but that is all.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Ben

I installed Windows 7 Beta on a Dell Latitude D620. Laptop has built in UPEK

driver.  I first installed the driver from Dell.com for Vista 32bit. 
Device manager shows driver installed and hardware running, but the
fingerprint reader does not show up in the Biometric Devices screen
from within the Control Panel.  Next, I went to UPEK's website, and
downloaded a driver dated 12/2008.  Same scenario, device manager is
good, but no device showing up in Biometric Devices in Control Panel.  I
removed driver and rebooted machine before and after each attempt. 
Anyone have any ideas?  Or are the existing drivers just simply not

for the basics and schoolwork
and which is newer 

A:which is better dell latitude e5440 or dell latiude e6430

The E6430 has a metal case and is more robust, but uses an older CPU and chipset.
The E5440 is a plainer chassis with a newer generation CPU and chipset.
The E6440 is the concurrent update to the E5440.
There are too many possible configurations to definitively say which is better -- it depends on the CPU, GPU, etc. in the specific model (or that you choose when you order one, but since the E6430 isn't a current model,  you may be looking at used systems).

Hi everyone,

This is a long shot ... I've got a machine from about 1998 here and am hoping someone might be able to remember something about them. It's small, black and very chunky - the Dell Latitude XPi CD ( 166mhz! ). I needed something with windows 98 so I 'upgraded' the drive from 2 gb. to a Samsung HM100JC ( 100 gb. ) Basically I've got some games that don't work with compatibility in XP at all ...

All fine and dandy with swapping the hard drive, but the underneath of the machine gets universally hot as hell! I don't seem to be able to detect a fan, much less any cooling vents. Would I be right in thinking that it was fine with the 2 gb, and it needed neither a fan or cooling vents, but that my latter day 100 gb. drive runs that much hotter? I actually love this laptop, but want to 'waste' neither it or the drive, so any suggestions much welcome!

I've tried the Dell site but the documentation I found wasn't hugely informative about the specific problems I'm having ( though to their credit, all of the setup files were there for download ).

Many thanks,

Tony
 

A:Old Dell Latitude XPi - very hot

If your new hard drive is higher RPM than the old drive, then that would explain the heat. Your old drive was probably 4500 RPM, and the new one 5400 or 7200. If that is true, there's not much you can do about it short of buying a new drive.

I stumbled across your site and noticed a thread where you helped out a non-techie like me and I thought I would register and give it a shot. My daughter asked me to fix her Dell Latitude cpi which she uses for her college work. That was the easy bit it was a dodgy on/off button. Then she asked me to get it connected to the internet through her cable modem. I thought that would be easy too but I have spent hours on the internet trying to find what sort of adapter is needed because there is no direct socket connection to fit the modem. I would be eternally grateful for any help you can offer and it would make me look good in my daughter's eyes.

Hi, I have just brought a Dell Latitude CPx back from the dead and it is working wonderfully apart from the fact that the Function (FN) keys don't 'function'.
Any ideas please?
 

A:Dell Latitude CPx

Humm... old.

When you say you brought it back from the dead, how so? Did you have a Dell recovery disk, or did you install an OS from a box into it? Was the keyboard okay before hand, or was it part of the reason for it being DOA originally?

The CPx series were one of those 'semi'-Dell machines, since the same notebook could be purchased in a number of liveries, including HP and Gateway (your machine looks exactly like my Solo 1400). If you loaded an operating system into it that wasn't from a recovery disk, then you probably need to download the drivers from the Dell website into it. Otherwise, the keyboad may be out of sorts, and may need replacing.

If you can find the service tag number (on Dell laptops, they tend to be on a thin white label and are only 6 to 8 digits long), you can punch it in here (http://support.dell.com/support/top...y_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~tab=2) to find out what was on this beastie originally, and what can be downloaded to it.

I have a dell latitude cpx laptop, and I broke the two keys letter "Y" and "6" also the metal bracket that connects the key plate to the actual laptop. Anyone know where I can get this. the problem started by the keys not working when pushed down. Any ideas on why that happened as well.

Thats a normal problem for those keyboards. You could probably have gotten those keys working again by reseating the cable from the motherboard to the keyboard. Now it sounds like you need a new keyboard. You can probably get one from Dell or possibly find a used one from ebay. Replacements can also be found online like this.

Hello, A friend just gave a Dell Latitude cpi because he shut it down with the reboot to start up in dos mode. He didnt know how to change it back so he gave it to me. When its turned on, the screen says Invalid system disk replace the disk and pres sany key. I have xp to put on but no key code for this computer. It has windows 98 on it. I dont have that disk, is that the only way? I would just like to get it back to the previous setting that worked, not in set up either as far as I see, so I can use it for games or what ever.

Thanks
Chris

I'm pretty sure that if you don't have the original disk, you are pretty much going to have to start from scratch.

Hi,

Been a while since I've posted here, but I'd like some help please. Dell Latitude CPt (Laptop) running W98. Insert a CD in the drive, and it flags up

D:\ is not accessible

The device is not ready

I've checked in Device Manager, and everything seems correct for the CD drive.. drivers, device etc. all working properly with no conflicts. Drive is a TEAC CD-224E

Under Other Devices however, two entries are flagged with the yellow !. These are..

PCI Communications Device

and

PCI Multimedia Audio Device

Neither have drivers installed, and tell me in brackets Code 28.

I've tried to reinstall the drivers with the handy Reinstall Drivers button, but they aren't on the HD.

Two questions, apart from the obvious what do I do next..

1. Are the two related, I'm guessing they are.. and

2. If so, how do I go about getting the correct drivers for it. I've had a quick look on Google, but no luck.

For background info, this happened when I cleaned up this Laptop for a colleague at work, just to make a bit of space on the HD. I assume I've somehow (don't ask) inadvertantly deleted something I shouldn't have.

Cheers

Liam

I have a Dell Latitude D520 Laptop and am having problems with the display... I am running Windows XP SP3. When I switch the Laptop on all starts fine and all the Icons appear as they should. However, after approx 5 mins the Display goes off and no matter what I do I can't get it to come back on. After Restart the same thing happens. I don't think this is a Software Issue as it all starts as it should and the problem persists after I've tried re installing Windows onto it. When the screen Dims it is still possible to see everything very dimly in the background.

Any help would be greatly appreciated????

A:Dell Latitude D520 HELP!!!!

Is the power adapter attached when this happens? Laptops by default dim after 5 minutes of inactivity when the power adapter is not attached to save power but it should come back on by either pressing the power button once, or tapping the Enter key. Is the battery being recharged when the power adapter is attached? You can try this without the battery in, and just using the Power Adapter to test if the battery is the problem.
You can adjust the power settings by right clicking a blank space on the desktop/Properties/Screen Save/Power. You can change the time and what the power button does. (ex) pressing power button once to wake from sleep etc.

Ok I am  kind of new to all this so please have a heart and  refrain from making me look stupid cause i might make it easy  by  being a easy  target . I have a dell laptop latitude d820 and my goodness it was / is slow . I mean so  slow  mail might be more practical using lets say the pony express so i do mean slow.  Then if anyone could be kind and  can help me get it to have better performance i would really be grateful. That is not the main problem,  due to it being so slow,  i searched ,  read  and saw its a good idea to reformat the entire thing and that  i did. I followed direction per windows tutorials and made a back up disk to reboot from. I then formatted the thing clearing it back to its virginity state and proceeded to boot from back up disk. I was informed i needed to authenticate my version of windows 7 so i used the key located on the bottom of my dell. It acted like it was going through and by that i mean it was taking forever and then eventually came back saying i could not use that key for my version of windows 7 pro. I dont have the money to just go buy a new one and it wont let me authenticate this version . Please someone,  anyone help me out here . To top it all off its even slower so it seems . Any education or enlightenment will be very welcomed and well received . Thanks and hope to hear all the things i need to bring this dell back to its working state.

A friend of mine gave me a Dell Latitude C640 to check out. It looks like a decent clean laptop and it sounds that it's going to boot up but after it gets to the Dell and Windows XP screens, it immediately goes to the "Windows did not start successfully" screen and gives me the option of starting windows normally, going to safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, or last known good configuration.

Unfortunately, no matter what I choose, it always comes back to that "Windows did not start successfully" screen. I thought maybe the OS was corrupted, so I tried repairing it or even just reinstalling the OS from CD but nothing works. I'm not sure if it's a hardware problem or an OS problem.

Any one have any idea on what the problem is?

Thanks,

A:Dell Latitude d400

Hi jkswimmer and welcome to Vista Forums

Sorry, but I don't recommend this. With a desktop system, then possibly. However, with laptops things are much more complicated. Power consumption and heat dissipation are the greatest concern and they are optimised for the current processor in the system. A replacement processor, if it is not identical, might have different power and thermal characteristics, in which case the system would fail to keep it within its normal working range. In addition to that, simply accessing the processor on a laptop is much more complicated than simply removing the side panel as you would on a desktop. You literally have to strip the laptop right down, being carefull not to lose the various small screws or damage the wiring and its connectors. And then, of course, you will need to repeat the procedure in reverse to reassemble it.
Personally, I would leave your laptop as it is, with one exception. To improve its performance, make sure that you have installed the maximum amount of memory that it supports (see manual for details).

Hello I am currently trying to hook up my dell latitude cpx to my tv to use it as my monitor. It has an S-Video out port, and my tv has RCA ports only, so i purchased a cable which is s-video to an rca connector for my video in. Well when I boot up my laptop, when i get to the welcome screen in xp, it starts to display on my tv, but then about 5 to 10 seconds after that it flickers and the picture goes away.Ive tried everything in the display settings and also enabled everything in my BOIS, with no luck, could anyone help me??

Thanks in advance!

Same. I have a DELL Latitude CPxH running Windows XP and I wanted to use composite video via the S-Video port. It would display on the TV for about 20 seconds at the Welcome screen then go blank.

My solution was to switch off hardware acceleration in the Display Properties / Advanced Settings button / Troubleshooting tab. Move the slider all the way to the left. Reboot as instructed.

PS. The F8 key has no effect. Only one monitor appears in the display properties.

A:Dell Latitude won't turn on

Remove the HardDrive again from your laptop (I think we are only talking about your Laptop)
Remove the Power Adaptor and Battery
Hold down the ON button for 30secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
Put the Power Adaptor back in (No HardDrive yet!)
Turn On
Does it now show a display?

If Yes. Turn it off, and put the HardDrive and Battery back in.
If No, Remove the Power Adaptor again
Disperse the internal Voltage again
Remove and reseat the Ram (sometimes blowing out any dust too)
With the Ram back in, Put the Power Adaptor back in
Turn on

Did it work?

A:Internal HD Dell Latitude 600

No problem, you can attach that laptop HD 2.5 IDE to your desktop HD 3.5 IDE, but you'll need to purchase or get your hands on 2.5 IDE to IDE connector. What I do is either use the Slave Secondary where the CDROM goes and connect the laptop HD 2.5 IDE there. The connector comes with a power connector to drive the HD to the desktop PC pwr. Here you can clone the HD to another 2.5 IDE HD for laptop (you'll need another 2.5 IDE to 3.5 IDE connector for that task. Backup files an etc.. with one 2.5 IDE HD.

Less than $1.00 at a computer fair more than $5 at a computer retail store or online.

Hi all I have a Dell Latitude E6320 here, it has a real dim screen.

I have tried using the hot keys to increase the brightness of the screene ( even though it looks like the back light has gone, I checked anyways)

I have replaced the screen... .still the same.

I have even replaced the cable from the mobo to the screen and the results are still the same.

I have also done a diagnostic on the graphics card etc, all seems well.

I am not sure on what else to think unless the screen bought was also dodgy.
The screen was replaced due to the original being cracked.

Im not sure what else to think, does anyone have any good ideas on what could be the issue here :S

A:Dell Latitude LS Laptop Help

You can go to Dell support, enter your notebook model or identification code and navigate to replace hardware for a guide on replaceing the memory. If you go to system specs on the same site, it will tell you what kind of memory it uses and how much it will hold . .

You can also use the Memory Configuration at www.crucial.com to get the same info. Dell's do not handle cheap memory well so stick with Crucial . . price is competitive and they gurantee it will work in the notebook.

Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to upgrade processors on todays notebooks . . dammit! You can upgrade memory and hard drive but nothing else.

I'm in the process of looking at new laptops and want to see if there is a consensus on what would be a better choice.

*Latitude or Inspiron?
PIII 1.0 GHz
*Display: XGA, SVGA, or UXGA (any real difference between the 3?)
10/20 gb ultra ata hd (guess they are 5400rpm, doesn't say)
256 mb RAM
Win2000
*USB or PS2 Mouse?
Xircom Realport if possible
Doesn't a second battery take up a cd/a: slot?

Laptop will be docked while in office and is used by Legal Director who will be on the road with it during the Legislative Session. Medium use.
We've gone with Dell Desktops and have been pretty happy with them. We've also done Latitute/Inspiron laptops:
Inspiron 7000 (C366)(P366) and Celeron don't mix, the PII works fine.
2 Latitudes C600 (P850) with Win98/Win2000 are very reliable.
Latitude C800 (P1.0) with Win2000 is so-so (BUT, I didn't put it together, a non-tech person did, but it's hers, so there).

Latitudes are about $2600, whereas the Inspirons are about $2000 (also with Office XP).

Thanks for your inputs.

Hi all,
ok I pulled a real boner and it has me going nuts. I bought a used Dell D630, the unit had/has a bios boot password. Well the price was good has an extended battery etc, clean machine etc. I thought what the hell I should be able to work around that! LOL wrong
anyways while trying different key strokes while booting I found a combo that did something. As the unit is booting I held the CTRL key down and mashed the 'D" key (not the delete key "D" as in Delta) a zilllion times, well the password screen came up with normal text except a now it showed a few garbage characters, ok it is doing something. I repeated the boot and mash three more times and finally came up with total googly gawk. Cool maybe I got somewhere, did a reboot with no mashing.....oop's NO video, unit lights up, drives come on back light comes on NO nothing no text no boot no post screen nothing!

Removed cmos battery, took out battery unplugged power held down the power button for minutes...walla nothing. It appears I bricked the unit? it wouldn't even boot up with a live cd. So now have I just flushed 150.00 down the toilet? from key combos? I even tried the external monitor that didn't work.....any ideas? Thanx all
