Dell :: How Would I Go About Upgrading The RAM On My Latitude D800?

Apr 29, 2009

Either through Dell or on my own? I have 512MB but for the past year or so I have ALWAYS been over it for whatever reason (I blame Windows Search 4.0) and it's had a pretty negative effect.

Dell :: Latitude D800; Do I Have A Bad Video Card?

Mar 31, 2009

I just found you, glad to be here. I searched for this but came up empty.

Latitude D800, XP Pro:
I have crazy lines and colors on both the laptop screen AND external monitor at the same time. It also is present on both in Safe Mode.

Because it's both I'm thinking the video card is toast. I read that if it was the LCD or the Inverter, the external monitor should display fine.

Dell :: Broke The Left Ctrl Key On My Latitude D800

Feb 12, 2009

I think I've bent one of the metal connecting parts on the actual keyboard too, so I think I'll need to replace the whole thing and not just the key.

In either case this key is not getting back on. Do current Dell Latitudes use the same keyboard, or am I going to have a hell of a time finding a replacement?

I took the key off because the button wasn't working, and sure enough there was a big wad of dust/hair blocking it...problem is I think I was too forceful when I removed it.

Notebook is a 2003 model.

Dell :: Latitude D800 Won't Hold A Charge Normal?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D800 I bought in Summer 2003. I've never really used it away from a power outlet in almost six years of ownership, aside from one time a few weeks ago - when the battery died within 15-20 minutes of powerwing on.

Is it normal for a six year old notebook battery to not hold a charge, even if it's never really been used, and has just been plugged into power (or shut down) constantly throughout the bulk of that time?

Dell :: Latitude D800. 745 (1.8Mhz) Vs Fx5650 (128mb) Upgrade

Sep 4, 2009

Recently I just bought(buy) the Intel Pentium M 745(1.8Ghz) chipset & Nvidia GeForce Fx Go5650 (128mb).

Dell Latitude D800 :: Power Light Didn't Turn On At All

Oct 1, 2008

My Latitude D800 laptop recently had trouble to turn on.  When pressed the power button (no matter how hrad or hard long to press), nothing happened, totally dead, power light didn't turn on at all.  I tried with battery (two batteries) only, AC power only and both, same thing, but sometimes it could be turned on when I waited for a while or came back later and tried again.

Dell Latitude D800 :: Laptop Freezes When TI Ultramedia Firmware Loader Device Disappears

Sep 26, 2010

When I switch on my Latitude D800, which I've just fitted with a new hard drive (Samsung), a box telling me that new hardware has been found and  TI ultra media firmware loader device is being installed. All is well until the box disappears and then the system freezes up. I don't get much time to anything and am really struggling with it.

Dell Latitude D800 :: Will Not Power On / No BIOS Information Displayed / No Power On Self Test

Apr 16, 2013

I have a Dell Latitude D800 that will not power on. When the power button is pushed the green power indicator light comes on, the CDROM spins for a moment, but then nothing happens, there is no BIOS information displayed, no power on self test, no Dell logo. It just sits there with the green power light on.I have tried removing the power & battery then pressing the power button for 10 seconds (actually, I have tried as long as 60 seconds). I have tried to turn on with the power connected but not the battery. I have tried removing the connector cable for the power button and the connector cable for the display and then reseating them.

Dell :: Upgrading A Latitude XT HDD

Feb 2, 2010

I bought this the other day for my Latitude XT:

Wanted to replace the 4200rpm hard drive currently in there with something faster. I updated the BIOS to A09 (January 2010) to prevent any compatibility issues. I plugged it in and booted the computer, popped my Windows CD in, goes through the pre-load stuff. When it gets to the part about setting up (prior to where it asks about formatting and all that) I get a BSOD.

Sorry for the brief description but I'm trying to work on it while I type. Any suggestions? Do I have it plugged in incorrectly? What should I be looking for?

EDIT: I checked for the hard drive in the BIOS. There's not many options to see what HDD is detected. However, when my 80GB drive is connected it shows "80 GB drive". When I have the SSD plugged in nothing shows up in the BIOS for it. Does this mean the SSD is not compatible with my machine?

EDIT2: Forgot to mention their website claims it's compatible with my laptop:

EDIT3: I sent them a "polite" e-mail about my situation and will let you all know if I have any success.

Dell :: Thinking About Upgrading Processor (Latitude D630)

May 3, 2010

I recently upgraded the processor in my Inspiron 1545 to an Intel T9400. I think that processor totally rocks and performs as well as I need for everything that I do.

My Latitude D630 is not so fortunate. I forgot what the processor was that it has, but it has a 2MB cache and a 2ghz clock speed. It does not perform as well as my Inspiron does. If I were to buy another T9400 (since I already know I like it) could I pop it in my D630? Or is it not compatible with it?

Dell :: Upgrading A Latitude C840 For Video Editing

Oct 18, 2007

looking to use a computer for image/video editing. Due to 'budget constraints' hah, I am unable to afford a new laptop. I do, however have a Dell Latitude C840. Unfortunately, it has a couple of problems that I hope you, my reader, will be able to help me with. I am hoping for upgrade information. I will list each thing to make it easier to respond to. If you can, please make your suggestions detailed (for example, the exact name of something I can use to upgrade).

Things to upgrade:

1. The speed, as I said, it is very slow with both image and video editing. The computer has a Pentium 4m processor (2 ghz), and 512 mb of ram. Can either of these be upgraded?

2. I am constantly running out of space. I am currently outfitted with a 60 gb hard drive, but I have 33 gb of photos, and I am constantly having to delete photos after uploading them to the external. Is it possible to buy a bigger hard drive?

3. Now, I would be fine just working on my photos right off of my external hard drive, but the slow speed of the usb connection between my computer and the external makes this nearly impossible. I have Usb 1.1 (I think). Is it possible to upgrade my usb port to 2.0?

Dell :: Upgrading Latitude E6400 Wireless To Intel 5300agn

Apr 1, 2009

i want to upgrade my wireless adapter to either the intel 5100 or 5300 cards. i understand that the 5300 has three antenna connections, whereas the the 5100 has two antenna connections.

currently i have the dell 1397 i believe. i know that the card has to be half-height mini, there are a bunch available on ebay.

from this thread:
E4200 + intel WIFI 5300 - can someone have a look at theirs ?

it seems this guy was succesful in upgrading the card on his e4200, the third antenna connection was available on the board itself.

anyone have success upgrading their wifi adapter to the 5300? just would like to know that it's easily done before ordering it, otherwise i guess the intel 5100 will suffice.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Upgrading Keyboard - Standard To Backlit

Mar 2, 2013

I was recently given a Latitude E6530 and I wish to upgrade the standard keyboard to a backlit one after coming from a MacBook Air. I was wondering, does E6530 (or it's similar models) requires an additional cable to power the backlight or does it just feed off the single cable? I've scoured YouTube and Google to try find out if an extra cable is required for this model however wasn't able to.

Dell :: D800 Will Not Power On

May 6, 2009

I have a D800 I haven't used in about 10 monthes. I took it out of the bag and charged the battery.

When I turn it on, it boots approximately one third of the way through the loading bar for the BIOS, and then it powers off.

I've tried it with both the power cable and battery, just power cable, and just battery; and it behaves the same way. Last time I used it, it was working fine.

Dell :: Successfully Installed New Keyboard On D800 But The Back Part Won't Go..

Jul 31, 2009

I finally replaced the keyboard on my Latitude D800 - the spacebar stopped functioning. The new keyboard works fine, but I think I screwed up putting stuff back together.

The back plastic part that needed to come off (the thing with the power buttons, mute, and lights, etc.)

has a small bump in front of the four indicator lights around where the right screw is for the keyboard. I can't press it down more, thoug

Dell :: Latitude D630 Vs Latitude E6400

Jun 19, 2009

The price of 2nd user Latitude D630's seems to be holding up quite well in the UK. Does this indicate that it is still a popular machine and favoured over the E6400?

I briefly checked out an E6400 the other day and for a choice between machines of approximately similar spec I would opt for the D630 rather than the newer E6400.

I would be interested in opinions from users who have experience with both models.

Dell :: Latitude On ECM As Compared To Latitude On FLASH

May 27, 2010

We are looking at getting some Latitude E4310 systems. Since fast boot up to access the web is important, we see that the Latitude On FLASH option is required.

The downside is that Dell will not install this along with the WiMax card option. They have a combo WiFi and WiMax card, but it can not be installed with the FLASH option.

They also list Latitude On ECM as an option instead of On FLASH. The ECM runs $149 more. With ECM, the system can then have the WiMax card which would be nice.

The people at Dell have not been able to provide a good explanation on what the ECM option does. There is a write up on the FLASH option, but not a good one on ECM. Does anyone know what the ECM does differently than the FLASH?

Key points of the FLASH option are (we need these functions):
Boot Fast, 8-10 seconds
Wi-Fi and LAN 10/100/1000
Web access via browser Firefox Browser
Supports Java and Adobe Flash
Read Microsoft Office
Edit Microsoft Office 2000

Dell :: Latitude D630/ Latitude E6500

Jun 21, 2009

I've got a choice at the moment between two latitudes:

1) Dell Latitude D630: 2.2ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 120gb HDD, dvd/cdrw drive, vista, nvidia Quaddro GFX

2) Dell Latitude E6500: 2.26ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 80gb HDD, DVDRW, Vista,

Which do you reckon i ought to go for between the two?

The laptop will be used primarily between home and university, so will be taken between the two places in my shoulder messenger bag, so will probably take a few bumps

Dell :: Upgrading CPU In My M90

Apr 28, 2009

I ordered my M90 on Dell Outlet a while ago. Top of the line everything except the CPU. It's a T2300, I believe (Core Duo, 1.6 Ghz). In preparation for Windows 7, I want upgrade the CPU for speed and for 64 bit.

I'm looking at a T7200 (2.0 Ghz, 667 fsb) for under $100 new, but pulled. First off, just to double check, this will work in my laptop, right?

Second, how involved is replacing the CPU? I've built desktops before no problem, and I've repaired my wife's screen on her HP, but never on my M90. I assume it won't be too bad as long as I follow the manual and keep track of parts.

Dell :: What's The Best OLD 17 To Buy For Upgrading?

Jan 26, 2009

I've been putting together cheap, old Gateway Solo 9550 notebooks for a few years now. They use the Coppermine 1066, which is just good enough for Win2KPro, and really light work.

I got a great deal on my Inspiron 9200 from Dell only to find it discontinued just weeks later. My fault, but then again, I got the best I could afford at the time, which was the most slimmed down version.

Here & there, I upgraded everything; CPU, RAM, hdd, DVD-RW, added Bluetooth, better battery, etc.

But I've reached the limit. I can't even overclock it .....

Dell :: Upgrading From T5670

Jan 28, 2010

I'm apologizing in advance if I am missing something or didnt perform a good enough search. I am usually very good with finding information but I think I have second-guessed myself to death on this now!

I am upgrading my t5670 in my vostro 1510. it has the GM965 chipset and I am talking to an ebay seller right now about buying a T9300 SLAZB chip. Now I have looked and found that it is "FCBGA6" vs. a "socket P" and this concerns me...will this 479 socket chip work just fine in my laptop?

Is there a difference (positive/negative) if I choose this chip over say, a SLAYY one?
