Dell Latitude D610 :: Motherboard Replaced - Incorrect Service Tag
Nov 21, 2006
I have a Latitude D610 and I had to replace the motherboard and now it shows the incorrect Service Tag, I can not figure out how to put the correct "Service Tag" in to it. I have reviewed many posts here and still no luck. I have tried asset.com and it says tag not correct and Make Sure setup password's are disabled. I really hate to ask but I don't have no where else to turn, and yes the computer is out of warranty.
recently had my dell xps m1530 motherboard and graphics card replaced by dell,
Since then, whenever I turn it on I get a message saying " the charger is only a 65w and your battery requires a 90w charger ",
Just before my laptop died and I called dell to come and fix my laptop, I was getting the exact same inconsistent framerates in games like l4d, Where i would usually get around 60+ fps, I was now only getting extremely inconsistent 25+ max fps..
I have a dell vostro 3550. I Just got my mother board replaced a few days back... But now the system starts shows vostro logo.. Then starts again... Never reaching the os selection menu..( I have a dual boot so I need to select the os to boot in)....
I have a 1536 that I thought had a dead motherboard. I bought a 1537 motherboard, T9600 CPU & a CPU fan & heatsink. Finally all the parts showed up & I got it installed. Unfortunatly all this new hardware & still same problem. When you turn it on the media lights flash on & then off & the DVD drive makes some noise. The display doesn't turn on & no HDD activity. I know the 4G of DDR2 is good & the HDD is good as I tested them in another laptop. Any help would be helpful. I would think that I would get some HDD activity ( noise & HDD light ) if the display was dead.
We are having to make do and defer hardware purchases. We have tried to add RAM to a Latitude D610 to improve user performance. There is a 2GB stick plus a 512K stick. It seems that A06 (10/12/2005) is the most recent BIOS version. BIOS only recognizes 2GB. Windows recognizes 2.5GB, but states can only use 2GB.
Is there anything that can be done so that it could recognize the 2.5GB or even 4GB ( 2 x 2GB), within the 32 bit windows limitations of course?
I have two batteries for my laptop they no longer charge in the laptop. I have it plugged into the AC Adapter, but the battery charge light no longer comes on. The batteries both work, but they are both nearly discharged.why the charging is not happening?
was running xp pro. I have wiped the hard drive and will be installing win xp pro on it.I only know noticed, in bios, that it says the cpu is running at 800 mhz and not at its proper speed of 1.73 ghz. In the bios i set it to default settings and saved it but no luck there. The bios is A06 from 2005 but i have a friend who has the very same laptop and his is running at the correct speed of 1.73 and he has the same bios so i dont thing that is the issue.
I just replaced the motherboard in a Dell Inspiron 1440. The last step in the Dell Service Manual is to enter the correct Service Tag within BIOS. When I started it up and hit F2 and the section with the service tag could not be changed. Is there another way of changing the service tag to the correct one.
Well i was at school today using my E6400 at the school lounge. I had it on for about 2 hrs or so and all of a sudden there was a burning smell coming out of the motherboard and the computer just shut off on me. I was unable to turn it back on. So i called up Dell tech support. We went through some steps to try and recover the issue but was unsuccessful. So the tech decided to do a system Exchange due to the fact it could be a fire hazard. I should be receiving the new E6400 in about 5 days. Specs are identical or could be higher.
I am trying to install a Dell TrueMobile 375 Bluetooth module in my Latitude E6420. I have read the instructions in the E6420 Service Manual but it is not obvious where the other end of the cable on the 375 Bluetooth module plugs into the motherboard. The images provided in the Service Manual are of no luck, as they only show where the module goes, not where the cable on the module plugs into a corresponding socket.
I have a Dell D630 motherboard failure ( power light comes on for a few seconds and off ) Series 0PN302-12961-7CR - CN- 5060 REV A03 , Intel T7500 , Intel video . I want to know what model motherboard is compatible to change it ?
I am very curious with this Frankenstein-ish upgrade. I have seen both the Precision M4400 and the Latitude E6500 up close before and I do realize that both laptops use pretty much the same lower chassis and other modular internals with the only difference is the screen and screen bezel and touchpad unit.
With the exact port locations the same. Is it worth it to get a refurbished M4400 motherboard and swap it with a Latitude E6500 one and putting it in a fully working Latitude E6500?
The reason I ask about this is a friend of mine's mother works for a company that resells their ~1 year old Latitudes for a really cheap price (I think Latitude E6500's go around $250-$350 a piece!) and replace them with newer Latitudes and (rarely Precisions) from Dell the following year.
One of my mates has a dead M1330. I told him about the "oven" trick but his wife might hurt the both of us. It is however possible to replace the motherboard with the integrated X3100 motherboard correct?
I have xps gen 2 with a faulty video card and i was wondring if its possible to replace the motherboard with M1710 motherboard so i can fit my 7900 gs video card in it and put all the other hardware parts for the xps gen2 motherboard to the M1710 motherboard in the XPS Gen2 palmrest ... so can u please give me some hints if its possible to do it or not,so basiclly its replacing a motherboard and putting all the old part in the new 1 ..
I'm not a native english speaker but I'm trying to explain my problem as accurate as possible.
Since a few months my Dell D610 won't power up regularly when I press the power button. There are no lights visible when the button is pressed as there're no other signs of powering up the harddisk or cpu fan noise etc.
The weird thing about this is that from time to time the machine does power up even instantly. But obviously I can't rely on these random and rare moments. So I tried different scenarios with and w/o battery (battery is charged) with a different power adapter, different power outlets .....
I have installed Windows 8 on my Laptop and after installation I have had an issue where I have not been able to install the driver for for the Intel Centrino Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 High Speed Adapter because it throws up an error saying that the "parameter is incorrect", how I can get my Bluetooth working again.
My daughter's D610 slowly died during a 10 week car holiday trip in Northen Australia. From the description of how it gradually happened I assumed it could be bad power connection and eventually the battery failed.
Completely dismantled very carefully and tested the power connector, whilst not perfect I believe the solder joints were acceptable.
When power supplies PA10 or PA12 plugged in directly to the laptop no lights of any kind, with or without battery. Checked with other battery too, same result. The power supplies do deliver right voltage and good under load.
Have a docking station and partly to my surprise with the 95W or PA10 power supply the D610 works fine. With the PA12 or 65W power supply the docking station refuses to work telling you to shut down and replace the power supply.
Ran into a problem when I tried to test with the car power converter, which delievered enough power but was not recognised so docking station again refused. The second D610 I later had to hand allowed the car power to be used but under "protest", warning that performance might be poor. Eventually I got the PA10 which was accepted.
I have a second D610 which works fine on all 3 power supplies. Now having option for swopping parts, I would like to know what I can try to figure out what is causing the power interruption?
My dell laptop will load the dell screen but then go black. It had windows 7 on it. So I went under and selected diagnostic test under adipto? In which I am use to seeing a Bios screen labled Bios. The diagnostic ran but and passed everything except my hard drive. It recognizes and list on the Blue screen HDD Fixed and list a number. BUT under my diagnostic ut list the following code. 2000-0151 Vadlidation 62721 Msg : Hard Drive 0- #########, incorrect status =3E.
Do I need a new hard drive or does this mean I have bad sectors?
