Try installing other anti-virus like NOD32 or karspersky. You can also try to do a system restore, this may or may not solve the problem though,also using the system restore may get rid of some application you have install prior to the date you will revert it to.

Or you can try this online virus scan

have them scan your system (its free),that way you'll know if your computer really has a virus or not.

SOURCE: reset to factory settings

You can reset your computer back to factory defaults without your disks with the hidden recovery partition built onto you computer.

For XP, Right after you turn on your computer, hold the <CTRL> keyboard button down and keep tapping on the F11 key until the Dell Restore by Symantec Window comes up. Then click Restore then click Confirm.

*If yout computer came with Vista, the steps are a bit different, and they are on the website on the link I provided at the bottom (as well as for XP*

Here's the Dell Webiste with the Step by step instructions to perform the factory reset. Just pick which Operating System your computer came with and follow the steps:

SOURCE: hi my dell precision m90 has problem. While I'm

The M90 has 2 fans (1 processor and 1 video card)
while the fans can be passing diags, the system could still be having a cooling issue. Some things you can do are:

  1. Use some canned compressed air to blow out the fan intakes and exhaust ports. The hear exchanges can become clogged with dust and debris causing the cpu or video card to overheat.
  2. The M90 video card is replaceable. If the issue is re-occurring on a regular basis, there is a decent probability the issue is the card. Try booting to the F8 Menu and run system in the VGA mode to reduce the load on the video card. If the system runs without issue in this mode, then the video card is suspect.
  3. From OFF, Hold the Fn key and press the power button to initiate diags and see if you get a diagnostic failure.
  4. Update the bios and video drivers, see if issue resolves.
If issue still occurs after all of the above, then replacement of the video card may be required

SOURCE: reset my dell d630 to factory settings

The Dell D630 does not have a factory restore partition on the hard drive. Your only option is to use the windows restore feature that is accessable off of the start button, all programs, accessories, system tools. Plan B would be to borrow an operating system disk that matches the Certificate sticker on the bottom of the laptop, and then download all needed drivers from the Dell Website.

Installing internal dell m90 smart card reader

You have to take apart a good portion of the laptop to reach the Smart Card Reader spot. You need to turn off the computer, unplug the AC power and remove the battery first. Make sure that you are grounded to the computer. Then remove your optical drive and the hinge cover. Next you remove the mini-card antennas either from the mini-card or their secure spot, display assembly, the keyboard and the palm rest. Then you can reach the screw for the smart card reader and the place on the motherboard where the smart card reader connects.
The full set of steps and pictures is available from the Dell support site, . See the Workstation Service Manual. The direct link to the English version is . There are multiple pages you need to follow.
I hope this helps.

My Mic in Dell Precision m90 stopped working after i downloaded Skype? Any suggestions on how to get it working again?

Have you checked the sound settings in Skype? Usually skype lets you to set your sound equipment individually rather than using the windows general settings.

Especially if you have onboard mic. Try the call settings sound options in skype and check to see if it is working.

My Dell precision m90 stopped working. It won't turn on. It sounds like it wants to but then stops. It was saying that the battery needed to b replaced 4 like a month. Do I need 2by a new battery? Or...

The computer runs off the battery, if it will not hold a charge or take a charge, there will be no power to run the computer. Rechargeable batterys will get to a point of no power at all and will not except a charge of anykind.

I am a Support Tech for the Army and really can't find a solution to this problem. When I plug in my Cat5 cable it still says network unplugged only on my M90 computers, all other Dells I have connect find...

Perhaps the "other" Dell's network cards have auto-sense, and you're using a crossover cable... when you shove it into the M90, you get nothing because the wiring of the Patch Cable is not right.

Try a known good "straight through" patch cable.

Dell m90

This is a simple driver glitch. Uninstall the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you may need to readjust the settings.
