Question about Dell XPS M1210 Notebook
I had ac adapter problem and i bougth a new one but the xps m1210 didn´t charge or power again, adapter looks fine. A technician told me that the motherboard protects itself when it detects adapter problems and have to disassembly the laptop in order to get access to the motherboard and unprotect it. some one knows how to do it?. Thanks
The M1210 suffers from the same die packaging problem with its Nvidia GeForce Go7400 chip as many dell laptops do. However dell does not admit this, and has only extended the warranties for recently manufactured laptops.
To get Dell to fix your laptop, despite it not being covered by the extended warranty, follow the instructions I have posted here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?p=4611553#post4611553
Dell is trying to cover up a critical flaw in what is supposed to be a high performance gaming laptop. It is my goal to make Dell come clean about this issue. Lets all let them know that they cannot get away with screwing over their customers like this.

Im not sure what the technician exactly meant. for portables, there are no jumpers to do that. We have the same case by the way. i replaced my motherboard and it works fine now.
