Dell Latitude D630 freezes

My Dell Latitude D630 powers up and boots into Windows XP, but then it freezes after a few seconds. I can't scan for viruses or turn off anything because it freezes before I have a chance to. If I boot into safe mode it doesn't freeze. I've tried to delete the latest installed apps, but some cannot uninstall in safe mode. Please please help!

    One possibility is poor solder contact with the nVidia Graphics Chip. I know, as mine was solved by apply a Reflow tool to the chip. I followed the Dell manual to remove the Heat Shield first. Clean out all the old fan and Heatshrink dust first. Try some fresh Heat Sink paste and see if the problem is fixed. (It can all be tested with an external monitor, mouse and keyboard, the laptop key board is easily clipped back on to power on the laptop for testing. The cleaning did not fix my problem so I tried the Heatgun Reflow trick using an ATTEN 8586. High heat for about 80 seconds. Voils, After cooling and reapplying Heatshield I have a fully working Laptop.

SOURCE: Dell latitude d600- won't boot up!!!

Try this. Press down hard on the f7 and f8 keys while trying to turn it on. Some if it does turn on then odds are that the solder joints on the bios chip (which is below the f7/f8 keys) are bad. You can try to touch it up yourself, but it is not an easy job.

As far as I can tell the d600/600m have this issue a lot.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude c640 Disable BIOS memory

Just use recovery console of windows xp bootable media and use the following command.

chkdsk (to check the volume).
fixmbr
fixboot

It happens due to improper shutdown methods which has caused the system volume to corrupt the MBR.

while in safe mode with network connectivity, go to trend micro website and do a free online scan. If you have Windows Defender updated, then try a full system scan, also while in safe mode.

My Dell Latitude D630 won't power


Without a doubt it is the video processor. I'm almost certain it is the Nvidia equipped model. I've repaired three of these successfully. I've seen offers to repair them for $125. I'm not in business to do them, we have about 25 of them at work and I fix them as a value-added service to my company, which they appreciate. Repairing them is not for the average person to attempt. Many things can get broken taking them apart. Lots of screws of varying length that all must go back where the come from. I'm very familiar with component level repair (not board swapping, fixing what's wrong on them) having done this professionally since 1978. They run Windows 7 very well if updated with BIOS version A17, have a good hard drive and 4 gigs of RAM (3.5 gb available under 32 bit ver, the full 4 gig under the 64 bit version. Someone wrote that they don't run Windows 7 and I'm afraid that person is FOS. Probably worth fixing IF the case isn't cracked, battery is good, and screen isn't damaged. It's hard to chunk something that needs one hour of work to restore, most often without parts!
Also sounds like your battery could be just about dead.

Problem on the device driver/ motherboard


Boot under XP, go to Dell's website and download the XP driver for your laptop noting where it is saved. Don't install it, copy it to a thumb drive or a CD. Reboot into Windows 7 and then install the XP driver. You'll get a message that it isn't the correct one but choose install anyway. That chip doesn't fully support AERO in Win 7 but will do most everything you will need. If you want to disable the pointing stick on the keyboard, download the XP Dell trackpad software. That lets you go in and deactivate the pointing stick. I find it annoying.

try logging in as Administrator or Admin with no password. Lots of times people leave this blank. If you do not have any password then you will need a boot disk to unlock it.

Can you boot in a Safe Mode with no problem? If you can try to use System Restore to return Laptop to previous state. Go Start----->All Programs------>Accessories----->System Tools-----> System Restore It's easy to use and it may return your system to time when it worked properly. Good Luck!
