Trouble Turning on my labtop

I installed a new hard drive on my Latitude d610, and now I am having problems turning it on. Sometimes I have to push the on botton several times before I can get it to start, once it's on I have no problems with it. It's fustrating because I'm not sure if it needs a new switch or maybe something got mix up when I installed the new hard drive.

The power button is simply a push stick to the circuit board underneath. Remove the bezel by prising it up on the right hand side. You can then press the button underneath to determine if the problem is with the bezel or the circuit board. Usually the problem is that the bezel button is broken or has lost is springyness. A new bezel can be purchased on Ebay for around £5.

I just bought a Dell DHS computer without a harddrive at a yard sale, how do I install a hard drive for it


First you have to make sure you bought the right kind of hard drive (IDE or SATA) to make the installation and connection easier. IDE drives have a set of prongs or pins that stick out. SATA is the later type and does not have prongs or pins sticking out. You just turn the laptop over and remove the cover where the hard drive will be housed. Usually it will have an icon of 3 circular discs on it. Most laptops will also require a Caddy that the drive sits in before it goes into the laptop. And some might require a interface.

I suggest you look on ebay and see if your computer's make and model requires a hard drive caddy or interface.

http://www.ebay.com

In the search box just type your computer's make and model followed by hard drive caddy. Example: Dell Latitude D610 Hard Drive Caddy

In the search box type this is see if it requires an interface: Example: Dell Latitude D610 Hard Drive Interface

My Dell D610 starts and operates properly, but completely locks up after about 10-15 minutes. I let it cool, and it will start again. I have checked and the fan does run. I cleaned the area around the fan...


you can download this to see if it is getting really hot first.

after you install it you can go into the settings and turn on the monitors for the cpu, gpu, ram, and sometimes the hard drive. you can turn on the fan monitors too to make sure they are working. you can control the fans as well. i use it on all my dell laptops. it its not freezing becuse of overheating then it might be the hard drive or you might need to reinstall windows

Module Bay


The D610 second battery is installed in the slot occupied by the CD Rom.
This is an additional omponent that can be purchased to extend the battery life for the laptop.

Unless you have this battery module installed the error is completely normal.

Having trouble turning on my laptop


Installing a new hard drive has nothing to do with the power switch. It may have become dirty or worn, but I would recommend that you hold it in just a little while when turning it on. That should work.
If, as you say, everything works once it's on, then your hard drive installation is not at fault.
If the problem gets worse and the computer finally doesn't start at all, then perhaps you have a problem with the switch and you'll have to deal with that--many times this means a new motherboard (unfortunately).
