My dell latitude c510/c610 failing


Sounds like the fan may be failing and need replacement. On a system that age, it is debatable whether it is worth fixing.
You can boot to he resource cd and run fan diags is you want to try and confirm

Hi, the latitude c640 starts to boot and cuts out - no way of getting into bios, doesn't even start showing the bios before it dies, any help? andy


This could be a heat problem if the processor heatsink has become unseated or filled up with dust/hair/ etc.
remove the 6 screws labeled "k" from the bottom, remove the keyboard and inspect/clean it.

Dell C640 Turn On Problem


Probably an overheating problem. The best thing would be to disassemble your notebook, and clean the heat sink. If you're not experienced with this kind of things, don't do it. You can try to use a vacuum, or take it to a specialist.

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.
