Have you updated your OS? Is it muted? Is the volume up? Is the audio driver installed? Is the audio device enabled? Are headphones plugged in?

SOURCE: Dell XPS M2010 Starting Problems

Ok. Here is the thing. I hope everybody sold their problem, but I will just post for others who may experience the same thing.

1st believe it or not : there is nothing wrong with motherboard, as when you press the power button, computer will shut down. with defective motherboard it will just continue running untill you will unplug it.

2nd believe it or not : it can not be battery issue or hard drive issue, because it does not make any scenes in any way. I have to agree that hard drive on the right is semi-correct answer.

REASON:

IT is video card that messing up everything. And it is located right under right hard drive. That's why when somebody removed hard drive he/she accidentally corrected the cooling system of video card , which returned M2010 to live.

CONFIRMATION:

1. First remove the top cover from the computer. There are 2 sides the plastic things. If you look at the back of your laptop you will see 2 small holes , one on every edge of the back. You stick something there it will loose the front cover.
2. unscrew all the screws hat have ">" or "<" signs next to them. there are something about 15-16 screws in total: this will allow you to open the cover under wich you can find the motherboard and stuff. When you open the cover pry to start the computer, and you will see that fans will not start even after 1-2 minutes after you hit the power button.
3. Remove the right hard drive and under it you will find screws A, B, C, D (silver) and also 1,2,3,4 (black) unscrew the black ones first, them remove video card with the cooling mechanism. now try to turn on the machine. you can see that after like 20-30 seconds fans start working which means that motherboard is fine and it was the video card that was giving problems.

SOLUTION:

1. I am not sure what causes the issue but I have fixed it this way:
uscrew silver screws and disconnect cooling part from the actual video card.

2. clean both, video card and cooling system not touching sky blue foam ICs. That staff is needed to cool the chips on the video card.

3. let them dry for an hour or so after cleening, than apply some Thermal compound, thermal paste and re assemble the video card with the cooling staff. (mek sure no screw is loose or something)

4. put it back and turn on the computer. If it works , whell .. it works now :)

if not then either you levae some liquid on the video card or screws are loose. try to play a bit with screws. but my personal suggestion is just to wait for a minute or two until video card gets hot and fixes liquid problems itself :)

Try it. It worked for me perfectly ...

SOURCE: XPS M2010 boots in and everything works but fans

You can try installing this program that controls the fans on a Dell laptop. If this does not work you have a hardware issue with either the fans or the main board.http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/index.html

The solution is to formn a class action suit against DELL for this overpriced piece of junk. I went through 3 of them and they all failed.

DELL left these dogs out there in the market until the warrenties expired on all the M2010 machines and now they will charge you for their failure to build a solid product.

The Bluetooth Access Icon is nowhere to found in the control panel, so the manual is wrong as well.

DELL is acting irresponsble and needs to be punished. Let's form a Class Action Suit today.

The M2010 has a separate discrete video card from the motherboard.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Your power adapter is bad and is not able to charge the battery at all (which is why the battery is dead). Yes, this is common with laptops because of the constant plug in and plug out. Yo can purchase a new adapter for less than $25.00 on eBay. Anywhere else it will cost three times more.

Once you replace the adapter, the battery will get a full charge and you will be up and running again.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I will assist.

I have lost sound on my Dell XPS M2010


Yep - this I run into every start up, or every awake session from Standby - the problem is that the default sound device changes - I've gone through the control panel, and put a shortcut to the Sound mechanism in my taskbar - then when it changes, I just modify back to the Speakers/Headphones setting - I usually have to change stations on Pandora, or skip to a new Youtube, but it all works our very quickly.
