Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Latitude D610 -- Windows XP Professional

Sorry for all the following info., but it's a series of loops I'm going through. My question up front is whether a malfunctioning PCMCIA card can cause the entire computer to freeze up when making on the internet.

Whenever I can make an internet connection (beginning today after a long time of succesfully doing so), I have a problem with wireless connectivity and my system freezing up. On booting up, I am either able to make a wireless connection or I get an error message stating that the IntelPROSet/Wireless Software was unable tro detect a supported wireless adapter. Please install a supported adapter. I have an IntelPro 2915abg wireless connection. The Intel Software troubleshooting says to install a driver. I have installed the driver. The Device Manager states that my PCMCIA adapter cannot start (Code 10), and my attempts at the troubleshooting steps haven't helped. Although sometimes I'm able to get it working.

Sometimes there is also a Generic CardBus Controller error noted.

When I can regain a wireless connection, the strength is excellent, but I get the following error message on booting up: "You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer.
Details button
To restart the connection and try to establish full connectivity, click Repair.
If clicking Repair does not restore connectivity, the problem might be with the network, not with this computer. Contac the person who manages your network."

I can access the internet, but only for a short while (1 minute or so) before the entire laptop freezes, no mouse control, no ctrl-alt-del

I have clicked the Repair button. It didn't help.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

The freeze up problem is due to the limited HHD space or memories. please check your HHD and see how much free sapce you have, and check your memories. the base system came with 256MB, which is too little for anything to work porperly. for you to connected to teh wireless, you should have minimum 1GB of memories. some people may disagree with me, but that is what I found to work better, if you have more than required memories.

Dell latitude D610 vga drivers sites


Hi
All drivers for Windows XP for this laptop can be found here:
Product Support Dell US

If under the category heading you specify "video" then the list will give you 2 drivers - both in the form of executable files - which can be downloaded and installed onto the computer. One of the files is for the Intel graphics chipset, and the other for the ATI graphics chipset. You need to make sure of the chipset you have otherwise the drivers will not work properly, if at all.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Win98 drivers d610


Hi There,
Currently Dell offers no support for windows 98 on any of their products. The Latitude D610 laptop is specifically built for windows 2000/XP, therefor no drivers exist for outdated operating systems such as '98.
That's not to say, however, that you can't seek out windows '98 drivers for each specific component, which a lot of users have done.
In my opinion it would be much easier to install windows 2000 and download the drivers from the dell website instead.

Password lost


If it is the windows password (not BIOS Password)

tap F8 during startup (just after Dell Splash Screen)
select Safe Mode
Select the administrator account (has no password by default)

when in Windows
Start
Control Panel
Users
change your password

if it is the BIOS password, it is secured and you will need a reset from Dell by calling tech support. They will ask some security questions and then have you go through a procedure to get them a code for a password reset.
