Question about Dell Latitude D630 PC Notebook

1 Answer

Computer starts up to a blank screen

When i turn on my computer it beeps twice (as it often does about power somthing or other asking my to press F1) however the sceen is blank so i assume its the same message and hit F1....wait a while and blindly log into windows. i hear the windows music but and pop up messages but still only see a blank (illuminated) screen.

This all occurred after i was haveing numerous video driver problems, finally got it to update and was working perfectly for about a day before the screen started freaking out (flickering) and froze. When i restarted the screen was blank but i could still operate the computer as stated above.

    i just installed a new video driver update last night....worked great until this afternoon

  • Anonymous Mar 04, 2009

    I have two Latitude D630, both about 1.5 years old; one is windows vista business, the other win xp pro. Both machines recently experienced the same problems:



    1. screen goes blank, freezes or the display gets distorted (colorful screen)



    2. upon boot-up, windows cannot load. screen is blank and the system just hangs.



    updated the drivers on vista and deleted some recent windows updates, that seemed to work for now (its been a few weeks with no issues).



    still trying to find the latest video drivers for the nvidia. the driver on the dell site didnt help.



    besides complete os re-install, any other suggestions?

To start the Setup Utility program, do the following:
1.
If your computer is already on when you start this procedure, turn off the
computer.
2.
Repeatedly press and release the F1 key when turning on the computer. When
you hear multiple beeps or see a logo screen, release the F1 key.

If a Power-On Password or an Administrator Password has been set, the
Setup Utility program menu is not displayed until you type the correct

Dell inspiron 1545 14 beeps (more details inside).


This indicates a motherboard issue, sub out the ram memory one at a time, test each as you go, if no change! The motherboard will need to be replaced, or the laptop.

I cant start my laptop . when i press start i gives beep sound twice and blanck screen


Sub out the ram one at a time and power up each time, if you are lucky! the machine will start up, if not! remove the main battery and try again. If no change! the motherboard is the problem and you will need somebody to take it to the next level and find out the cause.

My computer is having start up issues. When I turn it on it'll act like it's loading normally and then it'll beep twice. It'll go to a screen that will have several ERRORs on it and ask me to press either...


Hi,

It may happen when CMOS Checksom error i.e error may happen due to keyboard failure. Please follow the steps to short the BIOS

> Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battery, remove it & then with the
help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a
screwdriver while turning ON). It will short the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battrey & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

Now, restart the computer in normal mode. If still facing issues then I would suggest a full system recovery.


You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

When i turn on my ps3 a message pop up say somthing about harddisk corrupted and i tryed turning if off and on and i dont see no options popping up


Ok, this solution will erase your save games and any other data you have on the hard disk but not your trophies.
Make sure the PS3 is on standby (red light on)
Press and hold the power button.It will beep as soon as you touch it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then beep once more and go back to standby (red light on again).
Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep again 5 seconds later then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button
The PS3 will then ask you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. After you do this a recovery menu will load.
Choose "Restore file system"
Follow the on screen prompts and hopefully this will sort out your problem
