Ok. Try the below steps.

1) Remove the batter and power adapter. Remove the CD/DVD Drive and any other connected devices like pen drive or mouse.

2) Now hold the power button for 30-40 seconds. Release it.

3) Now connect only the battery and try powering on. If no luck, connect the power adapter and check. (till now do connect the CD Drive - It can be a issue with the drive as well)

4) If no luck, you can try removing the RAM from the laptop and fixing it back.

5) If no luck, contact Dell Support for Replacement of Motherboard.

I just bought a Dell Latitude C510/C610 ...it will post to the bios ok but will not find the new hard drive I just bought ...it is an 80 Gb WD. When I go to the bios I can only change the date on the first...


Try to find the setting for what is listed below....it may help out with the laptop finding the new drive. Even if your new drive is a SATA configuration, try below it may help you.

BE SURE that you put the Hard Drive on "Compatibility" mode in BIOS, which was defaulted to "AHCI" (Compatibility is also known as IDE).

To change that setting, you need to do the following:

1. Press F2 when booting up the computer
2. Select 'Config', then 'Serial ATA (SATA)'
3. Change controller option to 'Compatibility' / 'IDE'

Dell Latitude C510/c610 Can this notebook book from the USB Port? I want to install Fedora Linux on my newly repartitioned HD but I can't read the DVD (don't have DVD drive available).


When you want to boot to the USB hard drive just have the drive installed, reboot the system, select the appropriate function key to go to boot options (should tell you what to press in the beginning of boot up) and select USB hard disk.

An important thing to note: Most Linux distributions won't boot from a USB hard drive or thumb drive without a special program for unpacking it to the USB Hard disk. Check with the distribution website for special instructions.

Good Luck,

Dell Latitude C610 doesn't recognize hard drive


when you took out the old hard drive
there is a black hard drive connector
this would have holes to push on to the new hard drive
without this, it will not plug into the motherboard
be careful if one of the pins breaks the hard drive wont work
