Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

2 Answers

Will over heating cause the computer to freeze?

Trying to eliminate concerns for a Dell Lattitude d610 that freezes up after 45 minutes of use. No viruses found. No pattern of software identified. Laptop is often left on for aim messages and will freeze.

Focusing concern on a failing cpu fan or heatsing fan, anybody have a view on this solution?

    Overheated Processors will shut your system down abruptly, not freeze or cause your OS to hang.

Run Memtest 86 (which can be run from a booted from a CD as well as floppy) and if you run into errors, replace your RAM.  If you have more than one stick, make sure to run Memtest separately on both sticks.  You also want to make sure your Hard Drive doesn't have bad sectors.  Run scandisk for that.

D610's are almost always over-heating due to simple dust build-up. Our fleet needed to be cleaned out on a regular basis. Simply grab a can of compressed air at a office-supply store, or related, and aim it straight into the bottom fan, and back vents.

Unless you have squealing or your fan is not spinning at proper speed, or at all, your parts are fine and a simple remove of dust and debris should work.

If this does not solve your issue, please let us know. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate this solution. Thank you.

Plugged it in to a wall outlet, turned on the computer, the microsoft screen scene appeared, the jingle played, then it turned itself off and won't turn back on.


Unassemble the battery and after 5 minutes reassemble it, then plug it in another wall outlet and when the charging light turn on, turn on the notebook.

In my opinion, it sounds like a motherboard issue. The keyboard skips would indicate that the keyboard is not always getting the inofrmation to the CPU. If it freezes, it may be overheating.

HP Lattitude D600 Laptop freezes up


It could be a number of things. . Sometimes the unit will freeze when it overheats.. Have a look around the exhaust vents and see if there is excessive dust built up around there. If you notice any, you may have to take it in to get checked. If you are tech-saavy, then take it apart and clean out the CPU fan. Also make sure that there is good airflow around the vent when operating the unit.

If this is not the case, then you should take some notes to see if there is a trend when this happens. What sort of apps are running when it freezes at the 45 min mark. Is it only on battery? If so, its possible the battery is running out of juice and the software is not throwing the correct warnings - it just freezes the machine (this is exactly what my Asus EEEPC does to me when I let it run wayyy down on the battery - it freezes. However, it warns me a few minutes ahead of time). Try yours on AC and see if it has the same problem. If not, then its likely your battery. You may need to go in and tweak your power management settings to make sure that it warns you when the battery level is low.

DELL Lattitude D620 freezes


Check the dock, there might be a problem in the dock, you can also try insulating the edges of the dock with some tapes before docking and plugging the dell, sometimes a short spike of static can hang the computer. If all else fails, dell has a pretty good customer support, you can go contact them...
