Question about Dell Latitude C640 Notebook

1 Answer

Power problem Hi to you at FixYa. My Dell, model PP01L, Latitude C 540 / C 640 starts up as expected, but runs only for 3 minutes first time. It switches off suddenly, without any notice. When restarted immidiately, it runs for approx 1 minute, then switches off again. The third restart maybe doesn't work. I suspect an overheated component, but which one is typical ?

Hello. I have a Dell Latitude PP01L laptop. I am


That's a hard one. Not all laptops provide that kind of information of date of manufacture.
If yours does then it will be printed on one of the stickers that are underneath the laptop.

If there are no dates on any of the stickers then you are stuck there.

The sound card only loads at startup once in a great while for my dell latitude model PP01L

It sounds as if your audio card has died. Start over again, do the following:
1) Turn the computer off
2) Remove the audio card
3) Restart and uninstall the drivers
4) Turn the computer off
5) Install the audio card
6) Restart and let Windows install a driver or install the driver yourself by going to the cards web site and downloading.
7) Run Windows or MS Update to confirm that the most up to date driver is installed.
8) Restart the computer

If after doing the following and the card still does not load at start up very time, the card has died. Sometimes a malware program running at startup can cause these problems so make sure that your machine is clean before doing anything.

I am afraid Dell did no plan Windows XP for Latitude C600 thus Dell has not made released certified drivers.

Generally, Windows XP SP2 should have most of the drivers built in. Reply if you have device(s) which lack drivers and I will get you the drivers at best effort.

Also, try Windows 2000 drivers. Normally it should work
