Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

2 Answers

After a certain period of time, my computer will shut down, although still powered up. When I say it shuts down, I mean the screen is black, but the fan is still running like it is on. It doesn't respond to anything other than a hard boot, then it powers back up fine. This is probably something simple, but can you help?

Check the power settings in the control panel and see if the computer is going to sleep, go to run then type in mmc devmgmt.msc or go to start then right click on computer then click manager then click device manager, then find your mouse right click on it and go to properties then go to power management then check the box that says allow this device to wake the computer do the same thing with your keyboard then it might stop doing it, but it could be something else though but you can try that, thats one solution

Connectivity issues:


Network adapter power settings:

The first thing you'll want to do to prevent your wireless connection from dropping is to see if your computer is managing your wireless card's power. It may be instructed to shut off your wireless connectivity after a certain amount of idle time goes by. If you have system specific utilities, such as Dell's Quickset, make sure that the wireless power management isn't set to shut off the card if your computer is idle for a certain period of time. Second you'll want to check the settings on your wireless card via your device manager. In Windows XP





  • Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
  • Select "Hardware" and click on "Device Manager"
  • Find your wireless card under "Network adapters" and double-click it.
  • Verify that there aren't any auto power management settings enabled that might be shutting your card down prematurely

No boot and CPU overheat warning siren. The CPU fan appears to be working. This old computer was recently packed up and moved, but booted once after the move.


Although the cpu fan may be working, the alarms are set to a temperature setting, so if the heat-sink that the fan is mounted gets clogged with dust ,dirt hair etc.. the processor temp rises and the alarm goes off. And in some cases if the user doesn't shut it down within a certain time period it is shut down automatically.
When you boot it up, the temp might be rising to that setting faster than the operting system can load.
Try a vac to clean it / or compressed air to blow it out

Automatic shut off?


Usually you set this by going into the power saving settings in the screen saver settings.

You can set the monitor to shut down pretty much when you want it to from this settings screen.

Good Luck,

My Powercom UPS battery backup is lasting for 5 minutes than it is shutting down.Can you provide me the solution. Model No. is 2200APRM1320W It is very urgent, please.


The UPS can temporarily provide power to IT hardware in the event of a disruption to the Mains power supply. The UPS should stay powered up for long enough to enable the hardware it is protecting to be powered down in a controlled manner, before shutting off itself. The 5 minute period seems reasonable for such a task (although significantly less than the rated time), and if at any point within that period the Mains power supply comes back online, the hardware could continue to work.

I note that this particular model is supposed to provide battery power for 85 - 95 minutes. The amount of time it can supply regulated voltage for will depend upon the load placed upon it. The greater the load (in terms of current drawing devices), the shorter the amount of time that the UPS will be able to provide power.

There may be a Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (parts): 2 years for this model, although labour charges will probably be made.
