Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M2010 Notebook

1 Answer

I have the same problem with my XPS One

The problem started last week. I continuously powered it on and off until it booted correctly. Last night the screen was blank again. Powering it on and off does not work. I called Dell Tech Support and they told me reseat my video card and memory. They also had me try hitting F2 and F12 on startup, but that didn't work because the screen is not coming on. They then told me it is a "NO POST" situation and they are going to send out a service tech to my home with a new MOBO, Video Card and Power Supply. Also, I had noticed the fans were running at full speed all of the time. I wonder if this all started when I updated my BIOS a few weeks ago???

Did you finally get your computer fixed and what was the problem?

SOURCE: Dell XPS M2010 Starting Problems

Ok. Here is the thing. I hope everybody sold their problem, but I will just post for others who may experience the same thing.

1st believe it or not : there is nothing wrong with motherboard, as when you press the power button, computer will shut down. with defective motherboard it will just continue running untill you will unplug it.

2nd believe it or not : it can not be battery issue or hard drive issue, because it does not make any scenes in any way. I have to agree that hard drive on the right is semi-correct answer.

REASON:

IT is video card that messing up everything. And it is located right under right hard drive. That's why when somebody removed hard drive he/she accidentally corrected the cooling system of video card , which returned M2010 to live.

CONFIRMATION:

1. First remove the top cover from the computer. There are 2 sides the plastic things. If you look at the back of your laptop you will see 2 small holes , one on every edge of the back. You stick something there it will loose the front cover.
2. unscrew all the screws hat have ">" or "<" signs next to them. there are something about 15-16 screws in total: this will allow you to open the cover under wich you can find the motherboard and stuff. When you open the cover pry to start the computer, and you will see that fans will not start even after 1-2 minutes after you hit the power button.
3. Remove the right hard drive and under it you will find screws A, B, C, D (silver) and also 1,2,3,4 (black) unscrew the black ones first, them remove video card with the cooling mechanism. now try to turn on the machine. you can see that after like 20-30 seconds fans start working which means that motherboard is fine and it was the video card that was giving problems.

SOLUTION:

1. I am not sure what causes the issue but I have fixed it this way:
uscrew silver screws and disconnect cooling part from the actual video card.

2. clean both, video card and cooling system not touching sky blue foam ICs. That staff is needed to cool the chips on the video card.

3. let them dry for an hour or so after cleening, than apply some Thermal compound, thermal paste and re assemble the video card with the cooling staff. (mek sure no screw is loose or something)

4. put it back and turn on the computer. If it works , whell .. it works now :)

if not then either you levae some liquid on the video card or screws are loose. try to play a bit with screws. but my personal suggestion is just to wait for a minute or two until video card gets hot and fixes liquid problems itself :)

Try it. It worked for me perfectly ...

I have a HP Compaq model NX 6110 laptop,which was working well until last week when it started to freeze but when you press on it especially above the touch pad it works,that trend continued until last...


That sounds like you have a bad connection in that vacinity.
Removing the case and resetting the contacts may fix it but it could be a crack on the motherboard.
Good luck.
