Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Latitude D610 powering on but not reaching BIOS.

I'm running windows 7 trial version on a Dell Latitude D610, and when I turn it on it shows some strange colours and patterns, which look like factory test patterns or something. I don't know what the problem is and there are no details since after turning it on it doesnt reach BIOS, it just sits there showing different patterns every couple of seconds. I tried holding down the Fn key while turning it on, which showed either 3 or 4 flashes of the Caps lock key, one flash of the num lock, then the caps lock again which stayed lit. Does anyone know what these flashes mean?

I did a check and the D600 series I am pretty sure is not capable of running Windows 7. Re install the original OS or a Linux and go to the Windows 7 RC page and run the compatibility tool.

I need help, with a driver modem M5804 for DELL Latitude D610. I Installed Win 7 for Thin PC. Thank You.

Part of the problem is the version of Windows that you installed. The D610 does not have Windows Vista or Windows 7 support so they may not have drivers for Windows 7 on your computer.

You might try the Windows Vista modem drive for the D620 to see if the modem is close to the one in your D610. Note most of the Vista drivers will work with Windows 7. However you may have an issue since you are running the Windows 7 for Thin PC as you should be running the standard Windows 7 HOME, PRO, or ULTIMATE on your notebook. Was there a reason you got this version?

Wireless not working on Dell D610, installed drivers, enabled in bios able to use FN F2 key show icon but no lites above keyboard


it might be diasbled. try windows key + "x", if this doesn't work when you turn it on there, try going to network connections and enable the wireless. Go to control panel, select network and sharing, change adapter settings, you'd have something like wireless network connection, right click and click enable if its disabled.

This sounds like it might be some sort of virus or malware. Do you have anti-virus software installed? If you do, run a full scan of your system. Run it at least twice if nothing is found the first time. Windows doesn't typically tell you to press F1 to shutdown your computer.

If you don't have an anti-virus program installed, you can run the Windows Live One Care Safety Scanner from the web:

Power for battery on DELL laptop Latitude D610 as posted FixYa


In the BIOS, does it show the battery and it's current state? As weird as it sounds, I've fixed an issue like this on a D600 by updating the BIOS to the most current level. Weird, but true.
