Dell D600 Freezing on network detection

Hello All,
I have a Dell D600 which has assisted me through the past 4 years with no hiccups. However, this has changed this week:

I had to change the motherboard frame (as the LCD screen hinges had snapped), and have done so with the utmost care. However, the laptop freezes when it detects a network...

I have removed the hard drive and tested it in another D600, which also freezes when trying to access the internet.

I have tried wireless and cabled connections with the same result.

Could someone please help?

Try a repair of the network connection (Right click it, repair) that will clear several settings that might be an issue. If no change boot to safe mode with networking, see if issue occurs in safe mode. If issue doesn't occur in safe mode, then you might try a system restore to a time period when the issue was not occurring. You can flash the BIOS to a current version if a newer version is available. You can uninstall the driver in the safe mode, reboot and re-install the driver. If the issue does not occur in the safe mode, you may also try editing the startup group of MSCONFIG to see if a driver installed there is causing an issue Last but not least, run a malware scan of the system (Malwarebytes from is highly recommeneded)

My Dell Laptop USB ports are not working any more

Do they not work on any device? Have you tried using a device that they used to detect in the past? Maybe the device you are using is too advanced for the old D600. For example, I would imagine it would have a hard time detecting a 1TB external hard drive.

If it will not detect a device that used to work in the past I would go into the BIOS or System Setup and make sure the USB is enabled. When you turn the laptop on just watch the screen and it will tell you which key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. I think it is the F2 key for the D600.

I doubt the motherboard is dead, the computer would not boot into bios or windows if tat was the case.
It's probably a bad mini card or bad usb circuitry. Ive seen alot of that. cheap Chinese parts that are only designed to work just past the 1yr warranty. Try a wireless modem in the pci2 slot, see if you can get internet that way.
