Question about Dell (04U621) for Latitude D600, Inspiron 600M Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer keeps shutting down

The problem I am having with my 600, is that on boot up, it will either complete the boot to XP then then freeze up, which needs a reboot. Or, will not boot initially and the letter A light, flashes, then the laptop shuts down. Any ideas?

Re: Computer keeps shutting down

Did you download the latest drivers from dell web page? I had a similar problem with my Dell D620. The problem was the chipset drivers. I downloaded the chipset drivers from dell and the the problem disappeared.

IROG-1 at start up keeps repeating how to fix

Not sure what you mean, but I assume that you mean that your computer starts to boot but never completes the boot process into Windows, it just freezes. Am I correct?

Hp nx6110, stays in a boot-up loop

Hi, If you are sure that it's not overheating, then it could be the hard drive.
A boot up loop is an indication that the boot up sector on the hard drive is corrupt and broken. The hard drive tries to find this boot sector to boot up your computer but it can't. It keeps trying to find it again and again and again and keeps looping. Hank

My mouse keeps freezing

Blue screen is not a good sign at all. It can man alot of things, the driver is not right, you have a virus on your computer, or someone is in your computer. I would go and get and good firewall program or use xp or vista firewall. If that doesn't work then you do have virus. I would do a complete refresh on the system longest you have the recovery disk.

System just shuts off randomly

It will do this when it senses that the fan is not working properly or that maybe a setting fo the fan is incorrect

First off. If you changedanything using any motherboard utility then change it back or reset defaults.

Second. Open the computer case and check that the fan and poer supply are not full of gunk after you have unplugged the computer.

if so then get a can of compressed air meant for cleaning computers and take it outside to blow all the gunk out whilst wearing glasses.
Dont poke the nozzle inside anything.

When you have done that check that the cooling fan for the cpu is secure to the cpu itself (dont remove unles it is loose)

Also check that the fan spins freely.

If it doesnt or feels loose then replace the cooler

Check your manual for the exact instructions but you should remove the cooler completely


Now with nothing more than isopropynol and cotton bud sticks or another alcohol based cleaner remove the old thermal grease / sticker from the top of the CPU (make sure it is clean)

At this point it is up to you but you could consider a newer better cooler
You could take your old cooler to a good computer shop show them it and just ask for a better one

If you are using your original cooler then here we go
Do the same with the underside of the cooler.
While the cooler is off it may be worth giving it a good 8low job
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions
Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business.

Another consideration is that many cases have places in them for extra fans and usually extra connections on the motherboard too.
They are quick and easy to fit.

Quite often I will fit TWO in what is called a push/pull configuration. One pulls cool air in while the other pushes hot air out

Cannot upgrade pc to xp

Hi again sberg569, I see more post from you on this subject. If ME was installed by a manufacture (Not by you). There is most likely a small hidden partition at the top of the drive. Too small to allow windows to install. Suggest you download & run Darik's Boot And Nuke software. Choose your bootable software. Floppy disk or CD-ROM software. Darik's software will completely wipe the drive including any hidden partitions. Once completed window should install normally.

Shutting down then starting back up whenever

Ya. If it keeps re-booting then it may be a virus (my things virus)
If not, go to system properties and start up and recovery settings. remove reboot on error settings (in XP) It doesnt fix the root cause but may stop your frustration
