Laptop and desktop motherboard do not compare at all.
main reason is the power management and bios difference.
after that is the heat condition in which laptops are always hotter when running in that small of a place.
The best is to find a forum that discusses your model in particular.
the best thing to do to get more power from a laptop is to turn off power management.
run msconfig and disable all startup programs.
then disable all unnecessary services.
of which there is several sites on that .
uninstall all unneeded software, clean the registry .
uninstall the antivirus and firewall software. load firefox with protection add-ons.
then have fun.

If you have flashed a bad BIOS to your motherboard then the simplest solution is to replace the motherboard.

Other solutions exist, but they are very specialist and involve programming the chip using a dedicated programmer.

Only Dell will be able to supply a replacement Dell motherboard.
Telephone Dell, and ask for Technical Support, to find the part-number and the (HIGH!) cost.

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

I have a laptop DELL VOSTRO 1000 i need the bios password Help me please!!!!


Your laptop has a Phoenix BIOS. Therefore, there are only 4 possible backdoor passwords: Dell, PHOENIX, phoenix, BIOS and CMOS. They are case-sensitive! If none of the above work, you need to reset your BIOS and then try again.

Same Bios Problem


Bios is always a tricky thing to do. Once you have found the bios update for that motherboard & you have double checked, then get a friend to check also or it's possible to make an expensive paperweight. Here is a site of dell products for the bios update>>http://search.euro.dell.com/results.aspx?s=gen&c=uk&l=en&cs=&k=bios+reset&cat=sup If after that you have had little success tyr calling them 0870 906 0010 or email them direct Meena_Siddhu@Dell.com

Hope you manage to get this sorted....

Heard pop and dell vostro 1000 cut off and will not come back on


Based on the symptoms (Power light on cord is on when not connected to laptop but goes out as soon as you plug it in), the motherboard has to be replaced. YOu may call dell to ask about their out-of-warranty depot or you can call their spare parts sales dept to purchase the motherboard, then find a local tech to replace it.

Keyboard doesnt function properly


It is possible that the keyboard matrix is shorted so when you use the external kbd it still gets the same errors. See if you can disable the main kbd in bios and if that solves the problem. You could also try removing the main kbd and see what that does. Otherwise you probably have a motherboard problem. The touchpads are usually pretty tough to liquids - check the cable on that.
