Question about Dell Precision M60 Notebook

Dell Precision M90

I am having a problem with my Dell Precision M90 laptop.  It seems to have gotten a virus and the protection software is not clearing it.
I recently moved to another state from New Orleans, LA.  I wanted to clear my computer and reinstall the startup/Windows software, but I can't find my disks.  Is there anything I can do to get rid of the virus, besides using the Norton Antivirus and the Windows Defender?

Try installing other anti-virus like NOD32 or karspersky. You can also try to do a system restore, this may or may not solve the problem though,also using the system restore may get rid of some application you have install prior to the date you will revert it to.

Or you can try this online virus scan

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

have them scan your system (its free),that way you'll know if your computer really has a virus or not.

My Mic in Dell Precision m90 stopped working after i downloaded Skype? Any suggestions on how to get it working again?


Have you checked the sound settings in Skype? Usually skype lets you to set your sound equipment individually rather than using the windows general settings.

Especially if you have onboard mic. Try the call settings sound options in skype and check to see if it is working.

The M90 has 2 fans (1 processor and 1 video card) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsM90/en/sm/fans.htm#wp1000550
while the fans can be passing diags, the system could still be having a cooling issue. Some things you can do are:
  1. Use some canned compressed air to blow out the fan intakes and exhaust ports. The hear exchanges can become clogged with dust and debris causing the cpu or video card to overheat.
  2. The M90 video card is replaceable. If the issue is re-occurring on a regular basis, there is a decent probability the issue is the card. Try booting to the F8 Menu and run system in the VGA mode to reduce the load on the video card. If the system runs without issue in this mode, then the video card is suspect.
  3. From OFF, Hold the Fn key and press the power button to initiate diags and see if you get a diagnostic failure.
  4. Update the bios and video drivers, see if issue resolves.
If issue still occurs after all of the above, then replacement of the video card may be required

Seems that either the battery or the power adapter is defective. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

This is a simple driver glitch. Uninstall the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you may need to readjust the settings.
