Taking out the CD drive will have no effect on this. Take it back as quickly as possible and have him fix or replace it. I hope you got some type of warranty with it. I sell refurbished laptops at my shop, I give a fix or replace warranty with every machine, the length of the warranty depends on the model. I say this because, my shop is located near several truck stops, and there is a guy that sells laptops out of the back of his car. He says warranty, but then is no where to be found if there is a problem. If you can't get the vendor to fix the problem, then get back with me and i'll see if we can get you up and running.

I have a reconditionned DELL Precision M3400 laptop that was factory reset when I bought it. I have had to turn on all the hard drives etc. but I am having trouble getting the internal modem to turn on. It...


Usually the recondition, or refurbished product from Dell have been retested to ensure they meet all original factory specifications. I don't understand why your modem and cd rom drive don't work. How long had you purchased it? When you said you can't get internal modem to turn on, you meant it not working?
There are only two things could happen to each of them (modem and cd rom drive) For Modem: please check it through device manager, and modem to see if it has red x or yellow question mark, or says unknown device, if you do have one of these, you need to install correct driver. Please check your Dell service tag number (it is on white sticker on back of laptop), and go to dell.com, support, and select driver and downloads, key in your service tag number, and download the modem driver to install. If it still doesn't work, then the physical internal modem is the faulty one. For your CD rom drive, it should work with just standard driver preloaded by the OS, you don't need to install driver for. It is either dirty, needs to be cleaned by the CD room cleaner disc, or it is bad. You can try to reseat by trying to take whole thing out and insert it back in. If you have Dell diagnostic cd (usually comes with your laptop when ordered) to run hardware diagnostic to find out the faulty one.
This is the common issue with refurbished laptops (most common issue is with keyboard). When buying refurbished one, you have more chances to have some part issues. I suggest to reinstall modem driver to see if it works, and try to clean cd rom driver and reseat it, and hope for the best. Let me know the status Thanks

Just bought a reconditioned D620. The orange light above the Wireless Lan switch keeps flashing. Also, I cannot get the machine to work wireless. How do I fix this please?


Sadly I have had 4 bad experiences with reconditioned Dell hardware. All bought directly from Dell they were defective. Dell has no quality control on its reconditioned/refurbished hardware. Before banging your head against the wall too much on this issue I would simply return it. The fault you are describing can be related to a defective wireless lan adapter. -Ravi Shanghavi

To get a master password for the system, you'll need to contact Dell Technical Support 800-624-9896 for USA, prove you are entitled to use the system and then they can generate a new password. If out of warranty, there may be a fee.

My Logitech cordless numbepad keeps turning off, despite fresh batteries, and isn't working.


The pad is defective. Why not get a brand new one? It does not cost much though.

Cheers.

I think you are wasting a lot of effort, I know how you feel and sometimes you cannot win.
Junk it for parts.

I do volunteer work for Technical Aid For the Disabled (a charity organisation) and repair/refurbish laptops and computers for disabled people and I hate to see good computers go to waste.
