    thks for your help

    the battery will not charge in the dell d610

    the problem component ( chip) has been isolated

    the problem now is that it does not have any SPECIFIC markings as to what it is

    i believe that it is a MOSFET but the only markings are 4805

    it is an 8 pin surface mount beside the battery--need to know the generic name or compatible part and / manufacurer number

    its generic values also may help

    thks again

    You have tried calibrating the battery?

    Still, if you feel that you are capable of removing this and testing surrounding components that may have cascaded I suggest you ask the following expert on our site, who may or may not be able to help you on this specific problem. He is a board troubleshooter and repair tech in Australia, not just a board puller. He is more than capable of assisting you in the part or parts and where to buy despite his location. Just remember the time/day difference.

    You may say I referred you thou its not important.

Your best bet is to buy a parts laptop form ebay and canibalize the part you need. Dell is very good at keeping its parts abit esoteric, leaving you no option but to part out another laptop.

I also have a Dell 600 series and I like it for what it does. When I have to face this problem I'll be getting a parts board or entire laptop. They aren't expensive when you think about it.

I'll check my wholesaler trade pub and see it there isn't a company I can refer you to. If you say no don't bother, say so before I hunt through the listings, OK?

Take the chip out and try Radio Shack, they have a large selection of various computer chips, circuits,etc... If they don't have it in stock they have many electronics catalogs and should be able to order it for you. Your other option is contacting Dell, or getting a perts board off Ebay.

    This chip is the power management chip. That's all I know about it, I can't tell you the manufacturer, model, or part number. I chatted a bit with a Dell tech I use, but he couldn't tell me anything on the chip other than replace the board or send it to them for repair. I have replaced these chips before from dead boards that I picked up at auction or Ebay. I'd send you a chip, but I'm completely out. I've used all of them from the boards I have here. My last customer with this problem I replaced the entire board.

The laptop comes on but no pitchure on the screen

1) Use a flashlight, and shine it at the LCD screen of the Acer laptop at various angles.
Do you see faint images?

2) Laptop off you can also attach a VGA monitor (CRT. Looks like a small TV), to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop. Laptop on, press, and hold down on the Fn key, and press the Function key which toggles the graphics over to an external monitor. (Usually there is a icon on the key for this, on the keyboard)

Graphics present on external monitor?

If so you have a problem with the Inverter. (Screen Inverter)

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Much like the Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.
(Average Backlight size is half the thickness of a No.2 pencil, and 3 to 4 inches long)

An Inverter is used to convert the electricity coming from the laptop for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 Percent of the time the fault is the Inverter.

The Inverter is located inside the Display Assembly.
[Display Assembly:
1) Top cover of laptop.

2) Display Bezel in the front of the LCD screen, and surrounds the outer front edge of the LCD screen. {Looks like a picture frame}

3) LCD screen

4) Web camera if this model has one.

5) Wireless Antenna

6) Inverter

7) Backlight

8) LCD screen metal frame, and hinges

9) Various screws ]

With the Display bezel removed the Inverter is located at the bottom middle, below the LCD screen.

{If I knew the Model Name, and Model Number of your Acer laptop I MAY be able to post a link to a free Service Manual for it}

If no faint images are seen, and/or an external monitor shows no graphics, there is a problem with the graphics chip on the motherboard.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The graphics chip is mounted to the laptop motherboard via a BGA surface mount.

BGA surface mount:
To explain let me compare the older style of mounting Processors.

The older Processors have pins sticking out of the bottom. These pins lined up with socket holes in the Processor socket.

The Ball Grid Array type of surface mount has no pins on the chip. (In this case a graphics chip)
There are solder balls in place of the pins.

The area where the chip mounts to on the motherboard has copper pads.
The chip is lined up with the solder balls matching the copper pads.
Then heat is applied which melts the solder balls, and solders the chip to the copper pads.

If there is a poor cooling system for the graphics chip, the chip overheats, and the BGA surface mount becomes loosened.
The solder connections melt partially.
This creates a poor contact surface for the graphics chip to the motherboard, resulting in no graphics being shown on the LCD screen.

I await your findings with the flashlight, and/or external monitor. Would also like the Model Name, and Model Number. (Bottom of laptop)

Fan wont turn on infocus x2, instead makes funny siren noise and attempts to turn. Small fan inside works fine, larger one cant but will turn if touched, so doesn't seem to be anything in the way of it.

This problem is almost never the actual fan itself failing..
The intermittent whine you hear is the result of the Mos-Fet fan driver chip which is the speed control current amplifier.
It's an 8 pin surface mount chip on the bottom of the main (lower) circuit board. This is a common failure with these projectors.
The chip is inexpensive and needs to be replaced by someone who is skilled in surface mount component technology. You can replace the fan but you will still have the same problem. Hint, the bad chip is not the one closest to the large fan connector... It's the one closest to the small fan connector and it will measure 45-60 ohm's between pins 7 and 8. the part (rns70d) is discontinued however there is a replacement that can be purchased at...

Amp repair advice

check on the board to see if there is a resistor that looks similar, 90% of amps amps are matched in there design, meaning the left side is usally a carbon copy of the right, so if you look at one side and there is a resistor that looks like it's in the same spot on the other side, good chance thats the same one, read the colors off the one thats not burnt up. resistors come in different wattages,1/8,1/4 1/2 up to 10 watts, each wattage is a different size, most of the ones you see in the amp are 1/4 watt but some are 1/2 and 1/8. some on the output are 2 to 5 watt, but those are generally 10-18 mm in length, they are big ones you cant miss those. so once you get the color code, read the colors, ex red,gree,brown,last line is either silver or gold, that will tell you the resitor value. then google resistor color codes and then you can match the color sequence with the value codes, and that will tell you the value you need in ohms but then you have to get the size 1/4 watt resistors are generally about 6 mm in legnth, im measuring the actual part of the resistor not including the metal leads, just the body, so if its larger its probally a 1/2 watt if smaller its an 1/8 watt, 1/8 watt are about 4 mm. now go buy the resistor, but you might find it that tough, if its a common value radio shack might have it, but resistors are so cheap, pennies for a handful, good luck on your search.
