Hello dazz_hammer,

You can put up to Windows XP. If do, I would suggest to add memory and bigger hard drive.

Or if the pc has Windows Product Key Tag, and what ever the operating system it indicates then you can re-install that operating system.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Dell lattitude cpx charging pin and - TERMINALS


What? Is it time to wake up?

Oh yeah, Dell Latitude CPX,

http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Latitude-Notebook-650-MHz-Pentium/dp/B00005UJYF

AC adapter example for above,

http://www.prontocharger.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=d1161

DC Power Jack example,

http://www.all-power-jack.com/Dell/Dell-Latitude-CPx.html

I see the dilemma. The plug from the AC adapter has 3 socket holes, and the DC Power Jack has 3 prongs.

DC electricity has a Positive connection, and a Negative connection.

To find out which socket holes are for Positive, and Negative, let's look again at the DC Power Jack,

http://www.all-power-jack.com/Dell/Dell-Latitude-CPx.html

The Top view shows the jack upside down, and turned around. (In relation to how it mounts on the motherboard )

The bottom left view shows the jack primarily how it sits, (Mounted), on the motherboard.

The bottom right view shows the jack turned over, laying on it's front.
Also laying over to it's right side.

Note the three prongs. (Flat bladed pins )
The one in the middle is Positive.
The two outer prongs are Negative.

Looking at the bottom Left view, the Top prong is Positive, and the two bottom prongs are Negative.

Match it up to the plug on the AC adapter cable.

Going to test the Voltage coming out? (20 Volts)
The red Positive probe lead goes into the top socket hole, in the plug.
The black Negative lead goes in either bottom socket hole.

What if I'm wrong?

A Digital multimeter will just show a negative value. -20
An Analog multimeter's needle will go down towards the 0, instead of towards 20 Volts. (DC)

Just switch the probe leads around.

For additional questions, or if I am way off base, post back in a Comment.

Dell Latitude CPx 500 MHz Pentium 3 BIOS Notebook, stoped working it shows only curser on the screen i tried many times but still having the same problem please tell me how to fix it


I post before the recovery ..but now I see that this model is out of date and for it you need a windows 98 ..cause not even a windows xp will not run proper ..so what you need is to download an image with windows 98 ...and burn it on a disk and instal it again by booting from disk ..

I have a problem with dell latitude cpx h 500 when I want to get into the bios gets blocked


I would recommend connecting an external keyboard to the laptop and seeing if you can access the BIOS pages. It seems the keys are preventing you from doing so. The keyboard could be damaged.

The CMOS battery is on the motherboard of the laptop. If you can access it w/o damaging anything, you could reset the CMOS settings (clearing CMOS) and the password will no longer be valid. Hope this helps.

I have Dell Latitude CPx laptop,when it is powered on it gives the message, This computer system ,#8IT1F88-595B ,is protected by a passward autentication system.You cannot access the data on this computer...


The BIOS password has been set. You have to find the chip that holds the password and short it out. Not the easiest of tasks and you have to make sure you short the right chip. Dell knows that it happens and they are not quick to help.

How do i change my dell latitude cpx to english?


The computer BIOS is in english.
The operating system you have installed might not be a english one.
You need to reformat your computer using a english
version of Windows Xp and install this to your laptop.

Now you have your computer in english!!!
This will work!
This is my solution! Please vote!!!

Processor id recognized as 498mhz instead of previous 648Mhz


THE CPU IS TEST IN BATCHS OF 1000'S THEY WILL MAYBE PICK ONE OUT OF THE THOUSAND AND TEST LOOK A THE MAXIMUIM THE CPU FUNCATION AT THAN PICK A SAFE ALTERNATE SETTING OF MHZ FOR ALL CPU IN THAT GROUP, THAT ONE CPU MAY BE ONLY DEFAULTY CPU TO RUN AT 500 MHZ, THAT ONE HAS A PROBLEM IN THE CURCUITRY OF THE CPU, I WOULD RETURN IT TO WHERE YOU PURCHASED THE CPU AND EXPLAIN THE PROBLEM, INTEL ALSO IN THE CPU SPECIFACATION GIVE A TOLERANCE OF MAYBE 8-10%
ERROR ON ISSUES WITH THE OPERATION SPEED OF THE CPU, LETS SAY THE CPU IS RARED AT 500MHZ AT 1 % OPERATION SPEED IS WILL FAILURE OF 5MHZ, THAT CHIP IS STILL OKAY AND YOU JUST GOT THE RUNT OF THE LITTER.
NOW LETS SAY ITS RATE FOR 550 TO 600 MHZ THAN YOU HAVE A GOOD CASE ON RETURN BECAUSE THE FAULURE RATE IS TO HIGH ON THE % OF FAULTY REQIUREMENT,

I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND BASICLY HOW IT WORKS OR ASK SOME ONE AT INTEL TO EXPLAIN HOW THE FAILURE RARE ON CPU WORK.

PS

THAT PRODUCT IS NOT WORKING RIGHT, HAVE THEM RUN THE TECHNICAIN TEST PROGRAM, OR CPU TEST RATE IS, OR DRIVE PRO, OR CHECKIT SOFTWARE, OR WICHECKIT, OR DIAGNOSTIC UTILITIES SOFTWARE, QAPLUSWIN, OR THE TROUBLESHOOTER PROGRAM ON THE MACHINE.
