I would say it is more then likely due to heat issues caused by the heavy use of the graphics chip playing that game. I would recommend using a cooling pad of some type to help keep the heat down

Installing internal dell m90 smart card reader


You have to take apart a good portion of the laptop to reach the Smart Card Reader spot. You need to turn off the computer, unplug the AC power and remove the battery first. Make sure that you are grounded to the computer. Then remove your optical drive and the hinge cover. Next you remove the mini-card antennas either from the mini-card or their secure spot, display assembly, the keyboard and the palm rest. Then you can reach the screw for the smart card reader and the place on the motherboard where the smart card reader connects.
The full set of steps and pictures is available from the Dell support site, http://www.dell.com/support/Manuals/us/en/19/product/precision-m90 . See the Workstation Service Manual. The direct link to the English version is ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_precision_mobile/precision-m90_service%20manual_en-us.pdf . There are multiple pages you need to follow.
I hope this helps.

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.

When turning on my dell m90 my power light just blinks and then cuts off, thinking it's the motherboard. what do u think and i bought another motherboard, how do i change it out.


I could try other trouble shooting before you start replace the MoBo. Have you take the RAM out?(and replaced it if just removing it and popping it back in doesn't work) Have you tried to boot from something other main HDD? Maybe get an install CD for Windows or Linux(which you can burn for free). Your graphics card may also be dead. Here is a Dell guide to replace that(it be cheaper then a full MoBo, but that might not matter to you if you already own a 2nd Mobo) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsM90/en/sm/video.htm#wp1006368
If you try all that stuff and it fail, yes, the MoBo is likely bad. To replace a laptop MoBo is very very complicated, I wouldn't try it unless you are sure you can do it(if you have experience).But here is Dell's step by step to remove the MoBo.

Hi my dell precision m90 has problem. While I'm doing some work it instantly shot down without any warming. From other answers from your site can be an overheating problem but a run the check for all the...


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

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.
