Dell Latitude 610 boot up to usb cd rom

Q: Dell Latitude 610 boot up to usb cd rom

Well its like this, all is not good at this point !!!!!!!
1: can't boot up from disk , all I get is it asking for the location of the COMMAND.COM INTERPRETER
2: Once I do get it to boot what do I need to get dos to recognize the external CD ROM that is connect to the USB port, so that I am able to install Win XP.
3: Or is there another way to connect the external ROM to the laptop rather than using the usb port.

Your help on this matter would be greatly accepted.

Have a Dell laptop is win XP pro 32bit. It was running fine when I went to bed but next day turned it on and it couldn't boot had a message saying " unmountable_boot_volume " . Codes behind it were 0x000000ED ( 0x82324030, 0xc0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000.). Failed the DST Short Status test. Had statement saying " Log contains previous errors ". I think I've tried all combos of F keys alone and with an, control, even alt try to bring up factory setting app. Help plz.

A:Dell Latitude 600 cannot boot up

" unmountable_boot_volume""Failed the DST Short Status test""Log contains previous errors"Put those 3 statements together & it's very likely your hard drive has failed. Hopefully you have backup copies of any important data because you may not be able to recover it. Try running a diagnostics test to confirm the hard drive's status. edited by riider

I have a Dell Latitude 620 laptop, running XP pro. A few months back it would not boot nor charge the battery. I assumed the problem was the battery so I bought a new battery from Dell, it installed nicely and I let it charge for about a day. Now either on battery power or with the AC connected the laptop will not boot. Upon pressing the start button, the green 'power' light comes on and the 'disk' light, (this is what I call it, it looks like a stack of platters, and is located right beside the power light) comes on very briefly, maybe 1.5 secs and then goes off. No beep, no whirr of any drive, no noise and nothing on the screen. Any suggestions? How do I troubleshoot this? Any advice at all would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance guys!

Hello!, My Dell Latitude D600 has stopped working for about a week now and I've been searching through many forums on how to fix it. I have a mixed variety of symptoms. When I try to turn on normally (Just holding down the power button) All the lights, caps lock, scroll lk, power, etc except the battery light but then turn off after a few seconds. Also, when I hold down the power button, and windows button all the lights go on, then the battery light goes red, and then the computer starts to run. (I can hear the fan, and the CD Drive starts working) but the computer monitor still remains black. I have left it like that for a few minutes, but the same symptoms still occur after. Any feed back on this would help, thanks in advance!

A:Dell Latitude D600 won't boot up!

It could be a problem with the power supply or possibly the motherboard. I had that model and im guessing its at least 7 years old.I got rid of mine because the motherboard went and it wasnt worth fixing.

My wife has a Dell Latitude D520 laptop. It is about 6 years old. Last night we had a storm and the power was out a short time. The laptop had been left on. My desk top showed no ill effects from the storm. My wifes laptop however, when she went to use it, showed "low battery" and started to boot up but then just shut off. It was plugged into an outlet as it almost always is. I am not sure if this is a battery problem since the battery is 6 years old even though it has seldom been used or is something more serious. I was told that the computer should run on AC even with the battery removed. I have 2 choices it appears. Buy new battery or take it to a shop. Would appreciate any advice.

A:Solved: Dell Latitude won't boot

Yes, it should run on A/C power with the battery removed (it is suggested for long term A/C use, to remove the battery).

Get a multi-meter onto the A/C plug/tip, and see if it's putting out voltage. If it is not putting out, the adapter needs butter (cause it's toast).

If it is putting out voltage, then the A/C input to the motherboard might have only a fried input jack, which you can replace yourself, or at least test yourself, with the multi-meter.

A:Dell Latitude CP won't boot without old 2gb drive

Confirming your computer exactly from here:
Continue with the bios update, which will not affect your system or data files.

Be aware that no one gauratees bios updating, not even Dell
It is therefore highly requested that you use the backup old Bios (using the same Bios utility) first.

If it's any consolation I'd do it.

So I ve been trying to fix my brother s Dell laptop that had been infected with a virus that disabled any programs to run Without any luck of fixing it I decided to format the harddrive and install Linux I got a new copy of Ubuntu and booted from CD after many many tries it kept hanging while booting the CD but after lots of tries it finally booted from the CD Followed the will C640 Dell from Latitude not CD... boot pages and chose quot install to entire disk quot and it formatted the hd By the way through out this entire time the CD would run INSANELY slow It would take nearly an hour to get through a single page of instructions Nevertheless after the format the CD just hung there for over hours thus I shut down the computer assuming that I could try again As expected the HDD is completely formatted thus nonbootable But as of right now for some weird reason I am no longer able to boot from the CD drive I have done everything even disabled the HDD from the boot priority but whatever I do the CD will not boot No CD will It will try booting Dell Latitude C640 will not boot from CD... for several seconds the CD Drive will function spin make noises but thats it Then the computer will say quot no bootable drive press f to try again or f for setup quot I also haven t seen any options of legacy support on the bios so I do not think I can boot from a USB drive either Any ideas of why this might be happening or what I could do to resolve this issue Thank you for your time nbsp

Ok I ve been looking around online for a solution boot Latitude to D610 failure Dell to my Dell Latitude D failing to power on but none have worked and I think there are a couple details that are different from other people s problems I ll be as detailed as possible here to give a good description of what s going on When I press the power button the Dell Latitude D610 failure to boot power light comes on for a couple seconds and then goes out again and there are no noises whatsoever coming from the computer I ve tried all the combinations of unplugging the power adapter removing the battery holding down various F keys applying pressure to the buttons etc etc The thing that seems to be different with my problem is that immediately before this problem my computer had inexplicably shut down A few months Dell Latitude D610 failure to boot ago I had a problem with the computer getting very hot and completely shutting itself down I assume from overheating but it stopped doing that for a while Back when I had that problem however I was always able to restart the computer without any trouble Now the same thing seems to have happened except now it won t do anything at all Since this all started with the computer shutting itself down rather than simply refusing to start after sitting turned off it makes me think it s not an issue of a loose connection or a faulty power supply any ideas could overheating have caused permanent damage nbsp

A:Dell Latitude D610 failure to boot


the D610 ....

oveheating is never good..however that is what the thermal trip is for.

i would try reseating the memory first as loose memory can cause the laptop not to power on.

if not

first off, go here for the manual, your going to need some screwdrivers and some time.

Open the laptop up and check the CPU fan and cooler unit for blockages, its a good idea to get some heatsink paste and you will need to repaste the CPU if you remove the heatsink.

With the mobo out (its quite easy to get them out) inspect for any burn marks on the board around the components.

if you find any, then a new mobo will be needed as its probably failed, however if not reassemble the laptop and make sure all the connecting leads are seated securely.

if you have a test meter check your voltage on the power adaptor, i think its about 19volts normally on those models, but it will state on the back of the unit.

Unplug the system, remove or disconnect the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Remove and reinstall both memory modules and the hard drive.
Try powering up on AC only  - if it will but won't with the battery, the battery is bad.
If it still won't power up, remove the hard drive and see if you can get to a POST screen.  If you can, the hard drive has failed.
If you still get nothing, the mainboard has failed.

I power the laptop on and the Dell logo is there with a blue bar at the bottom of the screen slowly moving left to right. When it has filled up the block, the screen flashes to a black screen with small white writing at the top and very quickly back to the Dell logo and thereafter flashes between the 2 screens.
If I power off and restart, the flashing continues.  If I wait an hour or so,  it starts again with the Dell logo and bar beneath slowly filling up and then continues with the flashing alternating screens.
I have tried removing and replacing the battery.
I have hit F12 and gone through all the diagnostics but there are no error codes.
I am running Windows 7 and do hope this is not caused by my inadvertently clicking on a Windows 10 popup! 
Any advice gratefully received.

A:LATITUDE E 6500 will not boot up - cannot pass Dell logo. Please can anyone help?

Does this happen with or without the adapter connected?
Download the service manual - - and remove and reseat the memory modules and test each module in each slot and check.
Remove the HDD and check if the system goes past the Dell logo and gives any error message.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Run an extended test on the memory modules and the HDD.

If possible, update the BIOS and check:
Create a bootable USB -
Copy the BIOS and update the BIOS - 

If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -

Dear Friends Can anybody please help me with this weird thing My laptop Dell Latitude D After power failure the computer failed to boot It did beep signaling error but can t recall the sequence What I saw is that any time I try to turn on the boot starts however the screen is black but faint picture of the booting sequence can be discerned hooked monitor D600 external unless won't Dell Latitude boot Then an orange led on the right led bus turned on and the computer shuts down itself I suspected that the inverter blew out and purchased compatible one second hand However it is important to say that the computer boots and works just as always if external monitor is hooked behind The monitor can be turned off and the laptop will still go up without problem However if the external monitor cable or power cable are unplugged the same kind of failure to boot ensues Also if the external monitor is hooked and the laptop had been booted even after any time once I unplug the monitor cable or its power cable the orange led turns on the computer turns off When I received the second hand inverter I installed it although it isn t identical to the original one After installation the monitor came back to life with light and picture but either during boot or short after that the Dell Latitude D600 won't boot unless external monitor hooked orange led turns on and the computer shuts down I tried to change BIOS settings and several times I could make my computer to boot for long period of times but during boot is always show for short time the orange led Also new warning came regarding the battery exhaustion and that I need to plug the ac adapter although the adapter is ALWAYS in since the battery is old Now the laptop never boots just like right after the inverter blowing However in external monitor is hooked as before the computer boots in a natural way no orange led and both external and laptop screens are working beautifully Now the very best thing for me is unsurprisingly to fix the entire problem and that the laptop will just function regularly As a worst case I don t care if the laptop will beet even without its inherent monitor since I always hook it eventually to projector However I need it to be immune to external monitor unhooking and that it will stay on until I hook it to the projector Any ideas Can I alter the BIOS to ignore failure modes To omit the internal screen Anything wise at all Thank you all in advance Yours Tournesol An interesting update When the laptop is running with external and its own screens together and the external monitor is unhooked for a very short time and glugged in immediatly the orange led shows up and a warning that the battery is too low and I should plug in the AC Note that anyway the laptop is always on ac since the battery is low and anyway why it is responding to the external monitor BTW if I unplug the monitor and fail to plug it is fast enough the computer goes down as if the battery is dead and its not hooked to the AC nbsp

A:Dell Latitude D600 won't boot unless external monitor hooked

Sounds like the motherboard has been damaged in a subtle way and it will have to be replaced. You have two problems. Usually when an external monitor only works normally it indicates the the LCD panel or inverter is bad. You have had some success changing the inverter, but the laptop shouldn't shut down on its own

Hi there, I have just been given this laptop for our charitable organisation: 1Gb ram 60 gb hardrive, but it came with the hardrive wiped clean and with no installation CD for drivers etc. Have loaded Windows XP Home, gone to the Dell website and installed most of the drivers following Dell's recommended installation order for drivers. Following this the boot up time is less than a minute. After installing Service Pack nr 2 the bootup time is 10 minutes. I have spent hours and hours trying to figure out what is going on ... this Broadcom security platform etc is just making it even more confusing. Would really appreciate if somebody could help?

Someone I work with has a Dell Latitude D620 and the screen blanks while booting in normal mode when in the dock. Laptop boots normally when not docked.

When I try and boot (in normal mode) when docked, I see the black "XP Pro" screen loading (but don't see where I can press F2 to get into setup or F12 for boot menu) and then the screen goes blank.

I thought it may be a screen resolution issue and I backed off the resolution from 1440X900 to 1280X800 but still no luck. Refresh rate is 60hz I do get video when I boot into Safe mode, but not normal mode. Any ideas here?

A:Dell latitude e6430 and dell latitude e6420

Joseph mate best leave as is after all it was made to function as it came. Now for the compound and copper shim personally I would not bother with the copper shim I can see no good reason for it the dual pipe again if it was made to work with one pipe then leave alone.

It is better if you renew the compound using a decent cleaner and compound and I can recommend these for that job

Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean for thorough cleaning and preparation and Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 for the compound.

Now it depends on who you listen to but I always use these products and after the old compound is thoroughly cleaned off and the surfaces prepped I spread the compound very thinly and across the both entire surface of the CPU and the heatsink with my finger inside a vinyl or latex glove and then place a rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU and replace the heatsink. If you touch the surfaces after clean and prep then redo it.

While you are in there do make sure the fan and the radiator are really spotless and I sometimes relube the fan bearings to make sure the fan is running at full tilt when needed.

Pretty much what the title says - Dell's new, recently-released ControlVault driver (version A19) does not successfully install on a Dell Latitude E6330.  I followed the driver installation order from the "Dell Business Client Re-Image 'How-To' Guide" and installed the Dell ControlVault driver last.  It did not work.
Attached is a screenshot of what I got, and the Windows Installer log.

I installed Windows 7 64-bit on my Latitude E6400. I cannot seem to find any way to install Dell Control Point. I got the Driver Pack to install. I found one download of Security Manager that worked, but I would like the Power Manager one.

I've looked on this forum a few times and any links I click on just redirect me to the Drivers and Downloads page. I get errors saying that my service pack is not supported.....I'm on Windows 7 Service Pack 1. I also got some 32-bit errors, but that's my fault for downloading the 32-bit version.

Does anybody have a link to the full Dell Control Point package (Power Manager, Connection Manager, Security Manager) that will work on 64-bit Windows 7?


A:(Dell Latitude E6400) Dell Control Point on Windows 7 64-bit

Here is a good article on reimaging the Latitude E6400
The Win 7  Control Point System Manager files are a bit tricky to find, but they can be downloaded from the following link.
This should help if you have installed the correct drivers in the correct order.

for the basics and schoolwork
and which is newer 

A:which is better dell latitude e5440 or dell latiude e6430

The E6430 has a metal case and is more robust, but uses an older CPU and chipset.
The E5440 is a plainer chassis with a newer generation CPU and chipset.
The E6440 is the concurrent update to the E5440.
There are too many possible configurations to definitively say which is better -- it depends on the CPU, GPU, etc. in the specific model (or that you choose when you order one, but since the E6430 isn't a current model,  you may be looking at used systems).

Thats a normal problem for those keyboards. You could probably have gotten those keys working again by reseating the cable from the motherboard to the keyboard. Now it sounds like you need a new keyboard. You can probably get one from Dell or possibly find a used one from ebay. Replacements can also be found online like this.

A:Old Dell Latitude XPi - very hot

If your new hard drive is higher RPM than the old drive, then that would explain the heat. Your old drive was probably 4500 RPM, and the new one 5400 or 7200. If that is true, there's not much you can do about it short of buying a new drive.

Then she asked me to get it connected to the internet through her cable modem. I thought that would be easy too but I have spent hours on the internet trying to find what sort of adapter is needed because there is no direct socket connection to fit the modem.

HERE is the Dell Lattitude XT drivers. They have Win 7 64 bit and 32 bit drivers. Select the OS bit you have.

Keep in mind the correct and required install sequence for a Dell (and many others) is (1) Install Windows (2) Install Dell Laptop System Software (3) Install motherboard chipset drivers (4) Install device drivers including video, sound, ethernet, etc.

Hi, I have just brought a Dell Latitude CPx back from the dead and it is working wonderfully apart from the fact that the Function (FN) keys don't 'function'.
Any ideas please?

A:Dell Latitude CPx

Humm... old.

When you say you brought it back from the dead, how so? Did you have a Dell recovery disk, or did you install an OS from a box into it? Was the keyboard okay before hand, or was it part of the reason for it being DOA originally?

The CPx series were one of those 'semi'-Dell machines, since the same notebook could be purchased in a number of liveries, including HP and Gateway (your machine looks exactly like my Solo 1400). If you loaded an operating system into it that wasn't from a recovery disk, then you probably need to download the drivers from the Dell website into it. Otherwise, the keyboad may be out of sorts, and may need replacing.

If you can find the service tag number (on Dell laptops, they tend to be on a thin white label and are only 6 to 8 digits long), you can punch it in here ( to find out what was on this beastie originally, and what can be downloaded to it.

I have an E6400 running Vista and an E4300 running Windows 7. Both with regular HDD's, wanting to upgrade them to SSD's. I have the SSD's - a Crucial BX100 250G for the first, a 120G Toshiba for the E4300.

E6400; I have 'cloned' with EaseUS Todo Backup onto the SSD, apparently successfully, via CD caddy, but it won't boot up when I replace HDD with SSD. Just get a black screen with a cursor. Could it be just that it is thinner, so loose?

I haven't tried to do the E4300, so any tips there... also read it could be something to do with Windows 'hidden files' not being cloned?

Also wondering if Win 7 or Vista is better - been happy with 7, just got the Vista machine. If one is better, can I clone one onto both & do away with Vista, or vice versa?

A:Dell Latitude SSD upgrade

When you boot into Windows and only the cursor is visible, click 1 (one) time only CTRL+ALT+DEL, select New Task, then navigate into the Windows folder, scroll down and click on explorer.

this is about a laptop, a classmate of mine, is selling, which reads "Dell Latitude 7400" and my friend is planning to buy that. but i cant find it over the net! i've tried searching with the model number but the search returns absolutely no result about it. [ finds other 7400s ] it has a little "centrino 2" sticker on it. so could it be very new or sth to be online?

A:Dell Latitude 7400

Are you sure it's not a Latitude V740 or E6400? There is no "7400" model.

Hi jkswimmer and welcome to Vista Forums

Sorry, but I don't recommend this. With a desktop system, then possibly. However, with laptops things are much more complicated. Power consumption and heat dissipation are the greatest concern and they are optimised for the current processor in the system. A replacement processor, if it is not identical, might have different power and thermal characteristics, in which case the system would fail to keep it within its normal working range. In addition to that, simply accessing the processor on a laptop is much more complicated than simply removing the side panel as you would on a desktop. You literally have to strip the laptop right down, being carefull not to lose the various small screws or damage the wiring and its connectors. And then, of course, you will need to repeat the procedure in reverse to reassemble it.
Personally, I would leave your laptop as it is, with one exception. To improve its performance, make sure that you have installed the maximum amount of memory that it supports (see manual for details).

I have a Dell Latitude D520 Laptop and am having problems with the display... I am running Windows XP SP3. When I switch the Laptop on all starts fine and all the Icons appear as they should. However, after approx 5 mins the Display goes off and no matter what I do I can't get it to come back on. After Restart the same thing happens. I don't think this is a Software Issue as it all starts as it should and the problem persists after I've tried re installing Windows onto it. When the screen Dims it is still possible to see everything very dimly in the background.

Any help would be greatly appreciated????

A:Dell Latitude D520 HELP!!!!

Is the power adapter attached when this happens? Laptops by default dim after 5 minutes of inactivity when the power adapter is not attached to save power but it should come back on by either pressing the power button once, or tapping the Enter key. Is the battery being recharged when the power adapter is attached? You can try this without the battery in, and just using the Power Adapter to test if the battery is the problem.
You can adjust the power settings by right clicking a blank space on the desktop/Properties/Screen Save/Power. You can change the time and what the power button does. (ex) pressing power button once to wake from sleep etc.

MaxClick to expand...

You may need to download newer drivers for your graphics card that is in your laptop. It sounds like right now your computer is using the default drivers from the Windows XP Disk which may not be good enough for your video to show up from a DVD. Did you try the Dell website for the video drivers?

Or you may need to download a DVD Playback Codec. They are normally not free, but there is a player out there that they come free in which is called VLC.

I had to reinstall windows xp professional home edition on a Dell Latitude D800. It works perfectly for the moment. The instant I try to install netzero dial up internet it starts freezing and I can't even get it to connect to the internet. When I cancel out of the netzero install/setup, it will still freeze just by clicking on something as simple as the start menu. I have reinstalled windows a few times, and every time I get the same result. Does anyone know what could be causing it to do that? Is it possible that the xp professional home edition is too much for the laptop to handle? Or is it that I might not have all the drivers installed that I need? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Cappi106, you said you reinstalled XP but did you formatt it first? You also say as soon as you try to install.............the software, have you first installed all of your drivers? e.g. audio, video and network drivers?

Nope! Besides, ATI RAGE Mobility?, is not a true 4Mb. The video memory is not on the die itself, but it is part of the packaging. The way these integrated units are set up, your using ram resources.

Dell Latitude CPi laptop. Worked fine earlier, knocked it off a monitor it was sitting on and now it doesn't work, go figure. It was off and closed when it fell. The biggest clue I have is this: When I hit the power button, the light comes on, screen stays black, but as soon as the battery charge light comes on (blinks periodically to let you know battery's charging) the light goes off. Nothing on the screen. When I try to turn it on without being plugged in, the power light blinks and screen still black. I've been working on this laptop for a while, and would like to get it working again. anyone have any ideas? I'd be happy to give any more information if needed.
