Rispondi a "Why my laptop is not powering on."Did you already open it up? The D series is quite well to be opened (and re-assembled ;-)). Just around 15 screws… It could be that somehow your processor got loose (try loosening/retightening the ZIF socket of the processor. This can be even done w/o removing the heat pipe. Might even be possible with only removing the keyboard. If that does not help perhaps your processor is broken (can happen, but happens rarely). There’s quite some cheap replacement CPUs (~ 20 EUR) around. But this then means some more unscrewing.
Rispondi a "Best processor possible for the Dell Latitude D630?"And, having just received an X9000 for my Dell D830 yesterday (and running fine so far), I wonder how one could use the unlocked CPU frequency multiplier (FID), esp. when using the notebook only under Linux… Definitively, there’s no option foreseen in the Dell A17 bios to set the multiplier (well, it’s not a gaming notebook ;-)). Did anyone try this?
