The flashing green indicator is telling you (and the notebook) that the battery is almost fully charged, but then by switching immediately to flashing orange, the status has changed to "battery charge is low". This is not normal behaviour and probably indicates a serious issue with the battery. My guess is that the charging is initiating some kind of rapid battery self-discharge.

Notebooks will power up and work without a battery just fine.

Try to operate yours this way. This will eliminate the battery from the loop as a potential cause of the BSODs you are seeing.

It has the VGA port to allow you to do so; the machine is designed to allow you to do this....so what's the problem?

If the D610 works when attached to the AC Power Cord, it is likely that your battery is not capable of taking a charge and needs to be replaced. I have 2 D610 Dell Latitudes and they are very good laptops.

Since this is a Service Tag then you need to change the BIOS password. Easiest way is to get the BIOS reset software directly from Dell's website, burn it to a CD/DVD, remove the hard drive, and start the machine from the optical drive. There are several related applications on their site but only one will do the complete job of changing the BIOS, changing the Service Tag ID, etc. The others will only do part of that task.

try Admin or Administrator Or it may be blank, just try to hit enter w/o entering anything at all. Good luck. Or when it boots up F8 and run it in Safe Mode. Many ppl never put a password for Admin. I've gotten into many computers that way.

If ALL the usb ports have stopped working, this is a problem with the USB controller. The short answer is that you cannot easily repair this. In all probability, the controller, or a circuit trace to it has blown or shorted. You would need to get another motherboard.

If one is still working, then you can get a PCIMCIA card to usb port that will give you 2-4 extra ports, but this will only work if at east one of your existing usb ports is still functioning

To resolve the problem, Start the Help and Support Center service and set it to Automatic. Follow these steps:
  • Click Start, Run and type Services.msc
  • Double-click Help and Support
  • Set the Startup type to Automatic
  • Start the Service
If the Help and Support service is missing in the Services.msc listing, this may be due to accidental deletion of a registry key. Download helpsvc.zip file and unzip the contents. Extract helpsvc.reg to the Desktop and double-click to merge the contents to the registry. This restores the Help and Support service entry.

Based on your keyboard layout, you don't need a key combination to capture your screen. Just press the "Print Scrn" button and your screen image will be copied to your clipboard. Now if you have pressed the "Print Scrn" key, go to MS Paint or any other image processing programs and "paste" it there.

Notice that your "Print Scrn" key is printed on top of the keyboard key and in white color. That means that it is the default key when pressed so there is no need to combine with Fn or shift. But if it is printed in blue or orange (your Fn key should be in blue or orange also) that is the time you need a key combination.

t s64nds 352e the number lock is on. To remove it look for a key with 'Num Lock' on and press it. You may need to press the function (Fn or Func - depending on which laptop you have). The key is usually located at the top right hand side of the keyboard.

Windows XP at this point is very buggy due to lack of support
Try to access your unit in safe mode and see if it works
when powering on press constantly F8 then select safe mode
if you are able to get in - try to save your information
if unable to get in and still getting a blue screen it could be either a system failure or hardware failure

These error codes lead me to believe the video card that is on the motherboard has called it to quits. You could investigate how much a logic board for this would be, I found ebay to be a good source. This is not one of those quick fixes it will need to be taken apart. Should you worry about cost, I would be shopping for a new laptop

when the computer is turned off, the AC adapter charges a completely discharged battery to 80 percent in about 1 hour and to 100 percent in approximately 2 hours. Charge time is longer with the computer turned on. You can leave the battery in the computer for as long as you like. The battery's internal circuitry prevents the battery from overcharging. So About 2 to 3 hrs

When you connect the computer to an electrical outlet or install a battery while the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the computer checks the battery charge and temperature. If necessary, the AC adapter then charges the battery and maintains the battery charge.
If the battery is hot from being used in your computer or being in a hot environment, the battery may not charge when you connect the computer to an electrical outlet.

The Latitude D610 does not have a wireless button.

Dell Latitude... | Answered on Jun 22, 2014

First, try and boot into safe mode by powering off your computer then powering it back on and tapping the f8 key, after that you should see safe mode and other options below it, click the first option which is safe mode, then go into your start menu and go to your system restore which in Windows 7 and Vista is located in accessories and then system tools, then choose a restore point earlier than the date you are on. This is a temporary fix and you will need to get a virus removal done asap. Hope this helps.
