there goes another Dell Latitude D630


I always asked myself when this particular notebook will fail. Almost everybody I know who got this notebook got his mainboard replaced in the last year. Now it seems that it’s time for my Latitude to get a new set of chips.

It crashed while I was using it and since that it only boots up like this:

Oh I looked up which graphic chip that actually is. It’s a NVidia NVS135 chip – not like I thought the NVS160 which is embedded in my current generation latitude. Thank god I got 3 year repair and replacement….

    have the same problem on my Dell D630 laptop. Is motherboard replacement really necessary?

      well depends… they tried the cooler-replacement which did not work, so they replaced the mainboard… which did the trick.

    trying to find mainbord replacement. Do you know is motherboard for Dell Latitude D630 Part# R872J compatible with Part# PN302. Both have Nvidia GPU.

    thanks for the answer.
