Q: Solved: Dell Latitude D620 not connecting to wifi, but connecting at home

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude D620 with a Dell Wireless WLAN. I connect to my wireless connection at home fine, but any time I take my computer to a wifi hotpsot, it cannot connect. I SEE that there is a network there, I click "connect" to that network, and my computer doesn't do anything. My Wireless is set to obtain IP addresses automatically, so that is not the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might try to fix this??

Thanks!

I have a Dell Latitude D620 (1490 WLAN mini-card) running Windows XP SP2 that refuses to connect to my Westell (Verizon DSL/Wireless router combo) router.

Some details:
1. My network is secured by WEP 128bit and both SSID hide and MAC address filtering is turned ON. HOWEVER, when I did turn off all filtering and WEP, the Dell found the network and listed it in Wireless connections but still did not connect when I tried connecting to the unsecured network. (The HP connects in the unsecured case as well).
2. I have another HP Pavilion laptop that I am able to connect to this network. I compared all wireless network settings and couldn't find any differences between them (other than the network cards are different between the two laptops).
3. I did uninstall and reinstall the 1490 from device manager - no effect.
4. I did update the driver for the 1490 router - no effect.
5. I tried turning Windows firewall off - no effect.
6. I do know that the wireless card on the Dell works since it connects to my network at work.
Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks

I have a Dell Latitude D620 and have all the drivers installed, but for some reason my wireless adapter isn't seeing my wireless connection I have here at the house. I am running Windows XP Home. I'm at a loss of what it could be. Any advice would help.

A:[SOLVED] Wireless Netowrk not working on Dell Laptop; Latitude D620

Has this laptop ever connected at home?

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL and press enter.


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

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?

Hi!
I have a Latitude E6530 running Windows 7 with updated with all drivers just a few days ago and this problem still persists:
When I connect a USB device to any of the super speed ports, the CPU usage goes up. Looking in the task manager, I can see that the items Interrupts and System are both consuming ~10 CPU. As this is a multi core machine, this essentially means that 100% of 2 threads are completely blocked.
This problem started a few years back when I did a complete driver update (I had a replacement BT card that didn't work and I thought that updating the drivers would help, unfortunately the BT card was broken and the update gave me broken USB drivers instead :(
If I hibernate the computer, the problem goes away after it wakes up again, but as soon as I connect a USB device to any of the USB3 ports, the problem comes back.
Any thoughts on what this is and what I can do to fix it?
Best regards,
Stefan Burstrom

Hi.
I have the same problem on a Dell Latitude E6530 from this post : en.community.dell.com/.../20013042
(I cannot answer in the original post, the forum gives me an error).
I use Windows 10 Pro 64 bits (1703).The BIOS is up to date : version A20 (05/08/2017).
When I plug ou unplug a device on the USB 3.0 ports (right or left port), the System process goes up to ~15% CPU usage. I have to sleep/resume or reboot to have a normal CPU usage.The CPU usage is taken by the ACPI.sys (found with Windows Performance Recorder).
This problem does not happen with USB 2.0 (rear port) or E-SATA port on right.

Try power cycling your modem, and router. if the modem and router are a all in one unit, unplug the power cord from it, wait about one minute then plug power back in, wait for the lights to stabilize, then try to connect.

If your Modem / Router are separate, then remove power from both, power up the modem, wait for lights to stabilize, then power up the router, and wait for the lights to stabilize. If this doesn't work, then follow these instructions, and post the results - Pre-posting Requirements - for both Wired and Wireless Connectivity Issues

Call your Help Desk. My wife's does that, until she goes in and disable the Proxy in Internet Properties in Control Panel. Just remember to turn back on.

The first time she brought it home, because they replaced her older unit. IT had made a Fat Finger mistake in the VPN connection.

So when she tried to get on our home WiFi, it did the same as yours. Plus her work a GPO, to restrict her from using any LAN or WiFi connection, but the company's.

Or could there be another reason why the new dell laptop won't connect to wifi. I have followed all troubleshooting instructions but nothing is working.

My Dell Latitude D620 latop has had problems with the touchpad/blue nobby (not sure what they call that). The click buttons don't work either. I used to be able to just restart my laptop, but the problem seems to continue.

I had this problem at one point, and I reformatted with success. But it just started again.

The only settings I have changed were the settings for power (turning off monitor/hdd etc). I have tried installing fresh drivers from dell, old drivers, enabling/disabling the touchpad in the BIOS, and I've given up and now just using a USB wireless mouse.

When I put in the little Dell Resource CD, it doesn't even say that I have the hardware. Also, when I navigate to the Device Manager, there isn't a 'Mice and other pointing devices' tree. Finally, when I startup the laptop, go to Control Panel>Mouse>Hardware, it shows all the information as blank.

Any ideas? I would appreciate it.

No. Only a version from Dell will work with his product key. And the one found by Jelly Bean is the wrong one - it is used on all Dell machines of that model and won't reinstall from the Dell disk.

I've been through 2 lcds and 3 ribbons nothing seems to help. the computer boots just fine the problem is with the screen the computer starts but there is a... I dont wanna call it lines but i think its what they are, you can only tell the difference in small areas like the outline of the mouse, or the letters in the menu, overall it looks like it has a bad resolution. but i know that's not it. I've run w7 and multiple linux distros to make sure it isn't it. The bios as updated and I'm sure is not a driver issue it also happens when I'm in the boos menu. I have a dell d630 so every time I've gotten a bad lcd I cross check it with the 630 and so far i've gotten 3 bad lcds from people on ebay. Not to my surprised I've gotten my money back and now the guy even offered to test one and ship me one that works. I received it, but I'm still experiencing the same problem. I've tried 3 different lcd ribbons and nothing what should i do next? I've tried the image in an external monitor and it's just fine. the only problem is with an lcd.

My parents have a Dell Latitude D620 and it's about 5 or 6 years old. We use Windows XP on it. The other day my younger brother downloaded a Lego Software that turned out to be some sort of virus. So I disinstalled the Lego software for control panel hoping it would solve the problem. But my mother has McAfee and she tried to install AVG and it said she had to unistall the McAfee but she needs the password from her administrator first.

Right now the computer will work, but after you've been on the internet for about five minutes or gone to about 3 or 4 different pages it will stop working.
Is there a way we can fix this problem without downloading AVG (and how?) or do we have to wait for the administrator's password to come in?

Hi all, great forum you have here...
 
I have an old(ish) Dell Latitude D620 and I'd like to upgrade the CPU.  The specs are as follows:

Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 (1.66GHz) CPU
2GB DDR2-800 RAM
60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD
Windows 7 Professional

Am I correct in thinking I can upgrade to any 667Mhz-FSB processor?  SO what would be the fastest processor I can fit (I'm thinking Core 2 Duo 7400 or 7600)?
Looking at the compatible products for the Intel 845GM chipset (http://ark.intel.com/products/chipsets/22816) they do, but I thought I'd better check here first before buying.  Would the change from 2MB L2 cache to 4MB affect anything?
 
Many thanks!

In addition, when I click on the screen and, for instance, begin to type, the cursor will randomly move to where the pointer is. As you can imagine, this is very frustrating. Your help is most appreciated.

Thank you,

Tim

There's a driver for the touchpads... make sure it's not disabled from startup under msconfig.

A:Dell Latitude D620 BIOS Password

Short answer: You need the original password.
That unit has been refurbished by a Dell-authorized shop (as all with the 595B are) so the restore discs cannot be used.
All of the suggestions your tried, are known not to work in that model... The D600 and D620 are the most difficult of all Dells to fix. You will likely need to replace the motherboard with one known to work. Most of the boards on eBay have the same problems you have.

I have an old Dell Latitude D620 with 1.83 GHz CPU, 2 GB of RAM, and 80 GB HDD, and is a 32-bit system. It currently has Windows XP preinstalled on it.I want to upgrade it to a more recent version of Windows, so I have two options, one is the latest Windows 10 (Build 1607) 32-bit and the other is Windows 7 (32-bit).So, can you help me in deciding which is better for the D620? Which version should I install on it for best possible performance?

A:Which version of Windows is better to use on the Dell Latitude D620?

Probably windows 7 as windows 10 is not supported.  It may work just fine but who knows.

Hello !
I got some troubles with my Dell Latitude D620. WLAN and LAN never worked on this laptop. It's kinda old, about 4-5 years old. It runs Windows XP Professional and I can't connect to my router. My company IT department gave me this laptop with some kind of special software for connecting to Wi-Fi (some Intel program; not driver). All my drivers are installed.
Windows does not recognize any Wi-Fi network. The program detects networks, but it won't let me introduce the passwords. I wrote the password in Notepad and copy-pasted it but it didn't wanted to connect.
Please help me, tell me which drivers should I install or what should I do.
Sorry for bad english.

Hello, good folks,

I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop that I notice freezes up when it gets really hot. Tonight I held it in front of my window air conditioner unit to cool it down and suddenly it worked like a charm. So I wonder if anyone's got any suggestions as to what to do about this. I've seen these laptop desks at stores like Target that have fans in them and I was wondering if they are worth looking into. Do they work? Does anybody have one and have a critique of it, good or bad?

I'm not so sure that the CPU fan is working if I have to hold the computer up to the window AC unit to cool it down enough to get it to work. There's got to be a better way to keep this thing running at optimal temperatures so that it doesn't keep freezing up on me.

I'm all ears for suggestions here. Thanks, folks, you all are most sincerely appreciated!

A:My Dell Latitude D620 laptop gets hot and freezes up

My first guess would be theres a problem with the fan and its going to need replaced.obviously its not supposed to get that hot where you have to put it near an a/c to cool it off.it would be easier and cheaper just to replace the fan then get a desk with a fan.

My Dell Latitude D620 laptop decided to blue screen on me while I was doing some work in Excel. However when I reboot it makes it to the Black screen showing Windows XP loading and I get the following blue screen:

"UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"

Technical Information:

***STOP: 0X000000ED (0X86B83E30, 0X0000006, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

I try booting into safe mode and all other configurations and get this same message.

-----------

I Google the issue and see I probably just need to the chkdsk /r thing. I change the boot order to my CD in setup and put in my Windows XP cd. I click to boot from cd and it begins to enter Windows setup.

Windows setup takes about a minute to go through all of the files it normally loads. However, as soon as it gets to "Setup is Starting Windows" I get a new blue screen that has the following information on it:

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF76130BF, 0XF7A5F208, 0XF7A5EF08)

*** pci.sys - Address F76130BF base at F760C000, DateStamp 3b7d855c

------------

So I can't get into the repair function which means I can't do anything at this point. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
