Re: Dell Latitude D830-Shutdown wacthing video on youtube

Hi

Running XP pro SP3

have the same proble of laptop shutting down when using SKYPE with a logitech pro notebook camera.
No other shutdown issues.
Fresh install of windows does not seem to fix it.

Could it be a dsiplay driver conflict with Logitech camera or skype?

Anybody seen the same

Right Click my computer-->Properties-->Advanced-->Startup and Recovery-->Settings-->(untick) Automatically Restart-->OK
This will not fix the problem but will give you an error message and chance to debug.

Re: Dell Latitude D830-Shutdown wacthing video on youtube

I have had this very same thing happen for the past 5-6 months. It's VERY annoying. Not only is my battery shot (9-cell that only lasts an hour), but this occurs when I have the audio on a video up past the halfway mark.

I also have the NVidia 140 chip instead of the Intel graphics. Worst upgrade I've ever done.........

Just an update. I have reinstalled the Video and Sound drivers straight from the D830 drivers page for Vista 32-bit. Am still having the issue.

I will be getting a new battery shortly and will update as to whether this fixes the issue or not.

Just put in a new battery. Laptop lasts a lot longer and BIOS sees battery as fine.

Problem is this still occurs. I have a tech coming out to replace the motherboard on Monday. We'll see if that fixes things...

Re: Dell Latitude D830-Shutdown watching video on youtube

Resurrecting an old thread (don't blame me, blame google )

But hey, I have the exact same system and the exact same problem:

hard shutdowns when using youtube, skype video calls, or playing flash-based browser games.

Latest driver installed from Nvidia.com (released in Dec. '09). Tried with three different OS's (Vista 32, 32-bit Linux, and 64-bit Linux). Fan is fully operational, and there are no obstructions to the cooling system. Thermal monitors indicate that the temp is not a problem, so I don't think that is it anyway.

Anyone ever resolve this issue? Dell is sending out a replacement mobo (for the second time!).

Did you checked the battery lock tab, they are engaged or not?. Actually power is being jump between even if you are using the house power applied through the charger. So the PC got shut down with the spike that are connected through it. Most probably this is the thing that are happening with you

Not sure what the lock tab is. But this occurs both when on battery power, and when on AC with the battery removed.

Edit: oh, and have run the Dell diagnostic tool from CD. It took like two hours of scanning every little piece of hardware in this box - and gave it a clean bill of health.
