Hi, I have a dell D630 laptop, after replacing the motherboard, when I power it on, it runs a few seconds and shuts down, It doesn't appear to be hot. The fan spins nicely. I have changed the cpu, ram and even removed the wireless card, modem and disconnected the cmos battery and nothing seems to help, any ideas. Thanks in advance.

Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Press and hold the power button for no less than 30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and AC adapter and try again.

Hi :) 

I own a laptop repair company...

A D630 is a VERY old lappy...

Let me guess... when you say you replaced the motherboard, you DIDNT use a NEW one... you put in an old second hand one ???

What makes you think that one works ???

All the best Brett :)

Hi :) 

From whom did you get the refurb board ? and just out of interest what did it cost ?

By the way, a motherboard CANNOT be refurbished...it either works (in which case its second hand) or its new (and you wont find a new 630 board for sale anywhere)

All the best Brett :)
