While you're in there, don't forget to test the switch that shuts off the LCD when the lid's closed.

I took the thing mostly apart to re-seat all the connections that I could get to (display, keyboard, wireless card, etc.) and blow out any dust from the air holes. I put it back together and all seems well but still not quite right.. I don't hear the fan and I put a twist tie into the shroud just enough to see if the fan was moving and it's not moving at all. I'm thinking now about removing the keyboard and seeing if I can re-seat the connector for the fan. I'll do that later tonight or tomorrow night and then reload Windows again.
.... Just confirmed the fan is not spinning. Took keyboard out and reconnected the fan. Before reconnecting the keyboard I put the battery back in and tried to boot the system. The fan give a small jerk but will not spin up. Anyone know where I can get a replacement fan for this unit?

I'm reloading Windows again to see how it does. I'll keep you posted...

I would not run a D610 series for long without a dual-fan cooling pad. This series from Dell operate at ridiculous high temperature. I am using an Inspiron 1525 at the moment that does not suffer from a heat problem.

I even loaded Windows 7 as a dual boot on it and that is running as well as the XP. I think a cooling pad would be a good idea. Too bad I didn't get the refurbed Targus kit from Woot last week or the week before, had a 2 fan cooling pad, wireless USB optical mouse, 4-Port USB hub and a couple other items.
