The Latitude CP or CPi computer has three indicators on the display assembly’s indicator panel and three on the keyboard assembly. The following
subsections describe the functions of these indicators.
3RZHU,QGLFDWRU
The power indicator is a green LED. After the computer is turned on, the power
indicator lights up constantly to indicate that the computer is receiving stable
power. If the power indicator is off, the computer is either in suspend mode (or
standby mode for Windows 98), suspend-to-disk mode, or off.
'ULYH$FWLYLW\,QGLFDWRU
The drive activity indicator is a green LED. The indicator lights up when data is
being transferred to or from the hard-disk drive, or to or from a diskette drive,
CD-ROM drive, or other device installed in the modular bay.
%DWWHU\,QGLFDWRU
The battery indicator displays the following conditions:
‡ The indicator turns green while the AC adapter is fast-charging. During the
normal charging cycle, the indicator remains on without blinking. After the
battery is fully charged, the battery indicator blinks green to indicate that
the AC adapter is providing a maintenance (trickle) charge to keep the battery at full capacity.
1-4
Dell Latitude CP and CPi Service Manual
‡ The system supports two low-battery warning codes:
The first low-battery warning occurs when the main battery has 15 minutes
or less of charge remaining. The amber battery indicator blinks once per
second.
The second low-battery warning occurs when the main battery has 5 minutes or less of charge remaining. The amber battery indicator lights up
without blinking. If no user activity occurs within 15 seconds, the system
automatically enters suspend (or standby mode for Windows 98) or suspend-to-disk.
‡ Several error codes indicate temporary or fatal battery conditions. Refer to
“Battery Failure Codes” in Chapter 3 for a listing of these codes.
.H\ERDUG,QGLFDWRUV
‡ The keyboard controls the operation of the numbers lock (Num Lock) indicator, the capitals lock (Caps Lock) indicator, and the Scroll Lock indicator,
all of which are visible through openings at the top of the keyboard. These
indicators are associated with the <Num Lock> key, the <Caps Lock> key,
and the <Scroll Lock> key, respectively; when lit, the LEDs indicate the
active state of their respective keys. These indicators also blink to indicate
error codes. Refer to “POST Error Codes” in Chapter 3 for a listing of these
codes.
&RQWUROOLQJ&RPSXWHU3RZHU
Pressing the power button on the Latitude CP or CPi computer, C/Dock Expansion Station, or the C/Port APR initiates a change from the current power state
to a different state. The protocols for the power state changes are as follows:
‡ If the computer is off (power indicator is off) and the display is open, pressing the power button initiates a boot operation.
‡ If the computer is on (power indicator is on) and the display is open but off,
pressing the power button causes the display to turn on.
‡ If the computer is in suspend mode (or standby mode for Windows 98)
(power indicator is off), pressing the power button turns on the computer.
(A modem ring or system alarm event will also turn on the computer.)
‡ Pressing the power button for 4 seconds causes the computer to power
down.
‡ If the computer is in suspend mode (or standby mode for Windows 98)
(power indicator is off), the display is closed, and no external monitor is
attached, pressing the power button on the Latitude C/Port APR or C/Dock
Expansion Station has no effect on the power state. The computer remains
in suspend mode (or standby mode for Windows 98).
‡ If the computer is in suspend-to-disk mode and the display is open or an
external monitor is connected, pressing the power button causes the computer to initiate the resume-from-disk operation.

After you perform a visual inspection as described in the previous section, boot
the computer from a copy of the diagnostics diskette and, while the boot routine is running, observe the computer for any indications of problems.
NOTE: To prevent possible damage to the original Dell Diagnostics Diskette,
Dell recommends that users make copies of the diskette and always use a
backup copy when servicing a user’s computer. For instructions, see “Before
You Start Testing” in Chapter 4 of the Dell Latitude CP Reference and Troubleshooting Guide.

Initial Procedures
2-5
(OLPLQDWLQJ5HVRXUFH&RQIOLFWV
Devices within the computer may require dedicated memory spaces, interrupt
levels, or DMA channels, all of which must be allocated during installation of
the devices. Because devices may be installed at different times, it is possible
that the same resource is assigned to two or more devices.
Resource conflicts can result in disorderly or erratic computer operation or failure of the computer to operate at all. If you suspect that resource conflicts
might exist, check the computer and reassign the resources as necessary.
For more information about resolving conflicts, see Chapter 3, “Troubleshooting Your Computer,” in the Reference and Troubleshooting Guide.
*HWWLQJ+HOS
If none of the procedures in this chapter reveals the source of the problem or
leads to the proper troubleshooting steps for determining the source of the
problem, call Dell for technical assistance. For instructions, see Chapter 5,
“Getting Help,” in the Reference and Troubleshooting Guide.

This chapter describes system error messages that can occur during computer
startup or, in the case of some failures, during normal computer operation. The
tables in this chapter list POST error codes, battery failure codes, and system
error messages, as well as their probable causes.
If a faulty computer does not display a POST error code or system error message to indicate a failure, use the Dell Diagnostics to help isolate the source of
the problem. See “Running the Dell Diagnostics” found later in this chapter.
3267(UURU&RGHV
If the computer’s display cannot display error messages during the POST, the
numbers lock (Num Lock), the capitals lock (Caps Lock), and the Scroll Lock
indicators display codes that identify the problem or help you identify a faulty
component or assembly. The following table lists the error codes that may be
generated during POST. Most error codes indicate a fatal error that requires
replacement of the system board or other corrective actions before the computer can operate.
NOTE: To display an error code, all three system indicators flash simultaneously (not sequentially). These “flash” codes are the same as the audible
“beep” codes used by the Dell Latitude XPi portable computer, for instance.

Starting the diagnostics causes the Dell logo screen to appear, followed by a
message indicating that the diagnostics is loading. Before the diagnostics
loads, a program tests the portion of main memory (RAM) required for loading
the diagnostics. If a main memory error is detected, a message appears on the
screen telling you which memory address failed.
If no errors are found in main memory, the diagnostics loads and the Diagnostics Menu appears. This menu lets you choose the following options or exit to
the MS-DOS prompt:
‡ Run Quick Tests — Runs selected tests from all test groups to quickly

A magnet switch causes the computer to go into suspend mode when the
display is closed. Failure to install the correct magnet in the magnet holder
may prevent the computer from going into suspend mode. Begin by checking the back of the LCD panel for the manufacturer’s label, and then follow
the instructions for that manufacturer.
Sharp LCD Panel
Some revisions of the Sharp LCD panel have a magnetic frame and require
a single, large magnet, or two small magnets with no foam spacer, for the
magnet switch to operate properly. Other revisions of the Sharp LCD panel
have a nonmagnetic frame and require a single, small magnet with a foam
spacer. To identify the revision of the LCD you are working with, follow
these steps:
a. Remove the magnet from the magnet holder (see Figures 4-19 and
4-20), and place it against the replacement LCD panel frame.
b. If the magnet sticks, the LCD panel has a magnetic frame. Place a single, large magnet, or 2 small magnets with no foam spacer, in the
magnet holder.
c. If the magnet does not stick, the LCD panel has a nonmagnetic frame.
Place a single, small magnet and a foam spacer in the magnet holder,
as shown in Figure 4-20. Place the magnet to the left of the foam
spacer, assuming you are facing the display as shown in
Figure 4-19.
