I formated my Dell latitude D600 and installed windows vista. As a result, the wireless lan stopped working. I have tried running different drivers to re-instal the wireless yet it has refused to...


Dell does not provide Vista drivers for the D600 because it is too old.
(See: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&catid=-1&impid=-1)

I see two options:
Purchase an add-on Vista-compatible wireless adapter (USB or PCMICIA).
Go back to XP. It will run better than Visa on the D600.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Power Jack Repair Advice Needed


Hi,
The repair really isn't too complicated most times. hardest part is usually removing the old one. I haven't looked up that specific model, they all are different but all the same. Some are placed on a separate small board. some are soldered to the main board. If your considering purchasing replacement board anyways, I would try and fix it and then if that doesn't work exercise your other options.
Thank you,
Lee

Hey,

Test your charger, the battery light blinking and the computer not starting up indicates not enough power to start up or not pluged into ac power, check the power adapter or charger. I suspect the battery is fine.
