Did you buy from an original dealer, because i still use the same laptop and 2 cds came along with a spare battery and a spare charger. 

But you can solve this problem, you just need to get hold of a  windows xp service pack 1 bootable cd.

Then insert the cd and boot through the cd.

for this you have to set boot priority number 1 to your dvd/cd drive,go to bios and under the boot settings set the priority as mentioned and then save and restart with this cd in the drive.

Now the system will boot through the cd, now in the main screen select repair option, this will repair all the missing and corrupt files.

Dell D600 cd rom replacement instructions


There should be a screw on the bottom holding the cd rom in place. Unscrew the screw and then with one end of a paper clip put it in the small hole on the front of the cd rom and the door should open. Now go ahead and pull the cd-rom out.

Now you can go ahead and put the new cd-rom in place and put the screw in and then turn on the laptop and let it boot up into windows and windows might redetect it. Go into my computer and you should see your cd-rom in there.

Not booting


There may be many issues, lets start with the most common one,
When the notebook is starting up press the button it states to "Enter Setup" (I mean BIOS). (May be F8 or DEL) {differnt for diffent machines}.
When entered, there find the Boot sequence under the boot ot boot order menu (This may also be different for diferent machines).

When found, there set the "First boot device to be "CD/DVD" not the IDE/HD/Hard Drive.

Not put the CD, it will boot hopefully.

If the problem prevails, or there is already CD as the 1st boot device.

Then don't hesitate to contact again, and also state the error you are getting when trying to boot.

It this was helpful, kindly do rate!
Always here to help!
Regards.

Purchased latitude d600 from sale how can I install my windows xp


Press F12 as you boot up the Dell and select the CD as the alternate boot device, insert the Windows installation CD in the CD drive and continue.
If you can't select the CD as the alternate boot device then go into the BIOS configuration then the Boot order and select the CD as the first boot device, save and exit. You can change it back after Windows is installed if you wish.

HOW TO INSTALL WINDOWS XP ON DELL LAPTOP


go into bios by pressing F2 - change the boot order so the cd / dvd drive is the first bootable device and use the installation / recovery disc you got with it and boot from the cd and re install or install windows xp.

If you do not have the cd then you either need to find it or contact dell and see if they have another one with a key ( which may be chargeable )

HOW CAN I FIX MY COMPUTER? ITS READING UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME?


You need your Windows XP cd for this fix.

Boot from the Windows XP CD and at the first prompt, press "r" for repair. Press 1 when asked to choose windows installation and then enter the admnistrator password. If you don;t have one, just press "enter" and it should show you "c:\windows>"

At this prompt, type the following

chkdsk /r

THis should take quite sometime but will fix the problem at the end. when you get the c:\windows prompt again, type the word "exit" and your system will reboot and load windows XP normally

Dell "Drivers and Utilities" CD


Hi, the "No Diagnostic Utility Partition Found" is returned because your laptop does not find the recovery partition on C drive.
Easiest way to create partition is with dell recovery cd. You can buy CDs from dell, buy finding contact on web site or buy from one of the following.
Dell Restore Disk: XP Pro SP2 for ... $35.00 - DIMOSOL - Digital ...
Dell Latitude D600 XP System Recovery CD ... $18.95 - recovery-cds.com ...
Dell Latitude D600 Vista System Recovery ... $18.95 - recovery-cds.com ...




Buy recovery cd according to windows version on sticker at the back of your laptop.
With recovery CD you wont need drivers.

Alternative solution is downloading drivers posted by Maanita after installing Windows from a generic Windows setup CD.
