    If you could paste the picture of what you are seeing on the screen when you say 4% and 6 % I would be able to decode the same better. If the windows defender says that the system is clean than it a good news.

You should be able to go to the Dell website
and register your laptop, even though you are not the original owner. From there the site will guide you through the scanning and repair process. You may have to wipe the hard drive and start with a clean setup, so backup any of your data on another form of media.
I had to do this on a dinosaur of a laptop when I had to replace my daughter's backup system. It is not fun, however, a better choice than using it for target practice.

I hope this helps, good luck!

I have lost my users manual to my Dell Latitude 610 laptop. Is there a place where i can download one for free

Here's the site (Dell official website) [Click Here] where you can download all documents related to your Dell Latitude D600. And here's another (Click Here to download service manuals).

Most of the documents are html files, only few of them are Pdf file format. You can read them in your browser or you can download them on your computer.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Dell Latitude D600 is crashed when it tries to start up it will have a blue screen that says SYSYEMROOTSYSTEM32CONFIGDEFAULT. WHAT DO I DO?

You will need to run the OS installation disc and try to repair the installation. If it does not have an installation disc then the harddrive may have a built-in recovery system to bring your laptop back to working order. When you first boot up the computer watch the screen for instructions on what button to push for system setup or recovery. It might be F10 or F12. I would try to boot into safemode before the recovery so you can back-up any files you have that you do not want to lose.

Low disk space

sounds like the additional memory is not recognized, but the low disk space refers to your hard drive. Either delete some files and defrag or upgrade your hard drive.
