Question about Dell (6T980-A01) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

I've got a Dell D600 Latitude laptop with a 6T980 CD drive. When I put the drive in the bay, it just keeps flashing the green light. If I re-start the computer, it asks me to make sure the drive is fully inserted, push Escape and try again. I did this to no avail. Any ideas?

    Can you attach it via a USB cable? If so, does it identify it then?

The promlem is the drive itself making proper contact,make sure the contacts on the back of the drive are not loose and free of dust.look inside as well if you have compress air try cleaning the contacts.Try again If no go you might want to try another drive.
Good luck

I have a Dell Latitude D600 struggling to boot


I had the same problem as you with two of these D600's. I'm pretty sure it's not a RAM issue, more likely a problem with the motherboard. I reckon it's time for you to get a new one .. i did!

Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing


Go to support.dell.com and download the latest bios firmware to update it. If it still does not work then most likely it is already a hardware issue so you need to contact dell support for the hardware issue.

The ActivCard is a security ket that looks like a simple flash drive, and allows only the person who has it to use the computer.  Either contact the person who you got the computer from, and ask them if they have it,  or you will need to completely erase the hard drive, and reinstall the opperating system manually.
