I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!


Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as we call it at work anyways.

Dels are known for this.

let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.


Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?

You will need one.

What you do is,

1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,

2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.

3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.

4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Press " R" for repair.

It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.

5: Once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "

6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finish and go back to C:/


Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.

you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.

Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.


WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.

For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.

Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.

What you did was re-installed those windows files.


Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.

This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.

You can help others now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)


Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

Good Luck.

Ok, go into the bios (press F2 on boot) then you can change the boot order to the hard drive, save the settings and exit the bios, the computer will reboot and should load up the OS

Whenever I start my dell latitude d600 it says " No boot able devices- strike F1 to retry boot, F2 to setup utility". what should i do? please help.


It is telling you it cannot see the hard drive anymore. The drive has probably died. you really have only two options replace the hard drive or replace the whole laptop. Hopefully you had your data backed up. Sorry for the bad news, but good luck.

You can either press F8 repeatedly at boot or the Delete key for setup to change the boot drive to cd with the Windows cd. F12 will get you a one time boot option as well. Steve

Dell Latitude D600 won't go past the Dell startup screen


Tap the f7 or f8 key, when you turn it on, it should go into safe mode, Go into start programs, accesories, tools, and restore, select restore, select a date closest to today and let it go through the restore pocess, if it suceeds and starts up, rub a good virus program right away, it sounds like you picked up a virus or trojen, just be patient and it shoul be ok, if it won't go into safe mode, let me know, that will require more work. And before you do anything, unplug, remove the battery for a few minutes and replace, try it and if it still won't run, do the above, thanks ,GYM
