Hi there , this does happen with laptop hard drives they will not spin up or detect its just where & tear , the d600 has been around for a couple of years now , most of the time i just buy a faulty laptop just for the ram & hard drive if you need a cheap option this is better just check the specs on the auction before you bid to get a good size hard drive & format it before you use it .

Dell latitude d600 setup screen


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Ya sounds like the hard drive has died or there is a interface problem since you suffered from water damage. you may be able to get data off the hard drive by using a external hard drive connector but it may or may not work.

MY DELL LATITUDE D600 WONT LOAD WINDOWS AT ALL :( HELP


The computer is telling you is that the hard drive isn't being detected. This could be due to a poor connection from the drive to the motherboard, hard drive failure, or even something that's gone wrong on the motherboard.

In the BIOS setup (the F2 option), check to see if the drive is listed on the screen where you can check connected devices. If the hard drive doesn't show up, you'll probably want to replace it. The good news is that it's very simple to get to the drive, and you easily find replacements from several online vendors (Tiger Direct, Newegg, and so on) or possibly even at large retailers. Here is a link to online documentation at Dell for this model. You can view or download the service manual which shows just what you need to do. (The hard drive access page is here.)

If you replace the drive you'll have to reload all your software, but you've already decided that's not a bad thing.

I but a dell d600 latitud 60 hdd and 512mb,using it up to a month pluse it was tell me 0 primary hard drive not.


I assume you meant "primary hard disk drive 0 not found"? Have you pressed F12 during bootup and run the HD diagnostics? If you can't run the diags and it does not show up in the BIOS, then you have a bad hard drive.

I've seen this error many, many times on D600s.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found


Hi Kenneth,

If you just bought the laptop, then it is still covered by a warranty. Then all you have to do is contact the seller or directly to dell. This is the fastest and most appropriate way, and usually you will get one-to-one replacement (they will replace your laptop with new one). But, please make sure by contacting Dell.

Regards,
