Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

1 Answer

DEll Latitude c610 laptop computer

I checked the system and it is only listing XP home edition. When I tried to install XP the first time it asked for a verification of Window operating system. I have Win 98 program. I used that then it asked for XP and that worked for installation. This has a 20G hard drive. Is that to small for XP. I've seen other laptops advertised that have 20G with XP pro and Office. Why is there no room left on the laptop. Did it still hang onto the previous Lenox system somewhere or did it not load right? I tried disk clean up and there is nothing to clean up but the restore is non functional and I can't load anything else.

Put in the windows 2000 or xp disk
98 is not supported by microsoft , youll have many problems online
but you need to format the hard drive , 20 gb is good
with the windows xp cd boot from it
you will see just one letter drive if more delete them and format just one drive, you can use the quick format , so the windows xp files will go on after that, but youll have 30 day trial

You should try to know what is wrong and especialy if your 2.5" hard drive is, then download and burn an operating system with other computer and use it to instal new.

2) Or take the laptop to the nearest authorized Dell repair shop; your ID, proof of purchase of laptop, and a credit card. Dell representative will ask Dell for a Master Password. Dell rep will then reset to NO password, or one you want. Dell rep KEEPS master password.

Removing CMOS Battery (Real Time Clock Battery. Also called Coin-Cell battery), will NOT work.

Dell Latitude keyboard issue


It is the direct access button, it (originally) is to run Dell utilities installed on the system. Generally it is ignored by most users. In theory it can be reprogrammed in Control Panel, Keyboard Properties, Direct Access Tab

Clean XP Pro installed -- now NIC disappeared!


Well once you did a clean install over all of Dell drivers etc etc. You wiped out the restore artion that was on the computer. You have to go to Dells website and under the support tab look for the Nic card that you have inside the computer.

My Dell C610 won't reconize the second stick of 256 mb memory


As the computer boots, it detects the additional memory and automatically updates the system configuration information
where did you get the memory?
If it is in properly and does't work,it is either bad or the wrong part number for your Dell C610
