Question about Dell Inspiron 2600 Notebook
I am using this notebook for power point presentations but now that I have my presentations on a flash drive, my old notebook won't open them. I get an error message that the notebook "cannot open high speed devices" or something to that effect. Before I purchase a used replacement, how can I tell if the new device has what I need-- 2 TB of storage? Thanks.

On the underneath side of the notebook there should be two screws that are usually labeled with a picture of a drum. Remove tham and the drive should slide out. Remove the drive from the tray you slid out and reverse procedure to re-install.

Your new hard drive needs to be an ATA which is the same as IDE. 160gb drives run ~$60 on ebay.
The best way to install it is through an internal 2nd drive (fastest) or an external usb drive. I use Casper to do a mirror drive back up from the C drive to the new drive. After that you just need to install the new drive in your drive caddy and you are ready to go, the new drive is an exact copy but bigger. Casper is also an ideal back up utility, if your C drive packs up you always have a bootable spare ready.The first backup can take several hour depending on your second drive connection and following backups need to do only the last changes, usually a few minutes.

-check the system battery information and charger information of the computer; restart the computer, while the computer is booting up, press F2 repeatedly; check "battery info"
-if it stated ac adapter = unknown device ; update the BIOS (-visit support.dell.com
NOTE:other computers may have different BIOS, if it is not the same you may have to consult manufacturer
-click on drivers and downloads
-click or choose by service tag
-download the BIOS and install it on the computer)
-check information after updating; if same message AC adapter = unknown device; call manufaturer for a replacement AC adapter, if status has changed it is a battery problem or motherboard, contact manufacturer to test battery

0F00:065D is a hard drive read test failure. the hard drive is failing. If purchased in Feb, the system should be under warranty call Dell Tech Support to get a replacement hard drive. (800-624-9896 in USA)
If out of warranty you can get a 2.5 in SATA HDD at Newegg.com for about $60

that error actually refers to a hard drive issue/failure. You may attempt a reformat and reinstall, but if it fails, you can proceed to get a new hard disk. You can get in touch with Dell for warranty replacement if applicable, or order a new hard drive. You may then decide either to get the same capacity or upgrade to a higher capacity drive.
