Question about Dell Latitude C600 Notebook
Using avast to clean several times. kept getting memory virus -- need to reboot. finally not even able to 'setup with f2. device in the system modular bay cannot be identified on white screen. shuts after about 2 min. win xp unverified os hdd worked fine multiple boots never removed does dell have key combo that forces setup?
I think it was a case of a slide-in cd drive not fully making contact that must have caused the white screen. I have cleaned the laptop and am returning it to my friend. It had an unverified version of winxp, and I am recommending that they pay for a legit os if they intend to continue to use it. It has only a 10g hdd so it might be better to get a bigger one and upgrade the unit. They will probably just use stick drives for data.
Thanks for your useful site. I have other issues with computers I get in the trash while trying to salvage them. I am setting up a learning center at an area nursing home and getting residents into learning how to use computers since they have a lot of time to learn, if they will.
