You need to go to the Dell Website and make sure you have all the latest updates for that computer and get the all the drivers just in case you need reinstall your OS. Burn in to a cd or usb for use later.
Here is the link.

Now you need to get a good anti virus protection that is FREE and I use it personally. Go to www.avast.com and get the Free home edition. It is free for 14 months. All you have to do is register it. Sounds like your OS may be corrupt. I would also recommend to download ccleaner.com it corrects a lot of issues with XP. After you download it run it until there are no more errors reported and you should be okay until you can get your system reloaded.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

Administrator password


There are a couple of good programs that will reboot your administrator password. Look at www.majorgeeks.com and see about a shareware. Don't forget to give that seller appropriate feedback or contact ebay themselves they are pretty uptight about customer service nowadays.

D600 latitude motherboard


I recommend Ebay. You can get a good used motherboard for around $100, just make sure that the motherboard is guaranteed to work, so your protected if it doesn't. I've gotten many used boards off Ebay, and had no problems. Used or refurbished is just fine, there's really no sense in paying the $400 for a new one. If the $150 refurbished has at least one year warranty or better, that would be the route to go. Here's a link to Ebay's listing for the D600 motherboards. If you need assistance in changing out the board let me know.

KEYBOARD HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN!!!!


I have had this same problem before and it happened after I spilled tea (with sugar), on my keyboard. It may be that the prior owner spilled something on the keyboard. This can be fixed by ordering a new keyboard (the plastic circuit board), that fits underneath the actual keyboard. They can be purchased through Dell or Ebay and take about 10 minutes to install.

DELL Latitute D600 internet colors display wrong


The problem may be with your browser settings. Try the 'tools' menu on the right of your browser. The privacy or security may be set too high, or the 'browse history' settings, you may have to change things.
