OK, the big question is #1 do you have the interposer board from the old drive attached to the new one? The interposer is an adapter that covers the pins on the HDD and converts them to a sliding spade type contact to better allow insertion/removal of the HDD.

On a warranty replacement drive, the interposer normally comes on the new drive. On one from EBAY, not sure. If the HDD has 2 rows of exposed pins then it doesn't have an interposer attached. If it has a small adapter protruding say 1/4 inch and it has a row of contacts top and bottom, the interposer is on the drive.

If the interposer is on the drive, the drive may be bad. If it is not, remove the one from the old drive and attach it to this one.

FIND THE AGE OF LAPTOP


The D600 line was introduced in 2004. The only accurate way to find the exact age of your laptop, or the PRODUCTION DATE is to contact Dell. Otherwise you would only be able to find out the general date which was the 2004-2005 years. After that they moved on to the D6X0 lines...D630, etc as the processors improved. Some more info on your unit
Latitude D600
The D600 (and simultaneously-introduced D800) was Dell's first business-oriented notebook based on the Pentium-M processor; it used the first-generation "Banias" Pentium M chips running on a 400 MT/s FSB on DDR memory. It had a PATA hard drive and a D-series modular bay, and used an ATI GPU Radeon 9000. It had a 14" screen, in regular (non-widescreen) form factor. Unlike later D6x0 series machines, both memory sockets were accessible from a single cover on the bottom of the system.
Many Latitude models had a near-clone Inspiron, in the case of the D600, it was the Inspiron 600M. Differences include that the 600M does not work with the Dell D-Dock, and the case styling is slightly different. The motherboards, screens and hard drive caddies are all physically interchangeable

How to find the part number of HDD 20 GB of Latitude D600?


Dell is very good at supplying part numbers on their home page. One of the ways to find it is do a yahoo search for dell latitude d600 parts.. This should bring you lots of info on d600. From there you can find a Dell parts supplier. here is a link from the search I did: http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=category&id=140&subid=117&refine=hard drive

Please note. You wont find a Dell hard drive. They use Western Digital and other brands. Most any hard drive brand will work.

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.

The ActivCard is a security ket that looks like a simple flash drive, and allows only the person who has it to use the computer.  Either contact the person who you got the computer from, and ask them if they have it,  or you will need to completely erase the hard drive, and reinstall the opperating system manually.

Dell latitude d600 not booting/blank screen


well what you have on your computer is the computer does not find your hard drive where you have the operative system thats why is asking you to boot from cd because the computer wants to instal a operative system may be your hard drive is damage ok lets do a test turn on your computer by presing the power botton and then press the key to boot on bios page can be (delete ,F1, F10 ) any of those every time you try to do the boot up if does not go to bios you have repit the same operation so when you get bios system display on you computer look for the hard drive and the boot order if there is no hard drive so your hard drive is damege and you have to reolace for a good one and instal the operative system
