How to restore to factory settings latitude D600


the d600 has a 8 pins chip,like the c600 where the pasword/faxtory
setting is stored..
it's located under the tape where the pcicma socket is..close to edge of the board
it sais:UPW1
I think you can use the paperclip methode like the c600
wich means short two pins ( 3& 6) while you power the lap

Led power & hard disk led on for few sec,no display,switch off


can you please be more specific?

i had a c640 with the same issue..
the cause was a power short to the cpu..
wich meant the cpu didn't get power..
the metal base under the board gave the board to much presure
the metal base was bent
as soon as i took of the fan he started normal..
so what uou can do:
take the fan off , and try to power up..
just a few seconds..

also the cdrom or flop can cause a short, maybe you can try that first..take them out and power up

I am afraid Dell did no plan Windows XP for Latitude C600 thus Dell has not made released certified drivers.

Generally, Windows XP SP2 should have most of the drivers built in. Reply if you have device(s) which lack drivers and I will get you the drivers at best effort.

Also, try Windows 2000 drivers. Normally it should work

Dell Latitude C510/610 wont turn on

I have more of a suspicion of the CPU fan than the hard drive, right now. If a hard drive goes bad, the system will wake up, go through it's POST (Power On Self Test), and then tell you there's an issue with the hard drive. If the CPU fan goes bad, the system turns on, sees an RPM of 0 on the fan, then turns back off. That hypothesis also fits in with the slowness you were seeing. If a CPU starts to overheat (because the fan isn't running well), it will start to throttle the clock speed down in an attempt to produce less heat.
Unfortunately, it sounds like your laptop may be in need of a professional repair facility.
