Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I recently purchased a Latitude D600 from a company going out of business for dirt cheap. When I got it home and tried to boot up I came to the logon screen which asked me for a password to get in. It had a mans name as the user who I am assuming is the former employee or owner. How do I wipe this out so we can use the computer? Thanks Lisa
There should be a product key on the bottom. As long as there is you can just download a copy of XP from digitalriver.com and use that key. Burn the iso file downloaded on to a disc and boot to the disc and follow the prompts to install XP.

SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue
What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed. If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time. The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution. the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)
You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.
To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything). You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.
If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.
I hope this helps someone.

did you try to check if the sound card or the sound driver of the laptop is installed, if not go to support.dell.com and install the latest driver of the laptop,put the service tag of the system and that is the 7 alpha numeric characters at the bottom of your system.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude D510 Screen Failed
The 14.1" inch screen is compatible with Latitude models D500, D505, D510, D600, D610 and Inspiron models 500m, 510m, 600m.
You may also need a screen inverter - in fact that is often the reason a screen is considered to be failing. The lcd inverter can be one of the most common items to become defective in a laptop computer. You may need a lcd inverter replacement if your screen is dim, dark, colored oddly, blinking, flickering or has dark stripes. Just something to keep in mind.
Hope this helps,

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:

Go into system BIOS and see if the computer is configured as it should be. If you computer BIOS settings are in the default mode, your BIOS battery may need to be replaced. Go to the BIOS and make all the settings as required. Then shut down the system completely and do a cold boot restart. See if the BIOS settings are still intact. Hope this helps.
