Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

Windows XP Pro logon issue

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

Hello,

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,

Chris

SOURCE: My windows xp wont boot on my dell latitude d600.

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.

Hi Roger,

The Windows command you used to uninstall the USB port is correct. If they all work bar one, then i think its safe to say it's possibly a hardware issue.

The only other fix i can think of is to update the BIOS with the latest version from the Dell support website.



Good luck.

OS - windows home edition to windows XP - upgrade?


Home Edition is already a version of XP. XP was released in Home and Professional versions. You can find out for sure what version of software you have by right-clicking on the desktop icon for "My Computer" (or on the "My Computer" entry on the Start Menu if the icon is not on your desktop), then clicking on "Properties" from the popup menu.

If you want to upgrade from XP Home to XP Professional, you can do that with the appropriate upgrade CD. But unless you are networking in an office setting, there really are no features in Pro that you don't have in Home.

If you still have questions, please post a follow up comment and I will try to help further.

Nasty XP Home To XP Pro Upgrade Problem


you should have the porduct key on the side of the computer if it is a desktop ot on the botton of the laptop.

Win95,98 ME yes, you can see it in the registry.
Windows Xp and up, you need some kind of software to decode the number in the registry.
it calls magic jellybeam keyfinder. this will ge the ket and decode it. how you going to get it on the machine is another story.
you may be able to use the software by hitting F8 just before the Windows logon come on, select safe mode and go from there.
