On start up, everything is optional, unless problems come up.
On services, don't play around with them if you don't know what they are or do, don't adjust services from msconfig. adjust services from

start -> run -> services.msc

Unfortunately the error that you getting means that there is a problem with the hard drive. So you will need to replace the drive in the system. Note the D620 uses a SATA drive.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I have a dell latitude c400, if left for a while

Check to see what your power functions (in the control panel) are set to--it might be set to turn off or sleep after a certain amount of time (but this does not sound like the problem). I am thinking it is more of a heat problem--as that is what usually caused freezing. The thing is, if it is a heat problem, then you would experience the freezing while working.

At this time, because we really do not know what is happening, I would clean out the dust by blowing it out through the vent holes.
Now look in the control panel and see what your settings are for power. If you are running Windows Vista, turn off the hibernation mode.

Run the msconfig command from the "Run" menu item. Uncheck any programs that do not need to be running (leave your antivirus programs and things like that checked) Now try it out.

Changing cpu performance

Update the BIOS and the chipset from the manufacturer.

Uninstall the unnecessary softwares from the system.

Clear temorary files and folders.

Try to do a disk defragmenter on the hard drive.

If your system has low RAM (256/512 MB) then it is advisable to increase the RAM to 1 GB / 2 GB.

Have very few startup programs (to change the startup programs Go to Run -> msconfig -> Startup.

Hope this helps.

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,
