SOURCE: My Dell Latitude D600 keeps freezing after about

Could be a couple of things.

Its usually an indication of a fault on the hard drive but in most cases it can be fixed and cleared.

If you get a copy of

UBCD may be your best option. Set your laptop to boot from them and run the chkdsk utility from there on your hard drive to see if that can fix the errors. UBCD also has some other hard disk checking utils.

There is also a copy of chkdsk on a proper copy of windows xp so if you have one and can boot from that then you can also check out the hard-disk from there.

You may find that you end up with come "bad blocks" too many of these indicate a failing drive. If so you should consider replacement while you still have the ability to clone your old drive onto a newer (larger) one. laptop drives are at about their cheapest right now and it would be a good opportunity to upgrade it.

It is not difficult to do.

Just the odd few could mean the laptop took a small bump while being used and it quite feasible that you could continue using it for a long time

Also get a can of compressed air for cleaning computers and clean out the laptop (do not stick the nozzle inside and make sure the unit is off first) overheating can also cause a very similar problem.

If you get los of dust and gunk out of here consider a laptop coolong pad with preferably 3 fans

SOURCE: i have dell laptop latitude c400. Ican't reinstall

This laptop will not give you an option to boot from a usb device or even from an external cd rom/dvd. You need to do a network install only for this particular model DEll c400. It is a long process and requires some skill of setting up a RIS server. You will also need a switch or hub to connect your laptop to it. Once your server is setup with dns, dhcp and ris you need to do a network boot and install the os. Get in touch with a professional to do it if your not familiar with this. I tried calling dell as i had a similar issue and they couldnt help me over the phone so they sent over a technician. Technician tried in vbain including removing my hdd and installing the os on his laptop and then putting the hard drive back into mine. It still didnt work. I then researched the net and figured out the only way to do it was via a remote installation.

Slow laptop, canot upgrade

It cannot be upgraded farther by hardware. You should be able to run xp there. Any lower requirement linux distro is also fine if you like.

Laptops are now-a-days not too costly. May also think about a new one.

Dell l400 problem

1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.
