    Gee...thanks for assuming I am so stupid I hadn't already done this as well as a number of other obvious likely fixes.

    Useless answer, buddy.

Celestia534 - i share your sentiments. have you looked into running regedit and taking out the upper and lowerlimit files. didn't work for me. i've tried fixing this damn thing for years and no luck. it happened after the driver was updated but either way, i think i'm finally going to buy a used one. yeah, sux. now that the laptop itself is only worth twice that much.
mine recognized in file explorer and makes it through the troubleshooting finely. but when i try to use it, "NO HAPS."if i try to update it or install it using a software from the web, "driver is not connected."
if you know how to fix this, let me know. my email will alert me you responded to this, i think. if not, i'll just get the used one. man, and i only need to use it long enough to install linux on it.

You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.

My Dell inspirion 2650 won't charge.


Try using a different power adapter. They sell for around $25 and up on the internet. Dell adapters burn out quite often.

I'm having some trouble with a dell poweredge 2650 I bought off eBay.


You are not too clear, however I'll take a guess ..

1) Booting from CD ... older CD drives fitted to PE26xx range do not recognize Windows 2003 bootable install CD's .. the TS-L462C (a laptop drive) should be compatible with the PE 2650 (I know it works in my 2600)

2) Installing the Operating System onto the PERC SCSI Array drives .. a total pain .. with older OS (Windows 2000) you can use the 4 x floppy disk set to install and hit (F6 ? as I recall) to tell it to 'load a 3rd party driver' ... get the PERC drivers from the Dell site.

Alternative = toss the useless Tape Drive and install a set of SATA drives in the same space (a 3 drive Hot Swap caddy eclosure will fit = Icy Box or StarTech) .. you will need a PCI RAID card (such as Si3124) since the M'Bd has nothing but a combined floppy/TapeDrive IDE interfafce.

3) Finally, be aware that this is a SERVER level box .. spare parts & Dell 'official' upgrades are going to cost you an arm & a leg = and don't even ask what the special 'ECC parity' Memory sticks cost :-)

Cant even READ DVD


the XP driver really should work appropriately. I might assume that the drive is damaged (which happens to me frequently with older DVD drives).
