Need to upgrade graphics card for dell latitude D800.Also need a bigger hard drive 200 GB or more.Have only 40 GB now with Windows Vista taking up most of it!

In this laptop the video card is a special format one, it can't be replaced with any other one because no other one in the same format was ever made. But you can always put a larger hard disk - as large as you want and you can afford to buy. Just make sure it's a PATA one - like this one.

Hi, Dell D800 won't start up.

Can you F7 or F8 or whatever your system uses to get into the bios setup screen? If you can accesss that, you can install an operating system. If not, you have an issue. Put an operating system CD in to see if it is recognized for starters.

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write

Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.

How can I get to my hard drive ?

Underneath the computer there should be a sign of hard drive. Remove what ever screws you need too and put the new hard drive. It could be a sign with three circles.

Dell Latitude D800 Boot Problem

Did the diagnostics pass the RAM and the hard drive.
You should check the BIOS settings to see if the hard disk is detected, if possible reset the BIOS back to the default settings and see if the computer boots up.
If not :-
Then it appears that the operating system is either corrupted or system files were deleted or infected with viruses.
Your only option is to do a operating system repair or a complete new install of Windows.
I recommend you do a new install.

Hi my name is jorge

You have to partition it and then you need a boot disk and then you need to load the operating system once that is done and before you get on the net you need to do your service packs
