Question about Dell Latitude C600 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell laptop hard drive.

I am replacing a hard drive on a Dell Latitude C600 laptop.
The adapter on the old dell drive has a plug (blank) in one of the hdd pin holes because a pin is missing as the new drive has all the pins in place...thus...the adapter will not slide on because of the adapter plug. How do you remove the plug from the adapter? I just don;t want to damage anything trying to force it off.
It resembles the plug on an ide cable or floppy cable for a PC.
Thanks

    The drive I am putting in was taken from an Acer Aspire. It does have all the pins. I thought I could just shove something in the adapter and push the plug out...but...not sure.

    Thanks for the comment tho Syclar. I'll keep trying.

I have never seen a 2.5" drive without the missing pin. It is there to ensure the drive is not connected upside down. I think I would return the new drive if all pins are there. If I couldn't return it then I would think about cutting the unwanted pin after very careful counting.

Yes you can do it. But if any Operating system is install in old HDD then that will be not work on your new Laptop. Otherwise you can get all data and information from your old HDD.

Dell latitude c600 is not reading the hard drive . what should i do?


Most likely you will need a new hard drive installed. Hard drives come blank, so you will need an OS installed on it as well if you get the new hard drive.

Dell c 600 will no charge the battery


try load defaults on bios by goin F2 on dell splash screen. if still no go, remove battery and leave adapter plugged in. if no power while adapter only plugged in, replace adapter, if has power while adapter plugged in, replace motherboard( since you already replaced the old battery).
