Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

Loss of Video after XP Boot

I had to replace my D600 hard drive thus reloaded XP-Pro then network drivers to get to Dell website and grab latest drivers. Upon reboot all is fine until XP get to the point it would display desk top then screen goes black. All is okay in safe mode. Tried different revisions of the ATI Radeon 9000 driver without success. Just tried the Omega drivers which came up okay in low res but replicated problem as soon as I readjusted to hi-res. Only thing I notice in comparing with another, operating D600 is this one lacks any Monitor listings under the Device Manager but I can find no drivers to install... I'm lost!

Ahah..go to the video codes, uninstall them, and then do a hardware change scan from top of panel, see if the computer bios will 'see' the video then.

you can borrow a copy of xp pro from someone and when it asks for the product key, put the one on the bottom of your computer. then use someones computer to download the wireless network driver or regular network driver so you can get the computer on the internet and then just download the rest of the drivers and youre set. i have a couple d600's and have done this a lot of times on mine and my friends. if you wanna talk more about this, let me know your email so we can communicate like that. i just noticed your initials. my first two are JJ as well!!

Dell d600 freezes intermittantly


sounds like the hard disk drive is slow to spin up. Sometimes older drives don't get all the way up to speed at boot, then with repeated restarts, the drive warms a bit and the spindle friction drops allowing full speed on the drive.
Try running HDD Diags the 1st boot of the day Fn +power button, see if you get any diag failure. Generally, a drive has to be within 3% of rated drive RPM (5400 or 7200) to function

NO BOOT SECTOR ON HARD DRIVE


Afraid you are going to have to get ahold of a copy of the Dell operating system. Once you get that loaded, you can go to www.dell.com to download/install all of the device drivers.

You can actually use any retail operating system version, does not have to be dell. It is only that the dell copy is less expensive. You might try getting that on Craigs List or Ebay.

Good Luck

Dell Latitude D600 with new Hitachi 30GB Drive Not Recognizing


XP install is not detecting any hard disk.
No jumpers are required for laptops, can only have one hard drive in a laptop.
Check the BIOS for the hard disk configuration, make sure that it is set on Auto (detect).
You may have a faulty hard disk, you can check it by booting up with a floppy DOS boot disk, run fdisk to see if it detects the hard disk, OR connect this hard drive to a USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port and if it detects it as an external drive the it is OK.

Laptop not booting


Was this a reload of XP, if so what was the cause for the reload? This sounds like the hard drive may have failed. I've had them where the reload seems to take , then it either won't boot or will have issues running properly. This is caused by one or two bad sectors in the drive. The drive has many sectors, depending on the size. First try reinstalling XP, if it has any problems during or after the install, then it's the hard drive. If this wasn't a reload or it's a new hard drive let me know and we'll take a different approach.

Error code 1000-0146


The hard drive has failed. You need a new 2.5" IDE laptop hard drive which are only about $60-$120 depending on capacity. You will then need to reload Windows XP and all your programs. Hopefully you have the dell "resource cd" which has drivers on it as well and an XP install CD.

I would get a hard drive from www.newegg.com they have reasonable prices. Just make sure NOT to get a SATA drive.
Let us know if you need any more help.
