That is a good question, the only option is contact Dell to see if you can purchase a recovery disc for that model, other than that the window XP will need to be installed in a computer shop plus the drivers to get around this.

Why does my dell seems too slow to open something ? i have reinstalled my dell with window xp

1) When you re-installed XP did you delete the old partition containing windows then re-install on a new partition?

Two operating systems on you laptop will slow things down and fill the hard drive with unnecessary data.

2) Judging by the details you give, its a fairly old machine and needs a bit of an upgrade.

More ram ;-

These two web sites are reputable and will give you all the info you need, ram is specific so you need to get the right type and the right amount.

Larger - Faster Hard drive.

Yours will have and IDE interface go for the biggest and fastest laptop drive (5200rpm) you can afford.

Then re-install windows.

I formated my Dell latitude D600 and installed windows vista. As a result, the wireless lan stopped working. I have tried running different drivers to re-instal the wireless yet it has refused to...

Dell does not provide Vista drivers for the D600 because it is too old.

I see two options:
Purchase an add-on Vista-compatible wireless adapter (USB or PCMICIA).
Go back to XP. It will run better than Visa on the D600.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Ive just bought a differnt Dell D600 which I had one that got zapped by electric surge.Question can I copy the programs on to an external drive then re-install them on the new hard drive for the laptop?...

If both of the computers are Dell D600, chances are that you can just swap the internal disks. You'll then find all of your programs, data, emails, as if you never got a surge at all. Only thing, you'll need to swap the Windows adhesive with the product key too, or keep both. Also, this will likely void your Dell warranty unless done by a Dell approved technician.

Another thing that can be done and won't void anything (except the Windows license, for which you'll need the sticker swapping trick) is to fit the dead computer's disk into an external USB case, then use a tool such as Linux Forensics or UBCD to dump the external disk onto the internal D600 disk. This has better be done by a data recovery expert: you run no risk of losing the old data, but you do run the risk of erasing the new D600 without being able to get it to boot again (until reformatted).

Also possible (but even more complicated), voiding neither Dell nor Windows licenses, is to dock the old disk in an USB case and "bring it alive" with VMware P2V. You'll get a old-PC-within-the-new-PC which will probably run slow as molasses, BUT will support virtual-USBing and the "Files and Setting Data Transfer Wizard" which is supplied on both XP and Vista. It will take some time but you can get most programs transferred. Many others will be transferrable with utilities such as Move Me:

Purchased latitude d600 from sale how can I install my windows xp

Press F12 as you boot up the Dell and select the CD as the alternate boot device, insert the Windows installation CD in the CD drive and continue.
If you can't select the CD as the alternate boot device then go into the BIOS configuration then the Boot order and select the CD as the first boot device, save and exit. You can change it back after Windows is installed if you wish.

Dell Lattiude D600 cursor locked in middle of screen - even after we turn on and off - no way to do anything because cursor won't move - not even little blue mouse in the middle of the screen

Try booting up after installing an external USB mouse. This may give you a mouse to install new keyboard drivers.
If the problem is the keyboard/tracking pad, (hardware) installing another keyboard may eliminate the issue.

Infrared or bluetooth on latitude d600 not working

first of all, did the first solution provider acutally believe that a good dell latitude d600 would be made by such a horrible company as compaq? thats insulting. Secondly, Dell doesn't seem to provide drivers, and i have yet to remember wher i got them in the past. In the mean time, next time you reboot the computer, press F2 to enter the BIOS setup. Press F2 untill you see a page mentioning something about either Infrared, IR, or IrDA. Make sure it is set to enabled. If you are lucky, windows will see it and attempt to download the drivers. Being i am running the Windows 7 Beta, i have yet to convince windows to do that. Good Luck
