This means the bios is loading from the new hard drive that doesn't have the os installed yet. Go to the bios and make sure it is booting from the cd drive first. This should fix the problem and let you boot from the windows xp cd and install the os to your new hard drive.

"error loading operating system"


Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.

My Dell C600 won't recognize the 2 new 256 mb sticks of RAM


i think you need a same brand of 256 for it to work? and when you buy something for your computer make sure that the one you both is the same brand or code with your 128 for example you have 128 ddr2 sdram so you can only upgrade it with 256 ddr sdran or 512mb,1gb,2gb ddr sdram.

Dell Latitude D600 with boot-up error message


You operating system is corrupted meaning that your harddrive has failed or you got a bad virus. Only fix is having the operating system reinstalled and mostly likely that data is lost. Sorry to have to break the news to you and hope that you can get this resolved.

When I turn on my dell c600 laptop, it stays on for about 1 minute then a blue screen appears with a bios error message. How do i fix this?


From the minimal description you provided, it sounds like 1 of two things. Either OS problem/virus/spyware or bad hardware. Try to write down the message generated when the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) appears and google it.

To scan for bad hardware (sounds like it might be a bad hard drive), use the tool Hiren's Boot Disk 9.4. Replace the bad part and then update the system/reinstall windows (if it's the hard drive)
Good luck
