Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Upgrade Notebook hard drive capacity

I have a Dell Latitude D610 with a 80 Gig hard drive. I see you have a 250 Gig hard drive, SKU 8699492. Will that plug into the same position in my hard drive and will my computer recognize its larger capacity so I can upgrade?

Please send answer to Dan@eeclink.com

Thanks,

Dan

Hi there,
you Dell Latitude D610 can support large hard drives from 100gigs up to 250gigs ... but i very much think this is the limitation of your system bios if u are looking to go higer ... u might need to upgrade your system bios.....

I replace 250 gig to 500 gig. can it affect the processor, hard disk drive and other parts of my laptop?


No it won't BUT the BIOS may not support a 500 Gb hard disk, it will see it as a smaller capacity hard drive.

I have a latitude D600 and I am now getting the 'disk read error' after installing a new larger than 137 GB hard drive. I know (now) I need to upgrade the BIOS to see the larger hard drive, bu


Unless Dell has the upgrade for the bios to include the larger hardware you are going to be in trouble, I would go online to Dell and check for upgrades to your model if they still support it. The other option is contact customer and technical support to see it they can give you a alternative solution.

Error code 2000-0146 do i need new hard drive if so what is the replacement hard drive for a dell inspiron 1525 notebook pc thx


that error actually refers to a hard drive issue/failure. You may attempt a reformat and reinstall, but if it fails, you can proceed to get a new hard disk. You can get in touch with Dell for warranty replacement if applicable, or order a new hard drive. You may then decide either to get the same capacity or upgrade to a higher capacity drive.

Can i install windows xp on my dell latitude d510 if i can't get it to boot up


1.No
The hard drive has to be a cleaned and functional drive in order for any operating system to be installed.
2. Your laptop seems to have issues with power but I am speculating here.
Please provide more information as to what you are having an issue with.
a. hard drive capacity
b. how old is the PC and the hard drive device
c.Does the screen go to the splash ( that is the logo of the manufacturer?
d.Do you have a known good battery and recharger
I hope this helps. Have a good day!

I have a inspiron 6000 what kind of hard drive do i need?


From what i have read it is an IDE hard drive and any size shouls work. I would take drive out to be sure and stick to a 120 GIG or 160 GIG. That way it should be recognized without having to do a complicated bios flash. Good Luck

I want to put a 250 gig hard drive in a dell d600 but the bios a16 dont support that much what do i flash the bios with I know they do it as for they are for sale all over ebay with 250 gig.


Dell D600 have EIDE interface not SATA.

If you found EIDE or PATA interface for D600 with 250GB....when you install it divide the partition into 2.(100GB for windows sytem) and the rest will be your second drive.
