You can try resating the leyboard once. If the issue is not resolved , then its better to replace the keyboard , otherwise it may lead to motherboard damage.

Dell inspirion 6000 is showing "loading PBR2.....done. NTLDR IS MISSING.HOW TO FIX


Use the Restoration Disk. When asked choose Repair.
(Non-Destructive Installation)

You are missing basic Windows files. Boot loader files.
Also you may have to prepare to replace the harddrive. May have bad Sectors on it.
Means I would copy off all personal information, after getting that laptop going again, or you may lose it.

I have a used Dell Inspirion 6000, it wasn't running very good because of viruses etc. I tried cleaning it and finally my daughter put her windows vista on it for me. Now everything seems to work good...


you need the audio driver to make the audio device work...unfortuneitly dell never made vista drivers for that model so your out of luck BUT you can give the windows xp version a shot, i advise if you do decide to do that BACK UP & CREATE RESTORE POINT! here is the drivers download list its the sigmatel-driver under the audio section download the file labeled in blue. run the file follow instructions. you will be prompted to restart so save your work before hand...audio drivers are usually pretty compatable with operating systems they aren't built for. and for future reference you should always have your drivers downloaded before upgrading or re-installing your windows operating system. for this particular reason. best of luck and have a good day. oh and here's Dell Inspirion 6000 downloads page

I have a inspirion 6000 it says cant find hard


You may have a bios setting to check, it also may be damage on the connector or on the actual south bridge from over heating. I would load up into the bios and see if your drive is being detected and has the proper settings, try a default bios setting and see if that helps.

Dell Laptop needs to be serviced


What exactly is wrong with it? In my experience Best Buy does not do the job right in all cases. I fix computers as a second job, and have seen some pretty sh***y work from them. Take to a computer place they may do a better but thats just how I feel. Ultimately its still your decision.
