Dell does not provide Vista drivers for the D600 because it is too old.
(See: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&catid=-1&impid=-1)

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.

What is the problem of latitude D600 in window 7 operating system


Hello, The only problem I foresee will be finding drivers after completing your installation. This D600 was never supported with Vista and I so doubt windows 7 will be officially supported.

Still, you should be able to find missing drivers from Microsoft using windows update or from the component manufacturer.

Should you decide to install, you might find this site useful:

Go to www.dell.com and look for the DRIVER DOWNLOAD (or similar name) and put in your service tag number (on the bottom of the computer). Once you do that, you should be able to find your Network Interface Card (NIC) and download it. Of course, you will need to do this on another computer and transfer the download to either a flash drive or CD writable disk. Once that is done, you can load it onto your laptop. There may be several NIC's to choose from but use the recommended one for your service tag number.
One drawback may be that NIC will not be supported on VISTA. If you have done all this, you may have to roll back to Windows XP. One problem with Dell Computers is that they don't take kindly to VISTA unless the computer was designed exclusively for VISTA. I have an E1705 that I tried to upgrade to VISTA and it was a disaster! I had to roll back to XP.

Yes, LAN is different from the Wireless network.

Chances are, the driver for the ethernet card is not yet loaded or somehow got corrupted.

What you can do is to get the install disc or acquire the correct ethernet driver from Dell's support website. Install it into your PC and then let us know if you need further assistance.

MY DRIVERS D600


The Dell Latitude D600 only came with one type of sound card. This is the Sigmatel. The drivers you need are for the STAC 9750 AC97. You can find them here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Click on the "plus" sign next to Audio and then click on the right hand side where it says, "Download Now."

These are only for Windows 2000/XP. If you upgraded to Vista, Vista should have the drivers built in. If they don't install, more than likely the soundcard is not compatible with Vista.

Best of luck.

There is no availabe network driver for this Latitude d600 found on the dell support website that will work for vista. Most probably this computer is not configured to work with vista.
