    Dell D600 have over time a common fault of switching off as soon as you switch them on. I take it you get the hard drive light flashing very fast for a second or two? The cure for this is too press very ******* the bottom of the laptop just near the docking port directly underneath the on switch. Then press the on button. Its a connection fault between the button board and the motherboard. Hope this helps.

Black window keeps popping up on my computer. It's quick and I cannot read it. It happens every 15 to 20 seconds. Any suggestions? It is a dell inspiron lap top. It has been going on for about a week

  • Start -> Run -> cmd.exe
  • Then type the following "net stop messenger" after which you'll see "messenger service is stopping".
To start it again for any reason open the command prompt again (Start -> Run -> cmd.exe) and type "net start messenger"
Now you can be assured that your world will become silent. No more pop-up black screens.

I am connected to a wireless server but the lap top will not connect to the internet

Does it have Internet connected to the wireless server? If not, you will see a yellow exclamation point within the wireless icon (assuming you are running Windows XP, Vista or 7).

Is it a public access point? Sometimes (Mc Donalds is an example) you will be redirected to their access page when you open up Internet Explorer.

Hopes this helps,

Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously when the Dell splash screen appears. The "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."

Lap top dell inspiron 6400, cant get into windows,

Have you tried doing a winXP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Dell Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If the repair does not fix it :

If you have documents you need,you would have to set the hard drive in an enclosure and copy the files over. Then you can run the Dell recovery disk . This will set it up as when it came from Dell.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
