Since the virus has taken it's toll, the F11 built in restore won't work. You will have to acquire an operating system disc in order to fix your problem. Unfortunately, there is no other way around it.

The restore partition on the hard drive is no good .Therefore the best and easiest way to restore your system is to obtain a copy of the restore cd.You can call Dell tech support and inquire they will tell you the cost,or you can purchase a copy of XP and install it.You will also have to download the device drivers as well from the dell support website.
Good luck

Dell D600 cd rom replacement instructions


There should be a screw on the bottom holding the cd rom in place. Unscrew the screw and then with one end of a paper clip put it in the small hole on the front of the cd rom and the door should open. Now go ahead and pull the cd-rom out.

Now you can go ahead and put the new cd-rom in place and put the screw in and then turn on the laptop and let it boot up into windows and windows might redetect it. Go into my computer and you should see your cd-rom in there.

How do you reformat Latitude d600 xp


You will need to get hold of a xp bootable disk, change the primary boot to the cd/dvd-rom and run the disk.

If you cant get hold of a xp disk get Utorrent and torrent sites to get what you are looking for, it is a good download program to download disk images(iso's). Using your burning software burn yourself a copy, it'll allways come in handy.

There are about a dozen Dell drivers you'll need to load. If you can download these on another unit to a flash drive. Then install on your laptop. If you don't have another unit, take your flash drive to your nearest public libray. There you can download what you need to a flash drive.

Virus


Don't reformat it just yet. Tell us what OS you are using, and I can try to help.
I will assume you are using WIndows XP or Vista - what you can do, assuming you have kept your PC up-to-date, is try to run the inbuilt Microsoft anti-malware program.
Click Start, Run, type MRT and press Enter or click OK.
You should get the February 2009 version of the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Do a quick scan and see what comes up. If anything is found, reboot and repeat the process doing a full scan (can take several hours).
That should fix and remove the most common virus infections. Let me know how you get on.

If you still need to reformat, you need to use the Dell recovery CDs that came with your laptop. These were a blue recovery/drivers CD and a purple CD for Windows XP sp1 or a green CD for Windows XP sp2. Not sure about other versions of Windows. There is no magic button to reformat with Dell laptops.
