Question about Computers & Internet
Yes, Dell computers are notorious for shipping systems with a minimum of cooling and power, particularly on their desktop systems. That's why I do not recommend them any longer
But this doesn't help you, so I will try to. First, disk drives are easy to replace by yourself if you are the least bit mechanical, and you can usually find a manual that will help you. This is an on-line version that Dell provides:
The biggest problem with installing a new disk is getting your operating system, programs, and data on to the new disk from your old one, but we'll have to leave that subject for another time. You might want to consider buying an external hard drive that matches or exceeds the size of your current drive to expedite this process, and then you can use it for backing up your data after your new drive is installed.
Second, the price of the drive will depend on the capacity of your current drive and whether you want to increase it. Currently, a replacement 40GB drive for your D600 will run you about $100.
To increase the cooling for your notebook, I would recommend a cooling pad like these that have fans inside of them and are powered by the USB ports of your laptop. Cost is about $20-25.
Hope the above info helps! If so, I would appreciate you leaving feedback.

The price for a notebook hard drive really depends on the size that you will purchase. You can search for prices using the google product link. Just type in notebook hard drive. Its pretty easy to install yourselft so dont worry its just a matter of opening a few screws. You will need an IDE notebook hard drive by the way. Although you cannot put in a new or extra fan on the laptop itselft you can buy one of those laptop coolers. The ones that you can put under the laptop.
