Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
It seems to go through the bios setup, then comes up to a white and black screen that has 3 choices
it says "the device in the system modular bay cannot be identified. it
may not be completely inserted or may have some other problem. follow
the steps below,
1 make sure device is fully closed
2 press esc key wait for system to power down
3 press power button to retry detecting the device
well none of that stuff works, and then it just shuts down, i have nothing in any bay.
is the bios messed up, is the mobo bad? thanks in advanced! john
The modular bay refers to the optical drive (CD drive). There is a small screw holding it, I've had machines at my shop that this screw fallen out and the drive wasn't making a good connection. Be sure that the drive hasn't slid out a bit. Take it out clean the connection and put it back, making sure it's seated properly. Try this, then let me know, and we'll go from there.

Turn on your laptop and look at the first screen that comes up as soon as it is on. This screen will tell you "Press x key to enter setup", replacing "x" with the actual BIOS access key. It's usually "Del" or "F2" on Toshiba systems.
Press the key firmly and quickly before the screen goes away. If you do not react quickly enough, you will miss the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS. On Toshiba systems, this window of opportunity is somewhere between two to five seconds.
Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."
As the first boot device, select "USB," or "USB HDD." If you have a "USB ZIP" option, you might be able to boot from it, so select that if you have no other choice.
Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.
