Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Just bought a new 120G HD for my Dell Latitude D600. The following error message comes up every time I turn it on: MEMORY ADDRESS LINE FAILURE AT 28000000 READ 00000000 EXPECTING FFFFFFFF DECREASING AVAILABLE MEMORY STRIKE THE F1 KEY TO CONTINUE, F2 TO RUN SETUP UTILITY. So I hit F1 and it works fine. Is decreasing available memory going to cause a problem?

While the "memory loss" won't cause a major problem, you will be annoyed by the repeated message. A couple of things may be causing this. One, Windows changed the virtual memory size. This is an area on your hard drive that the computer uses to store stuff when the on board ram isn't large enough to handel it. the other thing that may be happening is you have a memory module going bad. You must remember that the hard drive size has nothing to do with the memory size. That is, your ram memory is what handles most of the processing of information. Your hard drive is just a storage place. Like a file cabinet in your office.

If this information was helpful, please rate it high. Thanks

UNABLE TO BOOT DELL D600 - FAILURE TO DETECT HARD DISK


If you press F12 during bootup, you should get the boot menu. Run the hard disk diagnostic. If the hard disk is bad, you will get a DST Short Test Error code.

Replacing the hard disk in a D600 is a piece of cake though so if you need a new HD, it's easy to do. The tedious work will come afterward.

Thanks for your initial efforts , ref dell latitude d600 laptop.


Well there is certainly a RAM related problem. You have to open your RAM Module, Clean its golden coloured edges and reinsert it properly. Then start your laptop to see if it changes anything. If everything remains same then you have to replace your RAM.
Be very carefull if you open your RAM. Consult your Manual first.

The flickering may not be caused by a corrupt driver, it could be the impending failure of the fluorescent back light of the display or its high voltage supply.

Trying driver replacement though is the first thing to try.
If the original driver is corrupt, you can try the following;

- Right-click on My Computer
- Left-click on Properties
- Click on Hardware tab
- Click on Device Manager
- Locate and open Display Adaptors
- Locate the video listing for your
- Highlight and delete this
- Reboot the computer

If Windows does what it should (no guarantee on this!), it will 'find' a 'new device' and install the driver for it.
