    Dell D 600 Cursor locked can not do anything - even after power is turned off and on

    Try booting up after installing an external USB mouse. This may give you a mouse to install new keyboard drivers. If the problem is the keyboard/tracking pad, (hardware) installing another keyboard may eliminate the issue.

    Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....

    The memory appears to be the right kind.

    Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

    Installing memory in dell lattitude c400

    I have one of these myself, love it. The other memory chip is under the keyboard. Remove the plastic strip that has the power button on it, and you'll see the four screws holding the keyboard. Once you get the keyboard off you'll see the other memory chip.

    Installing Memory


    Yes, you can replace/upgrate the memory module under the keyboard.

    Before you proceed, note that Dell Inspiron 2650 uses DDR200 3.3V SODIMM modules. Also, memory module capacities supported are 128MB and 256MB with a Maximum memory of 512MB. If the current memory installed is 128MB, you need to order 2x 256MB modules to replace/upgrade both memory slots. If the installed capacity is 256MB, you just need another 256MB for the slot underneath the laptop.

    Check "Removing the Keyboard" for guide removing the keyboard to access the 2nd memory slot.

    Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before committing to the above procedure.

    Let me know how you get on.
