Your hard drive may need reseating.
If it still gives error hard disk not found then you have a faulty hard drive.
You need a new hard drive and then install Windows Vista

I have a latitude D600 and I am now getting the 'disk read error' after installing a new larger than 137 GB hard drive. I know (now) I need to upgrade the BIOS to see the larger hard drive, bu

Unless Dell has the upgrade for the bios to include the larger hardware you are going to be in trouble, I would go online to Dell and check for upgrades to your model if they still support it. The other option is contact customer and technical support to see it they can give you a alternative solution.

How to find the part number of HDD 20 GB of Latitude D600?

Dell is very good at supplying part numbers on their home page. One of the ways to find it is do a yahoo search for dell latitude d600 parts.. This should bring you lots of info on d600. From there you can find a Dell parts supplier. here is a link from the search I did: http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=category&id=140&subid=117&refine=hard drive

Please note. You wont find a Dell hard drive. They use Western Digital and other brands. Most any hard drive brand will work.

MY DRIVERS D600

The Dell Latitude D600 only came with one type of sound card. This is the Sigmatel. The drivers you need are for the STAC 9750 AC97. You can find them here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Click on the "plus" sign next to Audio and then click on the right hand side where it says, "Download Now."

These are only for Windows 2000/XP. If you upgraded to Vista, Vista should have the drivers built in. If they don't install, more than likely the soundcard is not compatible with Vista.

Best of luck.

I want to put a 250 gig hard drive in a dell d600 but the bios a16 dont support that much what do i flash the bios with I know they do it as for they are for sale all over ebay with 250 gig.

Dell D600 have EIDE interface not SATA.

If you found EIDE or PATA interface for D600 with 250GB....when you install it divide the partition into 2.(100GB for windows sytem) and the rest will be your second drive.

Ethernet controller friver

There is no availabe network driver for this Latitude d600 found on the dell support website that will work for vista. Most probably this computer is not configured to work with vista.

Call Dell Technical support for answers.

Just re installed windows xp on new hard drive, built-in speakers no longer functioning

Visit support.dell.com, click on drivers and downloads, and then click on the service tag option.... enter the service tag from the bottom side of the laptop... it will then display the list of drivers for that laptop.

 

Download and install the audio drivers and any other ones that you need.... let me know if that solves it for you. Make sure they are for your laptop model and operating system.

No 3d acceleration in Vista on ATI 7500

Well, I'm amazed a C640 runs Vista at all. There's no reason to buy a new hard drive, except for the novenlty of having one loaded with Vista on a C640. It's a great laptop, and runs Windows XP PRo perfectly well. If you have one od the Dell XP install disks, just boot from it, and whenever it finds the vista install, hit excape, then at the next screen hit "D" to delete the partition, then choose "quick format", and load the Operation system. If you need an install disk,let me know. Good luck
