Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

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

I checked my RAM using the windows help centre , it informed me that my laptop has 512MB of RAM.
Then i pressed F2 to enter the seires setup and there it said my System memory was 464MB at 266MHz.
If it helps the exact message it says when i turn my laptop on is;

memory write/read failure at 1FFE000C read FF91FE11 expecting FE11FE11.
memory address line failure at 1FFE0000 read FE11FE11 expecting 01010101.
memory write/read failure at 1D00001C read 01EF00EF expecting 00EF00EF.
Decreasing available memory.
The amount of system memory has changed.
Strike the F1 key to continue , F2 to run the setup utility.

....oh , I checked the time/date in the setup utility and it was already correct.
Does any of this make sense to you ?
Really appreciate your time and help.

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.

D600 wont power up

Try removing the battery and boot on the power cord sometimes the battery shorts the system so it will not boot if it does boot then you need to replace the battery it could be the battery is dead and your power cord is bad check and make sure that is not the case if the power cord is good then I would look into replacing the mother board you can find a replacement on Ebay or at dell .if you have to replace it do a google search on hot to replace the mother board on a Dell latitude D600
and you will ba able to get step by step on how to disassemble it

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...

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

Dell latituded600 charger lcd off,

Ok... that makes a little more sense... Here is what i want you to check... Disconnect the AC Adapter from the system and plug it into the mains, check the LED light (Should be Green). Then plug in the connector to the laptop, check the LED. If the LED turns off when you connect the laptop. Your Laptop motherboard needs to be changed.

Can not start normaly and can not start in safe mode

On your Latitude D600, press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware. If no errors are detected, then you have a problem with your operating system software boot files. For more info go to this Microsoft website:
