Title: Dell Inspiron 600m
Post by: Gundyman on March 29, 2007, 06:24:12 PM
Laptop unable to boot up. I looked at Dell community forum.  Most likely that replacing MB will resolve the problem, but the MB cost est $200 on ebay.  It might not guarantee work.  Many users report that only work for 6 months, then it stop again.

Shall I go for a new laptop or repair it?

I still need to order the kit to retrieve my data from HD.  

Perfect laptop for the past three yrs, nothing wrong with it at all.  


Title: You dont really ...

You dont really give much info on what its doing, are you sure it memory ?  Why not take it into a Dell agent, and let them try a second hand memory module just to make sure.

You also mention getting a "Kit" to get ur data back, as a suggestion why not get an external usb housing (2.5") and put the drive in there, or a 2.5" to 3.5" conversion bracket, so you can attach it to a "normal" pc, both options should be cheaper than Memory if ur gonna replace the unit anyway.

Personally never liked Dell, but in SA the backup support sucks, but I believe in the US they are quite good.

Anyway, just some random thoughts :-)
