Re: Inspiron 600M -ocassional boot problem

Please find below the installation instructions from the link I previously gave.

1. Double-click the new icon (labeled CZ125700.EXE) on the desktop.

2. The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\CZ125700.EXE. Write down this path so the executable (Example - Setup.exe) file can be found later.

3. The Self-Extractor window appears.

4. Click OK.

5. After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor window is still open, close it.

6. Click the Start button and then click Run.

7. Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\CZ125700.EXE in the Open textbox and then click OK.

8. Follow the on-screen installation instructions.

Did you get to the on-screen installation instructions mentioned in step 8?

Re: Inspiron 600M -ocassional boot problem

i thought I would go over what I did exactly again yesterday.  Hopefully this will shine a light on my computer ignorance. Thanks again.

1.  clicked on Sofu's link

2. downloaded 32 bit diagnostics / saved it to desktop

3. I was prompted to extract files to C:\Dell\Drivers\R100688\

4. clicked ok - files unzipped

5. closed window

6. went to start / run - typed in C:\Dell\Drivers\R100688\     in the dialog box....clicked OK

7.  It then took me to the a bunch of files listed with a .mdm suffix that were located in the R100688 folder

This is where I'm at to this point.....hopefully I can be guided from here...thanks again Karl
