Hey guys,

A while back I was having some trouble w/ my Inspiron 600m. I don't even remember what, but whatever it was got solved. While troubleshooting, however, I tried to update my BIOS, which is currently three versions and two years old. Downloaded the update from the Dell site. When I open it, I'm told I can't update because I have an "unsupported system." Apparently my computer believes its a Latitude D600. Ideas?

Cheers,
Becca

Everest claims it's a Latitude, the bootup screen claims it's a Latitude, everything but my original invoice and the label on the case say Latitude. I've included the Everest report in case you're interested. Is this actually a problem, or just an additional "feature" that will bug me forever with no detriment to the system?

when you want new bios ...drivers or anything related to your computer...get Latitude D600 things...the invoice is meaningless..go with what everest tells you are there..it tells what hardware you have inside the case...unless you were charged more money for a cheaper system..then don't worry about it...
