Hello my friend has a Dell Latitude D600 and his laptop was running really slow and would not connect to the internet. No packets would be sent or received. So I went through his ms config and took away all of the junk on his start up. Then I ran adaware, and spy bot. His computer became faster after i ran those two programs, but his soundcard quit working, and when you go to device manager, its empty. Theres not one thing listed, its just blank. When i click add new hardware the window will not open up. He still can't connect to the internet either. I went back to MSconfig and turned everything on and it still does this. Ontop of all of that another thing it does is his start bar at the bottom of the screen is not green and blue or even silver and green. Its just grey like windows 98 and no matter what I do i can't get it to go back to xp style. Anyway if somone could sugest some ideas that'd be great. If all else fails he can always just send it to dell.
