Hi. My daughter has a Dell D600 that is no longer under warranty. Naturally, now that it is not covered, she dropped it. Fortunately, after I ran diagnostics, the only thing that seems to be a problem is the hard disk. I am getting replacement drive so that part is OK. I do have an issue though. Since it got dropped, the back right corner of the case (where the screen hinges) has a crack in it, so the screen does not close fully. Also, the screen shut-off switch looks like it may not be making good contact all the time. Q: What do I need to do to remove the case and ensure that there are no small pieces of plastic floating around, and that I can get the screen to close properly? Thanks a lot for any advice. Hi. Apologize for using up bandwidth -- should have checked the message boards a bit more than I did. Found the answer on this, and someone was kind enough to include a link to Dell's Service Manual fro the Latitude D600: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/sm/index.htm Thanks.
