|Thank you, Larry. Your very timely assistance was right on target. I sincerely appreciate your help.|
I'm running the Diagnostics now. So far one error has occurred with the code 2000-0333. Not sure what to do with that yet, but everything else is checking out OK so far. The Mem test is still running.
Thanks also for the Dell Service Manual. I've downloaded it for future reference.
BTW, do you own a Latitude E6510? If so, I might want to ask further questions of you. What would be the best way to contact you?
Let me give you a little background. I acquired my E6510 when the original owner abandoned it. It did not work right, and I could not get it to run, no matter what I tried. Also I have no knowledge of Win 7 and thought this might be a good way to learn it.So I wiped the hard drive clean, purchased a new Windows 7 installation disk, and tried to install it. I got through the first four steps: copying Windows files, expanding Windows files, installing features, and installing updates, but when the fifth step "Completing Installation" was to begin, I received a message "Disk Error".
I tried the installation four times and each time the installation failed at the same point. I just have no idea what to do next except maybe send the computer back to Dell and ask them to fix it.
Wish me luck.
