Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

I left my laptop in the car on a 100 degree day in Louisiana for about 10 hours. It probably got to 130-140 degrees in the car. It won't boot up now. It doesn't have a 3.5" drive to try a startup disc on. Is there any hope that I will at least be able to recover the data? What about getting it to run again? Thanks in advance. Steven


Answers :

Hi Steve,
You should be able to recover the data from the hard drive but as for the laptop itself being left in intense heat like that could have damaged the internal components.
Have you tried to boot the laptop up on AC power only? and is there any life in the laptop at all? for example, are there and LED indicator lights lit up or flashing?
Remove your hdd then insert into another pc or laptop then access you hardrive, copy all inportand document.. like,disktop folder, my documents, favorate.. ( go to the, documents and setting\\user(name of the user admin or what)\\..
