I am helping my friend try to fix his computer ( it's a Dell latitude 600 with windows XP) and ran the diagnostic on the start up and got the start dst short test error code 1000 0146. It let's me load windows but some programs are slow and wont let me browse the Internet at all. I installed webroot virus scanner and it detected a win 32 virus and got ride of it but still having the same problem with the same error coming up. Any help would be appreciated.

The Dell Latitude D600 laptop is 9 - 10 years old.

I agree with blues_harp28 that it's hard drive is probably failing.

Hopefully, it's not using the original amount of RAM that came in it.

If it is, it needs to be increased to 1 GB(512 MB X 2).

Thank you so much. I kind of figured but wasn't sure. I tried wiping everything out with the recovery CD and it doesn't seem like it worked all the way. I'm unable to establish an internet connection when I have Wifi and in the notification try the icons for the volume, wireless networks aren't there. Also I restarted it and ran the diagnostic test again and the error is still there. So I'm guessing it's the hard drive.
