DST stands for Drive Self Test, it means your drive is failing.

I would get a new hard drive and USB enclosure, install new drive in laptop and install windows, then take the old drive and install it in the USB enclosure so you can connect to your laptop when windows is running and restore your files, assuming the drive is not completely dead.

thanks for rating

Battery Light Flashes Orange and Green

The LED sequence indicates a failure in the battery. (Like one cell has low charge) As long as the overall battery output meets the minimum for system operation, the battery will work.

The average lifespan for a Portable battery is about 500 discharge/recharge cycles (1 to 2 years) anything after that is a bonus

Replace the battery, issue will go away

You need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the 6000 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

If there is no display on your TV, HDTV, or Projector, please make sure that all of your connections are set up properly and that you have enabled the display in the Catalyst Control Center. The connectors that you will be using would be Svideo for TVOUT, DVI-to-HDTV (Component video), VGA-to-HDTV (Component video) for HDTV, and DVI, VGA, or Svideo for the projector.
737-22474-1.jpg Here are the steps to properly setup and enable TV, HDTV, or Projector:

  • Turn off your PC and your TV, HDTV, or Projector.
  • Ensure that your card was installed correctly, as per the Getting Started Guide.
  • Determine if your TV, HDTV, or Projector has a S-Video (for TV), YPbPr for (HDTV), or VGA/DVI for Projector.
  • Looking at the back of your PC, locate the needed connector or the supplied adapter cable; attach one end of the cable to your graphics card and the other to your second display.
  • Turn on your second display then your PC.
If you are connecting an HDTV to your video card, please Click here for detailed instructions on how to set it up correctly.
Starting Windows with TV or Projector Display Enabled The TV screen may become scrambled during the initial Windows® logo display. This is only a temporary effect and your screen will be restored within a few seconds. During start up, your RADEON will go through a sequence of mode settings, during which your TV display will remain blank. This process takes only a few seconds and helps program the TV display.
  • To enable the second Display
  • Right-click anywhere on your desktop
  • Click Catalyst Control center
  • View
  • Advanced view
  • Display manager
  • Detect Displays
  • You should have the second display picture under “Attached displays currently disabled
  • Drag it to the box on top of it
  • Apply
  • OK
If for any reason the second display does not get detected, please do the following:
  • Open the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER
  • Go to Display options
  • Check “Force TV detection” *
  • Apply
  • OK
* Force TV: Allows you to force TV detection if the ATI driver does not automatically detect TV-out connected to the graphics accelerator.
Possible issues:
In case the users display does not natively support HDTV display timings in the EDID, you can add standard HDTV modes so that the usual HDTV resolutions (720p, 1080i, 1080p) are listed in the Display Manager resolutions. You can also create custom HDTV timings to solve any kind of over-scan options (for cases when the windows desktop appears to not fit on the HDTV screen, and the outside boarder is cut off).
For more information on connecting your second display to your Video card, including supported output device combinations, please refer to your user’s manual.

Green Light turns off when plugged in to the computer.

When I plug in my ac adapter into my computer to charge it the green light turns off and won't charge my computer. My sister has the exact same computer, model, etc. so I took my battery and plugged my ac adapter into her computer and it totally works fine, and I put her battery and used her ac adapter and the green light still turns off. So I know that it's not my battery and not my ac adapter. I'm not sure exactly what it is. It might be where you connect the ac adapter to the computer. It maybe fried or something I don't know. My computer has had a virus problem before and if you look at my ac adapter it has duck tape in numerous places to hold it together cause one of dogs chewed on it a few years ago. My question is what could it be? and How much is this going to cost? Should I just get a new computer?

Hi there, and welcome to FixYa,

DST stands for Drive Self Test, if it fails the test it means your drive is failing.

1. Do you have access to a Windows CD?
If so you can try to boot to the recovery console and run chkdsk /r.
Hopefully you can get it to boot, backup what you need, - then replace the drive.

2. Another solution could bee, - a bit more aggressive,
Reinstall your OS.

3. or - it could just be an error that can’t be fixed. I would get a new disk, install my OS, set the other as slave, and get the needed files.

regards
Teis
