Tip & How-To about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

Keeping your System Clean(what cuases most crashes)

Most crashs are caused by your system being bogged down.

Instead of me telling you what all the clutter your system holds, I'll just get to the bottom of it and tell you how to clean it up!

1.Disk clean up, please go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>disk clean up
2.Go to start>run>type "prefetch" without the quotes and press ctrl+a to select all and delete all the files, then go empty your trash.
3.Now find a good registry cleaner or system cleaner, this is a good free one:
http://www.ccleaner.com/

Now I advise scanning your system for threats, I would go to www.grisoft.com download one of there trials any software trial you like and run a complete scan, and clean your system ones it's done.

Thanks for reading this short tip, and I hope it helps (:

Check your coil for cracks or signs of corrosion. If you instead have a distributor cap, do the same. If it all looks okay, start the vehicle and pop the hood. Get a water bottle or something to spray water with and start getting the wires and coil and distributor wet until the truck stalls. Make sure to do it slowly so you can tell what part you soaked that caused the truck to stall.

hang problem


Computers, no matter the make or the model, have a tendency to freeze up. This typically occurs when you overload the RAM on the computer and the laptop can not process any more information. When your laptop freezes, you are not left with many options, so you'll you need to restart the system.

1.Press and hold "CTRL," "ALT" and "Delete" at the same time. Wait and see if a prompt window loads. If one does you can select the program causing the crash and close it. This allows you to return to using the laptop.
2.Push and hold the power button until the system turns off. Typically, you need to hold the power button down for a few moments before the laptop shuts down.
3.Remove the power cord from the laptop if the power button does not turn the computer off. Occasionally this can occur, in which case you need to find an alternative way of cutting the power.
4.Flip the laptop over if the power button is not turning the computer off. Find the battery compartment on the bottom of the laptop and remove it from the computer. Momentarily the computer shuts down. Leave the battery out for a few moments.
5.Insert the battery back into the computer and press the power button. Shortly, the computer restarts and begins to load the operating system.

I hope you find it very helpful.

I press the power off button and it doesn't power off


You should never power down by pressing the power button unless your system is deadlocked and won't respond to any other actions. Powering off in this fashion can cause you to lose data, corrupt files, and improperly shut down Windows.

Nonetheless, if you are in need of shutting down the laptop in this fashion you must hold the power button instead of only pressing it. You'll find this in the power settings of the device. Honestly, the power button may even be set to do nothing, which is possible.

To properly shut down your new Pavilion laptop, which should be running Windows 7, follow this process: Click Start > Shut Down

Start is now simply a circular Windows icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and shut down has an arrow pointing down next to it. Click the words shut down instead of the arrow which will bring up other power save options.

I had to reinstall my Winfax Pro. Now i cant get my phonebooks from Outlook 2007 imported back into Winfax. Any solutions??


Dear. Try System Restore. Enter the date that you remember your Winfax.pro worked and included your phone book. Enter that date and restore your system. Sounds like you have clutter problems. Clean up your system daily. Go to Tools on the top right of your computer. Click Internet Options on the drop down menu. Click Delete in the pop up box to clean internet history. Then Click Ok when system is done cleaning the history that bogs down your computer.
Also, run your Defragment Program over and over until it completes its action within seconds. Then run Disk Clean. Your system will run smoother. Be blessed.
