Very slow boot on 660 inspiron


The first thing you can try is to start up your dos shell, Inside the dos shell type chkdsk /f this will run a check on your registry etc and will fix any issues that it may have, Please note that it will get so far and tell you that it could not perform an action as windows is currently being used do you wish to run this check the next time windows start, Tell it yes by typing y press enter and restart it will perform it's checks and if it finds any problems it will fix them and generate a report at the end to tell you what it fixed. If this does not work, Try updating your BIOS from the Dell website this can be found under the driver and support section you can download it or do it on line ( Best Off Downloading as it will restart your system into a setup type screen and you will loose your internet connection. If after all this and it is still very slow at startup contact Dell support for further technical assistance. I hope this helps.

How to restore Dell 1550 Inspiron to actual factory setting


Unless your using a email program such as thunder bird or if it is a Yahoo or Gmail account I would not even worry about having to delete anything.

Wont boot up.which button should i press to reset factory settings on powering up?inspiron 530


Factory settings are normally achieved by pressing the F8 on boot up, and choosing the option for "Repair My Computer". If this doesn't work, then CTRL+F11 should take you directly into the recovery option.

THIS LINK FROM DELL should walk you through the process.

Does my 1550 have blue tooth


Here's a rundown of what you don't get in the Inspiron 1501 that comes standard with the Inspiron 1505, I am assuming yo did a typo with the 1550
  • No dedicated media buttons on the front
  • No Dell Media Direct software feature
  • No FireWire port
  • No S-Video port
  • 3-in-1 card reader instead of 5-in-1
  • No internal Bluetooth option
But if yours is the 1501 then just buy a $7 blue tooth doogle that slots into your usb then your bluetooth problem is solved.
