    It takes a very long time to start up or to try and bring up anything, can't install Epson Photo rx680 printer it goes 2 steps and nothing else. A lot of times it says Microsoft not responding. Other programs also not responding.

Try to check running programs on the back ground, you could view that by going to the task manager.
exiting programs that you dont need will give you some spare virtual memory.
to access task manager:
press ctrl+alt+del then press task manager,

also check the loading programs upon booting the computer, check your startup and remove unnecessary programs that load upon startup.

set your computer to have the best performance

one more thing try to disable your anti virus to see if it is the cause of the slowing of performance.

I having a dell inspiron 1525 laptop i brought 16 months back but now system was once i start with in 30minuts it will became very heat and automatcally will shut down would you please tell me the reason

The only thing in can think of is the cooling fan in the notebook has died. there is a few things that can cause them to go out.
1. just the age of the fan
2. alot of dust gets into the fan
3. smoking alot around the computer can cause tar to build up on the fan also causing it to go out.
4. The vents on the fan are clogged by dust.
Those are a few things that can cause this.
hope that helps a little bit thanks

Cooling fan Rattle

It should still be under warranty at 6 months old.
If you attempt to repair yourself, you will void the warranty.
Talk to Dell before you do anything.
