If you are running Vista on the computer, 3 gig of memory is what is suggested. As far as a sticky space bar, call Dell and have the keyboard replaced if it’s still under warranty.

3 gig recommend???? where you get that from. 1gb to run 2gb recommened, if you have 3gb in a laptop means the rams not running in dual channel, and 2 1gbs would run better.

maybe if you keep your laptop free of rubbish programs, and dont allow things like yahoo, msn icq chats to start up on startup.

and make sure your only running one anti virus program, you dont need every malware dedector in the world running on your pc, just stop going on stupid websites.

nothing wrong with vista its the idiots that use it.

and for god sake do the updates and be sure your running on sp1.

my laptop and pc running vista run better tha\n xp ever did

being that i am a MCSE i know what im talking about, and you back door computer people lay off you cause more problems in the long run.

What free software can be used to improve the sluggish performance of the Dell Inspiron 6000?


A slow computer could becaused by a number of things -1. InsufficientRAM memory - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to atleast 1Gb of RAM.2. Registryproblems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys.Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc.3. Uninstall/removeunused programs, this will also free up hard disk space.4. Notenough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn'tbeen configured to manage it.5. Installlatest Windows updates.6. Updatevirus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc.7. Clearthe Internet cache for faster browsing.8. Harddisk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioningefficiently.Runthe following programs - Disk Cleanup -removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard diskspace.DiskDefragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and thereforethe hard disk access is faster.

MY DELL INTEGRATED WEBCAM HAS BEEN WORKING BEAUTIFULLY. BUT NOW, WHEN I'M FILMING, I NOTICE THE FILM SEEMS TO BE SLOWING AND SPEEDING UP SO THAT THE FINAL FILM HAS JUMPS IN IT. IT'S VERY FRUSTRATING.


This can happen for several reasons :
1 - Multiple applications running in the backgroud (Antivirus / Spyware etc...)
2 - Internet activity, slowing the processor.
3 - Lack of space / Poor fragmented drive.
4 - Drivers may be corrupted
Corrective Actions
1 - Close any 'unwanted / redundant applications when playing with videos.
2 - Disconnect ethernet or wireless when creating videos.
3 - Make space on the Harddrive (you will need 'double' the space of the video, as atemprary version is normally created first - A 30minute video ideally will require a minimum of 500meg to 1gig of space just to start with.
4 - Re-install your web-cam drivers

Slow computer


I'd speak to them again, sounds like you have a faulty stick of RAM, if it freezes then it usually means one of the hex sections of the stick isn't working correctly.

Run MS Vista on Dell 9100


The reason they told your daughter that is because either there isn't a powerful enough CPU and enough memory to support it and also there are no vista drivers for that laptop on Dell's website.

If you decide to put vista on that laptop your going to need to make sure that whatever hardware drivers vista doesn't detect, you'll need to search on the net to find vista compatible drivers if they are out there, it will be time consuming.

My recommendation from my own experience, make sure you have at least a 2GHz processor and 1GB or memory.
