Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M140 Notebook
When I turn the computer up, the desktop icons take a while to show up and i can't click anything and then they begin to flash off and on periodically. I have to use the task manager to do anything on the computer...
If you have a lot of desktop icons (meaning more than 10) you have too many. Try deleting them and opening your files from the start menu. Also run a disk clean up by going to start>all programs>accessories.system tools>disk clean up. Make sure you check ALL boxes and let it finish. If you have not done this in a while it will take a while to complete and you should let it run by its self with no other programs running. The more often you do this the less time it will take and the faster your system will be. I do one every two weeks. Then go to microsoft update and update all updates offered. Go back to the site and check for updates untill there are none left. If you havent updated your system there could be more updates for the updates. Dont rely on just your automatic updates. Physically do them from time to time. I would go thru your add and remove programs and uninstall any programs that you do not use, then run a defrag. You do this the same way you got to disk clean up just choose defrag instead. Let this run untill complete with no other programs running. Restart. Hope this helps.
