Since this is such an old machine I would imagine there are a lot of unnecessary programs running in the background and starting with windows. I would say the quickest solution would be to back up any data you want to keep and then reformat and reinstall. If you do not wish to do that there are some other steps you can take. First go into the control panel and then add/remove programs. Go through the list and uninstall everything you don't need/want. Secondly, click start then click run and type in "msconfig" without the quotation marks. Click on the start up tab and uncheck everything you don't need to have starting with windows. I would also run your spyware/adware scanners and run your anti-virus. Lastly, I would defrag your hard drive.

My dell laptop starts out really slow when i first turn it on. Takes forever to load. But as I use it it picks up speed and becomes "normal"


when you boot into windows open the run command on the start menu, type in msconfig and another window will open, on the tab click startup, disable the programmes you don't want to run at start up, things like adobe reader don't need to run at start, be careful not to disable anything you need and then apply and reboot, see how that go's

Hi I have a Dell inspiron and I can't get the right click button to work


In dell computers there is diagnostic... You can run the diag by pressing the FN key and turning the computer on.. It will run a small test then select custom test and choose mouse... Then you can check the working of the mouse.. If its not working there please contact dell and replace it.. If it works then reinstall the touchpad drivers from the dell website... The issue will be fixed...

I was on my computer the other day and it went really slow what is wrong?


Hi there;

As you are using dell inspiron 1501 pc notebook it has operation system windows Xp and as your laptop is running slow you can try some of the following steps

1)click on start>>run>>in run type prefetch and delet all folders

2)click on start>>run>>in run type temp and delete all folders

3)click on start>>run>>in run type %temp% and delete all folders

all theses folder contain the junk files and if have too many junk files in these folder your system will run slow

the next step that you can follow is stoping the software running automatically which are another reason to make your system slow inorder to stop the software to run automatically you have to follow

click on start>>run>>type msconfig

go to start up tab and unchecked the software that you don't want to run by them self and then click on Apply button and restart your system

you can also try to scan the system with anti virus to make sure your system is not running slow

Regards

I formatted my dell inspiron 1501 and returned it to factory new, but in a word processing program the type is slow to appear, almost like it's running in slow motion. It eventually appears, but it is...


OK if you returned to factory specs go to power settings switch from default to performance this eats more power but every program runs faster!!
i hope this helps you let me no.

Inpiron 1501 keyboard working slow


Does the issue occur in Safe Mode (Press F8 at boot, select safe mode) If not then a program is likely conflicting, run a virus and spyware scan. If the issue does occur in safe mode, try adjusting keyboard settings in COntrol panel

Insperon 1501 freezes


This can be caused by hardware or software. Eliminate the hardware by running a diagnostic check. To do this, hold down the <FN> key and push the power button. If hardware checks out, you probably have a software, virius or spyware issue.
