The Vostro 1000 has a serious heat issue. Bad design of the heatsink/fan and CPU. I would bet that your onboard graphics card is also over heating. I would suggest you download speedfan program (its free) and see what temp your machine is running at. AMD's can take upwards of 145 degrees F Intel's depend on the CPU before issues happen.

I just had them send me a new motherboard, heatskink, fan, cpu, and ram for mine as it was heating up to 190 degrees and the monitor would go black and machine would either shut down or stall big time for a few mins. Especially if I was playing any sort of game or rip'n movies.

You can download speed fan here:

If you machine is still under warrantee, Dell knows about this issue and will repair your machine or send you the parts to repair it yourself. That is up to you!

Hope this helps you and others!

    Ooops forgot to send you the link to learn how to dismantle your Vostro 1000 case to get to the heatsink/fan/cpu to clean it.



    Here is the link with complete directions and pictures. If you dont think you can do this , dont as if you are still under warrantee, Dell will not honor it anymore if you break something.

Epson R300 printing only in top left corner of page


Change the paper settings in the driver when you go to print. If you have it set to 10x15 it will only print a 10x15 patch in the corner.

Go to START, PRINTERS AND FAXES then right click on R300 and select PROPERTIES. Click PRINTING PREFERENCES and set the correct paper properties. Click OK all the way to desk top and the settings will be saved.

On the printer panel press ADVANCED, scroll down 3 times to PAPER SIZE and press OK. Select A4 and press OK.
