Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Computer seems too slow

My computer seems to download too slowly. My Dell Dimension 1100 comes with 2 X 256 megs of memory. I pretty much surf and do email, nothing fancy. Is there an experiment that I can do to determine if I need more memory? (My machine if bug free and defragged.)

Downloading files and processing files are two different things. How fast your computer downloads files is due to your Internet Service Provider. How fast it processes that information relies on a variety of components such as the processor its self, the RAM, as you mentioned, and sometimes your hard drive speed and space.

Figure out which process you are describing--either downloading files or actually opening and processing the files and you'll know where to go.

Just an FYI though, today's computers are shipped with at least 1 GB (1,024 MB) of memory.

Does dell dimenion 2400 have sse2 im trying to install adobe premiere cs3


The Dimension 2400 is pretty old.
You may not have enough memory to install. Check to see what Adobe required by way of hard drive space, CPU speed, and memory.

I have no idea what sse2 is.

I need to do a system restore on my Dell Dimension DE051. I do not have any of the discs and looking for HELP!!!!!


Hello pamnwillie,
To perform a "System Restore.
" Follow these instructions carefully, and you will have no problem at all.
The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button,paul7of9_50.jpg" from the Desktop.
Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories," next select the "System Tools.
" You will see in the next window that open, "System Restore!

paul7of9_51.jpg

"Now this is very important!
Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut" it will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer.
The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run, so be patient
"Do not try to do any type of work, don't even touch the keyboard for any reason,
just let it run!"
Once the System Restore finds the correct "Date and Time"of the event;
choose the Date closest to the time of the occurrence.

Now once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer,
and please don't.
The System Restore will "run" for a while, so once again be patient.

The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart."
Lo-gin if you have to; but!
Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop window open, because System Restore is still running.
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the Restore of your System was successful! Take your time.
"I hope all goes well, please let me know if you need further assistant.
Best Regards.
Thanks for using Fix'Ya."

download CCleaner. It will delete stuff you dont need, this should help clean things up and speed up your system. At the same time you should uninstall unwanted applications and delete files you dont need.

Dell Dimension 1100 computer will not Hibernate


Hibernation in Windows XP is problematic at best. I suggest you forget hibernation and just turn the monitor off when not in use.

You will pobably need to load the driver for your system.

Go to Dell Support and click on the Drivers & Downloads box.

Follow the prompts to select your specific system model. you will end up at a page that lists all the available drivers for your computer. Click the + sign next to "Audio" and you can select "Download Now".

When the download window opens, select "Install".

Dell laptop latitude x300 won't boot up


Your laptop hard drive is probably damaged from the fall. The reason why diagnostic test after memory fails is that it’s trying to load from the “Diagnostic Partition” which is located on your hard disk drive. You could try to remove and reseat the hard disk drive and see if that works, otherwise you’ll have to take the drive to a local computer repair shop to see if they can retrieve any data.

Maybe a virus


is it the internet that runs slow or everything? either way, go to the following site:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

click on the link that says "Scan Now. Its Free!" it will do an online virus scan of your computer, and this should get rid of any viruses you have. You may have to install Java for it to work. If so, it should provide a link to install it. If it doesnt, google "java software" and download the software. it may also be a RAM problem (not enough computer memory) but thats probably not as likely if your computer is new. Also, you can go the task manager and delete all of the processes that you think arent needed (such as itunes, etc. make sure that your user name is under the user name column for each one you are deleting, and DO NOT delete the "explorer" process or any system processes). And this may speed up your computer as well.
