Re: printer for dell inspiron 1520 laptop running vista
Kodak has just come out with a fairly low cost printer/scanner combo that has low cost ink. The printer sells for $149 and ink tends to run about $15 per cartridge. You can also get any number of low cost ink jets from HP. There are re-manufactured HP cartridges that are low priced as well if you really need to keep costs down. Also, check www.frys.com. They have a Canon printer/scanner on sale for $29.99, plus shipping. Almost worht tossing the printer when the ink goes out.

Some of your terminology might be off. I might guess that your Dell 1520 laptop is approaching 7 years old and runs Windows Vista. Your can run Disk Cleanup (found under All Programs > Accessories > System Tools). You likely have many programs running in the background when your startup your computer. You will need to go to the Control Panel > Programs and Features; then removed any unwanted programs. If you are really out of space on your hard drive, this steps will help a bit, but there will be only so much you can do at this stage.
The most common reason is memory. Try reseating (remove and reinsert) the memory, first.
Power off the computer and disconnect all cables. Flip the laptop to the back. Remove the battery. The memory cover has 8 screws. Remove the memory modules at a
25 degree angle and reinsert them by pushing them down firmly by the ends.
If reseating the memory doesn't solve your problem, one module may be bad. So, remove and test each module one at a time.
I would try checking the power supply first before replacing the battery. The power supply is much cheaper and sometimes interchangabel with other models. Also try cleaning and reseating it. If you do end up needing a battery though dont buy it from dell. get it on ebay, amazon or a decent priced online store for best prices. If you're lucky you could get another one for about $20 or $30. good luck
I would always go with an extended warrenty dell pc's usually don't use the best hardware and tend to die in the 2-3 year range. The only reason I would say don't get it is if you are just going to go out and get a new if that one dies anyways.
The Inspiron 1720 &1721 series was released more than a year ago and is no longer available new, only refurbished. The comparbable machines currently on the market is the Inspiron 1525 & 1526 series. The 1525 &1526 series are comparable in price and specs, and the specs are a little better as far as graphics and sound cards. The 1730 series is still available, but it has a price of approx $2500. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
