Hi , bring up your Task Manager again and click on processes.Look for svchost and see how much resources it is using .If it is over 70% then you have likely got a virus,the svchost virus.

No task bar or icons


OK. Here is what you do. Open your browser, type this on the URL line (NO WWW or HTTP) "71.63.66.19" (without quotes). You should see a CCFile window come up on you desktop. You will see an ISO file there right click on it and "save target to" where ever you want to put it. It is over 500MB, so it will take maybe 30-60 min to transfer, but then you can burn it and use it to repair your XP install. Once you have it downloaded and burned, comment back and I'll give you additional assistance. You game?

When I start up my Dell Dimension 8250 (Windows


Sounds like the machine got stuck in the middle of a installation of windows. Best thing to do is to reinstall windows and let the cd format the hard drive, if it can't format the hard drive then the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

Dell Dimension 8250 ,FAN TOO FAST & Noisy but CPU COOL...


The fan settings can be found in the BIOS. On a Dell machine, when you turn the computer on repeatedly hit F2 until you are brought to the BIOS. Search through there until you find something named Acoustics, change the option to run at a lower level. Remember to save the changes before you exit.

Dell Dimension 8250 PC running Windows XP SP2 has CPU always at 100%


I guess it could be a virus, avast is not the best antivirus in my opinion, try to get a norton antivirus or NOD32 update it and run the scan, it ocuurs when a replicating virus copies files to all your HDD and is always busy...making system busy...and one more thing there could easily be a copy of the virus in your pen drive as well...
