SOURCE: Dell Dimension E521 bad sectors

Hi there.
Hard to believe but this can be common depending on the manufacturer of the hard drive as some are not that good at all, some Maxtor's for example.
The best hard drives you can buy at the moment are Western Digital and Seagate, these drives come with 3 - 5 years guarantee so if they develop bad sectors they will replace the the drives free.
The best way to look after your drives is to perform a sector check once a month and keep your internet cache cleared, use a program called Ccleaner to clear the cache and temp files and also keep the registry clean.
I would also recommend you defragment your drive as soon as you have installed a clean operating system or defrag once a month too, that way you will get your full life from the hard drive.

Get Ccleaner here >>>>>>

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 4600 desk top out of virtual memory

Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
 
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
 
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
 
3. Now click the VIEW tab
 
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
 
5. Click APPLY then OK
 
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
 
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
 
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
 
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
 
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
 
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
 
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
 
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
 
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original
 
Hope this gives you the information you need

My desktop dell dimension E521 won't come on. The power button just blinks green. A new power supply was tried but that did not work. What is it likely to be and is it gonna be worth fixing?


E521 motherboards are pretty reasonable: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=dell+e521+motherboard&_sacat=See-All-Categories so it is worthwhile to fix.
The 570 is a decent system although I am still an Intel guy myself

I have a Dell dimension e521, and when i try to open a program i get a little black box that has something to do with system 32. I tried to restore my computer back before i had the problem but showing no...


If you tried a restore. I'm guessing you can start in safe mode. If you can I would try to start in "safe mode with networking" and try to download this:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Secure-cleaning/CCleaner.shtml
You can run the cleaner and, it also has a registry cleaner. If you like it you could buy the full version but, start with the free version. It sounds like you have a registry problem. Something else that's good to have is this:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free
Again, you can try the free version and first, run the quick scan. Later you will want to run a full scan, it takes a couple of hours.

My e521 screen is black & in power saver mode, can not acess any screen or do anything at all.


Narrow it down to a monitor issue (and fix or replace the monitor in particular) or a PC issue (in which case we're also low on info. about the issue.)

My dell dimension e521 will only start up in safe mode ther was a power outage since then i can not use the computer,


Probably corrupted some importand windows system files.
Boot in safe mode, and do a system restore.

Start, Accesories, System Tools, System Restore..
Choose a restore date. The last one in there will likely do it.
Allow it to do it's thing.. Should be all good. Cross your fingers..

DR-R/DVD diver not working


You find the E521 support page here:
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/product_support/en/product_support_central?c=us&l=en&systemid=DIM_P4_E521

There you can click drivers and you see a list of hardware componentes. Select "CD/DVD"

Thereyou can find the firmware and drivers to all the cd/dvd hw that theDELL E521 comes with in default. If for some reason you are unsurewhich to choose, at the TOP of the page you see this line:

S
ervice tag: Add or edit service tag

Ifyou click that you can type in your own service tag (find it on thebottom of your laptop), and the dell center is able to check in thedatabase which cd/dvd was built into your computer and shows you onlythe drivers for your specific laptop.


Please rate if this solution was of help.:)
