How often do you defragment your computer/ it should be done monthly.
If not defragged lately, do that first and we can go from there. Do not use computer while defragging.

When i turn on my smartbook a thing pops up and says:: APPLICATION ERROR application explorer.exe encountered a serious error and must shut down ive shut it down at least 5 times now i need help!


See if going into safemode would get you the same error, if the error persists, then it could be hardware related issue if it doesnt, simply reformat your OS.

Inspiron 531s will not boot up, keeps beeping, saying it is in power save mode. How do I fix the problem


System Beep Codes The Inspiron™ 531 / 531s system can emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. One possible beep code consists of repetitive three short beeps. This beep code indicates the computer encountered a possible system board failure.
The series of beeps has a 3-second delay before it repeats. The series and delays continually loop until you press the power button.
Code Description Suggested Remedy 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error 2 No memory modules detected
  1. If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  2. If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
3 Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel® platform); chipset error System board failure. Power LED is blinking amber. Time-Of-Day Clock test failure Gate A20 failure Super I/O chip failure Keyboard controller test failure 4 RAM read/write failure
  1. Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
  2. Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
5 Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.
  1. Replace the battery.
  2. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
6 Video BIOS test failure Video card failure 7 CPU cache test failure Processor failure

Hi
I am sorry that the Computer is not turning ON.
Please remove the Battery and connect the Computer to Direct AC Outlet and also remove and reinstall the RAM modules.
If the same issue persists then the available option would be replacing the internal Hardware component such as Motherboard.

Generic Host Process for Win32


Hi

This may be because of the corrupt files or due to an virus infection, how ever you can fix this problem by replacing the corrupted files with clean system files. For this you require a OS cd. Follow the instructions below.

This process is called System File Checker(SFC)

1. Go to Start, then to Run, and type in " SFC.EXE /SCANNOW " ( only text in bold) press Enter.

2. This would ask you to insert the Windows XP / Vista Installation CD.

If problem still persists, feel free to revert back.

I suggest you have a general maintenance of this pc..Like a system defragmenter,disk clean up and then a whole anti virus scan..If you are running windows o/s then look for 2 software to boost speed of the pc..Look for a program called cacheman xp which will greatly improve perfomance and also look for registry mechanic which will repair bugs in registry..Believe me this would make a big difference to your pc..Now if this persist then use a different browser like firefox..

  1. Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  2. Remove a memory module. If the PC stops beeping, the memory module may be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated/connected. Try reseating the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem, otherwise replace the module. Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all modules have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  3. If your computer has a graphics card, remove it. If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern, the video card may still be good. reseat the video card into its socket and continue to the next step. If the beep code goes away, the video card may be bad. Try reseating the video card, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card.
  4. Remove a PCI card. If the beep code goes away, the card may be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card. Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all cards have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  5. Disconnect hard drives and CD/DVD drive cables (IDE/ATA) from the motherboard socket. If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems persist, the drive itself may be bad and may need to be replaced. Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. Once all connections have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.
  6. At this point, the problem probably involves the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case. Make sure jumpers are set correctly.
