Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

My computer is running slow.

I have a dell laptop and it had 1 GB on it and I had it changed to 2 GB because the dell support said it was low on memory and that is why it was freezing up and running slow. It seems to still be freezing even though I bought two chips (1GB each) to put in. I need help to figure out what to do to help my PC. I have vista.

What year was dell latitude d510 introduced and does it support windows 7


  • It was introduced around 2005. It lacks the RAM necessary to run windows 7 (It has 512 MB, when you need 1 GB). So, I'm afraid this computer is not compatible with windows 7 unless you upgrade the RAM
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I helped!

Changing cpu performance


Update the BIOS and the chipset from the manufacturer.

Uninstall the unnecessary softwares from the system.

Clear temorary files and folders.

Try to do a disk defragmenter on the hard drive.

If your system has low RAM (256/512 MB) then it is advisable to increase the RAM to 1 GB / 2 GB.

Have very few startup programs (to change the startup programs Go to Run -> msconfig -> Startup.

Hope this helps.

Inspiron 1150 Slow startup, slow printing, unable to run 2 programs at once


What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
