Dell 600m running extremely slow -- has no viruses

Hello all,

My Dell inspiron 600m is running very slow. Programs such as IE and just random browsing through the OS is painfully slow.

I have ran several disk defrags as well as constant virus scans all to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much

Why don't my Dell 600m USB ports work?

Hello here is the homepage:

Look for any drivers missing, in the device manager.

You will probably need, the chipset driver, to make the usb port work.

You will also need service pack 1, to support the usb function.

Good luck

How do I change my web browser and find a faster one?

Answering this question is kind of tricky. Browser speed can be impacted by many different things. I have a laptop that uses Windows 7 with IE 9 and it browses extremely fast - but you have to consider all of the external factors that can impact browsing speed.

Here are a few things to examine and maybe your browser speed will increase:

- Have you run all of the available updates for the computer software?

- Have you run a full virus/malware scan to ensure your computer is not infected with some sort of a virus or malware that may be slowing down your browser?

- Have you deleted the temp files and reset the browser defaults. (In IE you can do this under the Tools>Internet Options area and clicking on the Delete button. Then go to the Advanced Tab and choose Reset)

- Have you run a disk defragment or disk cleanup? These programs, built into Windows XP, are under Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

- Have you tried a different computer on the same network you are using and compared speeds? If a "known good" computer is performing similarly on your network or your home internet connection, then it may not be the computer or the browser that is slow - but it may be the internet connection itself. Sometimes you can improve this by unplugging the power from your Internet Modem or Router for a minute or two and then plugging the power back in, and then rebooting the computer.

- Have you uninstalled extra toolbars or browser add-ins that may be clogging up the browser? You can usually remove these extra programs in the Add/Remove Programs section of Control Panel.

If you try these things and the browser speed does not increase, it may be necessary to format and re-install the operating system on your computer. It is possible for registry or file damage to have occurred that may prevent a possible fix. If this is the case - it is a long process, but a fresh start will always make things seem to perform better.

Run your anti virus and anti malware programs. If you do not have a anti malware program go to and download a free anti malware program. It sounds as if you have a virus on your computer

My dell inspiron 1525 is very slow causes?

try to check running programs on the back ground, you could view that by going to the task manager.
exiting programs that you dont need will give you some spare virtual memory.
to access task manager:
press ctrl+alt+del then press task manager,

also check the loading programs upon booting the computer, check your startup and remove unnecessary programs that load upon startup.

set your computer to have the best performance

one more thing try to disable your anti virus to see if it is the cause of the slowing of performance.
