Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer
Have to turn off the computer with the front button held in for 5 seconds. Starts up again when powered on. Has happened two times in the past week. Is the Hard Drive going out? Thanks for help. Mimi
It certainly does sound that way.
Download Speed Fan and check your hard-drive's SMART readout. If it looks bad, back up your files and be prepared for the worst. If however the readings look fine, try defragmenting your system with the assistance of the free trial of O&O Defrag. Running the Complete/ACCESS defrag method will ensure that your files can be read as quickly as possible by the hard-drive without all the fragmentation.
NOTE: You may have to defragment more than once before this issue is cleared up. Severely fragmented hard-drives are never fixed with the first defragmentation.
Let me know if I can help you further, I certainly do hope things turn out good for you.
