Re: notebook make bad sound

Hi, Based on the model of your laptop, I would suggest that you increase the memory to max about 2 X 256 (512Mb) (576 MB - 100MHz SDRAM). Your laptop came in several versions from PIII 650 to 1.0G. Running XP might barely be ok with 1G but definitely will be slow in 650. You might want to downgrade your OS to say Win2K or perhaps even a 98SE. The "bad" sound may be a result of low memory. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

My dell mini 10 always hang

Mini computers come with 1GB RAM so the system will be slow..
If it freezes very often then try to run a disgnostics on the system.. U can do it by turning on the computer tap F12 - under advanced boot options select diagnostics and run a complete test.. If you get any error codes then contact dell to fix the issue.. If you dont get any error codes then try to clean the computer by doing disk clean up... If it still hangs then do a complete reinstall....
