Question about Dell INSPIRON 6000 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ,512mb,40GB,DVDRW,XP (086216118098) PC Notebook
I had over 9000, that's nine thousand registry entries that had to be removed (I had never heard of that before). The improvement was nothing short of miraculous!
regseeker is a free application that works good.

Jessica, I have the same computer as you. Mine is 2 yrs old and I was having alot of problems with the computer freezing and the start up being extremely slow. I downloaded Registry Mechanic and Free Registry Repair and run them each time before I get ready to shut down my pc and it clears up any problems I might have as well as cleaning out all the cookies, temp files and history. I don't know what antivirus you are using, but I did find that when I removed my Norton's antivirus and replaced it with Norton's 360 the start up was a lot faster!! Another thing I have done is downloaded Firefox browser and use it rather than Internet Explorer (although I still have have IE), Firefox runs alot smoother and quicker and with better protection. I as well am a college student and do alot of homework and a few classes via the internet. I hope this helps some what. Jill

Jessica sounds like you have a few possible problems. first when you start your computer goto my computer and right click on the hard drive icon. Goto properties then select check disk. After this is done. ( it may take a while depending on how many errors) then do the same thing go into my computer right click on the hard drive icon goto properties and select defrag. When you are in defrag first let it analyze your hard drive. If it says you need to defrag let it defrag your hard drive. Once all this is done then restart your computer. You should notice a big change in speed both in your post bios and in your windows startup. After your computer has stopped loading windows. Check to see how many icons you have in system tray. ( to many icons or programs running in system tray can cause your computer to slow dramatically) Delete or disable the icons you do not use in your system tray. Then log on the internet and go to your favorite search engine. Type in registry repair. And run the program ... this will fix any registry errors plus some of them have capability to remove junk files even clean out your temp internet. If you have any more problems feel free to contact me. I will talk you through it step by step if need be.

Ok jess it sounds also like it might be a heat problem also. does your fan make loud nosies if so you may need a new fan for your laptop. try just closing your laptop for a while when this starts to happen or use your laptop in cold areas like a huge fridge haah jk no but if you notice your laptop getting hot just give it a break for about 20-30 mins.

On ac power when you hit the power button, if there are no lights, it could be the power supply. If there are lights, try starting it without the battery, ac only. If there are lights and it still doesn't start after removing the battery, try a different memory chip. On Dell machines the battery can acquire a dead short causing it to not start. Also if the memory chip/chips have gone out it will cause it not to start. If it still will not start after these three it's a motherboard problem and will most likely have to be replaced.
