Hey Camry, if you believe your computer is running slow due to viruses then run an antivirus program. I recommend AVG AntiVirus (it's also free). Before you download it make sure you uninstall other antivirus programs on your computer if you have any. More than one can really mess with your computer. Once you download it, scan your computer. Then scan for malware (most likely you have malware and not virus). Download Spybot or malwarebytes (this should not interfere with AVG) and scan for malware. Then just restart your computer and hopefully it goes a little bit faster. I say little bit because usually there more problems than just malware issues. Such as not enough space on you hard drive. Delete things you do not NEED. Freeing up space can really improve the speed of your computer. Also, if your computer is getting hot (if you feel it or you hear your fan running full speed) I suggest you get a laptop fan. My laptop has no virus or malware and only has half of the memory used and is 5 years old (Dell latitude) but when it gets hot (my average temp for dual core: 75 degrees C). This really slows down my computer. You can download programs that will tell you the temp of your laptop. Also make sure you shut your laptop down once in a while to clear the RAM.
Sorry it is so lengthy but there is so much that one can do to make the laptop go faster. I hope this helps you though, if it does not give me your feedback. Good luck. - Joe.

Please scan the system for viruses. If your system has viruses, all you can do is a PC restore which is taking the system to the factory default settings. Please back up the data before performing the PC restore.

Latitude d520 will not recognize power adapter


I have heard about this problem with a number of Dell laptops, including the Inspiron models. The problem is that the connector for the power port may have been loosened after many years of use. This may require service from Dell on the motherboard.
