Question about Dell XPS M1210 Notebook

1 Answer

Boot issues The system will not boot entirely. Everything is running in slow motion and it freezes up in various areas. I tried to run in safe mode but it kicks me out after instructing to insert Start up disk. I did that but nothing happens.

Computer very slow ,won't print,forever to load pages, have corrupted files


Several things can slow down the computer: overheating, spyware, not enough RAM etc. If you know for sure you have corrupted files were they corrupted by a virus? You may need to reinstall Vista.

Is it slow when you boot up in safe mode? To boot into safe mode hit (usually) F8 while it is booting up. Let it completely boot into safe mode and then reboot again. Now is if it is behaving better.

To get rid of spyware download the free Spybot Search & Destroy from the net, run the update and then run it to dectect and get rid of the spyware. Spyware tries to send info which can slow down everything.

Overheating - does it feel hot? Is the fan running and pushing air?

If it worked fine before it is unlikely you don't have enough RAM. Windows itself needs at least 256mbs to run well without running other problems.

Again if you know files are corrupted, if they are windows files, you might need to reinstall vista.

Very slow mac mini 60gb


There are quite a lot of reasons that may cause a Mac Mini computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac Mini is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Have you tried booting from the original system CD? Another option would be to download and burn an ISO image of Linux Ubuntu Workstation 9.10 Live CD. Try to Boot from this CD. If it boots successfully, it should give you the ability to access your hard drive to retrieve your data. It might also indicate if your system is having a hardware issue. We have installed and run Ubuntu Linux and plenty of these machines with good success... great way to troubleshoot hardware functionality and allow access to data without loosing it.

Computer freezes, won't let me do a restore system either.


Restart your computer and hit F8 and go under Last Known Working Configuration and that should fix problem and if not go into safe-mode and if you have bought Norton delete Norton's and reinstall

G5 Mac Desktop freezes at random


First you need to run some maintenance (which in itself may solve it) to rule out software issues, so start here...  
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
 
Mac OS X: How to start up in single-user or verbose mode
 
If that doesn't help, try booting into Safe Mode and see what happens, if it comes up hopefully another restart may solve, if not, you can at least use this as a starting point to try and resolve. Safe Mode will allow you to get around, surf, etc...
  
What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode?
  
Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode

If Safe Mode comes up alright, I would install AppleJack, excellent troubleshooting article can be found here... Troubleshooting Tools: AppleJack
 
Another excellent free tool for performing maintenance is Onyx (be sure to download the right version for your system). Install the package, then run it, it will check your drive and the structure, after this, click on the automation tab and check on everything for Maintenance, Clear Cache, Cleaning, and check on Reset -> LaunchServices database and Mail's Envelope Index. When it completes, restart. Repeat any time something seems flaky, if not try to run at least once a month.

Very slow, slow to downloan anything, very slow to open, slow on everything.


you must have a trojan or virus, you hopefully have an antivirus programme installed, which you will need to run in safe mode (F8 on boot up and select safe mode) and then restart your system.
