Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
I have a Dell 9300 Inspron from 05. It still works great but here are my questions. I'm tech challenged, thanks for the help.
1. The battery light is flashing. I have replaced it once. Does it mean its on its way out again?
2. What is the best way or is there an online program that I can run to clean up my computer and make it run a little faster.
3. Are there DELL updates that I should be downloading to help with over all performance.
Can you tell me what the battery indicator is supposed to be doing and does it only flash on and off when AC power is plugged in?
The best free system tool for cleaning the system is CCleaner, use this nifty little app for cleaning the temp files, temporary internet files and recycle bin.
Also use the registry cleaner to keep system files running smoothly (make sure you back up to the registry when it asks you)
Download CCleaner from here >>>>>
And in answer to your last question, there are no updates from Dell apart from any utilities that they may offer.

You've asked a lot.
The battery light could indicate it's on its way out. What does the battery life indicate if you unplug the unit from the wall? How old is the battery that is in it now?
You can clean up your computer by using the hard drive cleanup utility in Windows, (in the system tools), and then you can check your hard drive for errors and defrag it (in the tools tab when you are viewing the properties of the hard drive.) You can run msconfig and disable startup programs you don't need.
And--for upgrades, the cheapest upgrade with the most bang for the buck is to increase your memory.
As for Dell updates, you could check their site for updates in utilities.
If all this boggles your mind, let me know and I'll lead you through the steps to do it.
