Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer
I use to be able to leave my Dell Home Premiun Vista PC on for hours. Now when I hit enter or move the mouse, a black screen with blue running lights above says windows resume. I have to shut the tower off and restart it.
Do two things: 1) do a drive cleanup to remove temporary files. then 2) a scandisk to recover bad and corrupt data. Go to MY COMPUTER RIGHT CLICK the C: drive Choose PROPERTIES Click the DISK CLEANUP button once you get the boxes check ALL OF THEM and let it run. Both the search and the cleanup can take several minutes to an hour or more so be patient. Once that is complete do the same steps as above but instead of disck cleanup choose the TOOLS Tab. Then click CHECK NOW. You will lget an error that asks if you want to do this the next time the pc reboots. Tell it YES then go ahead and restart the PC. This can also take 30-90 minutes to run depending on how much data is on the drive and how bad it may be.
