Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, my Dell Studio 1737 takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to boot up. When I turn on the power, I see a black screen then fifteen or more minutes later. I am able to log on and use it without any hiccups. Any suggestions?
Shelisha, may be you have too many programs to start with. That slows you down. Also extensions take time too. Try cleaning up and keep most used. Rest can go into a folder. Clean registry and clutter. I use advanced uninstaller pro. Have you defragmented the hard drive(s).

My best guess is, if they crackle with the speakers but not the headfones, then replace the speakers. Must be a lose wire or something of that nature.

Check the BIOS for PC Health settings. It is possible that you have put a low value for "Critical Temperature", which makes the Laptop to turn off.

Testimonial: "Yes, this has been helpful. This could be an important clue. I wonder, however, why it would not turn off every 30 minutes throughout the day then. "
