I have a Dell Inspiron 1521. I got a new HDD for it i installed vista on it...like 3minutes ago it was running fast now all of the sudden it's slow. I open up task manager and in the performance tab it shows only 621MB on my physical memory usage history. I have no idea why it's like that or what it means I have 2 gigs of RAM. Do I need new RAM then? Or reformat my HDD again, cause I was told to reformat once more so my comp can recognize it better or w/e.

Firstly, what Operating System came with you Inspiron 1521? It's either Windows XP or Windows Vista, my guess would be that it has Windows Vista (If you've not replaced the Operating System since you purchased it).
I would imagine that if it's not something simple like the volume of the mic being set to zero or muted, then it could be an issue with the drivers.
If you are running Vista, your best bet is to download the following drivers
What operating system are you running on your dell 1521 laptop? What drivers are supported on your Dell 720 printer?
If you are running Windows Vista on your laptop and there are only drivers for your printer up until Windows XP and nothing is on Dell's website for your printer in terms of drivers, then you can only try to run Windows Vista in Compatibility Mode.
If this doesn't work, then you'll need to get a new printer.
Hey bro, a gross consumption of system resources s a good sign of... sorry to be the one to tell you, but a virus. A good free virus removal/detector is avg ( http://free.avg.com/ ). If this isn't the problem, you might want to shut down extra junk. You can delete stuff from your Programs folder, or you can do a temp thin. Under run on the start menu, type msconfig. From here, you can shut down any programs that you don't need. Just make sure to restart when you're done.
It seems your new HDD is not formatted properly there are few bad sectors so u need to format once more. Thats a page file error once your OS detected you new HDD it started using root of that HDD for pagefile.sys and that fall on bad sector which generated delayed write and in turn you got dun dun dun.
