7 years old Dell loading slowly

My parents have a dell desktop that is about 7 years old. It is really slow to load- even starting up and loading webpages. However, we have a high-speed internet connection. Is the computer just old or is there a way to speed it up?

There is something wrong with my Dell Desktop Optiplex 210L PC..?


Start running a thorough virus scan.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop


Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.

2: Download and run AntiMalware and RogueRemover Free from here:

3: Defragment your drive.

Compression isn't such a good idea on a drive, it doesn't always de-compress correctly.

It may be worth testing your memory with MemTest: http://www.memtest.org/

Let us know how it goes :)
