That's most likely a virus that's gotten into your sound device drivers. Try updating/reinstalling them. Try Dell's website or a search engine for exact drivers and how to install them.

How can i get my computer to run the way it use to


Windows tends to slow down with time. That is why so many people reset to original status.


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. 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. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Acer 5542 freezes


You can start by checking the Event Viewer. Right click My Computer / Manage. Check System for Errors and Warnings. They can be very technical, but most likely there is some event. Check Application as well. There is a Filter option under View. Leave Warning and Error checked.

A helpful tip.

When attempting to load graphics, computer slows drastically or shuts down (returns to homepage). Is this due to the built in graphics, or???

Try disabling startup programs from loading in the first place. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically.

Crackles even after blades are cleaned


To stop the crackling sound, you need to remove all of the dust particles from the wire in the back. Sometimes when the unit is extremely dirty you can see sparks emanating from the wire, this is what causes the crackling sound. The unit has a built in cleaner you can lift up and down to perform this task, located on the top, but this doesn't work extremely well.

I usually take a can of compressed air and blow as much of the dust I can off the wire and all surrounding internal areas as I can. To do this, approach the unit from the front, and turn the blade door slightly so the wire can be seen. This along with a thorough cleaning of the blades should eliminate the crackling noise. Of course, make sure the device is unplugged before performing any cleaning.

Processor is extremely SLOW


Processors are what they are. They run at the speed that is selected. In your bios you can change the automatic settings and speed it up or slow it down but if you've done nothing to change this then it should be the same speed as it was when you bought the computer. I will say that if you're running XP then your computer probably has slowed down considerably since it was new. As they add more and more service packs and security updates windows seems to bog down more and more. Also as you install programs on your computer, they all think that they are the most important software on your computer and should start automatically every time windows starts. If you do nothing to stop them then you have more and more programs running at windows startup using up more and more computer resources. If you're adept at computers then you can fix this by clicking on run and typing "msconfig" and disabling some of these programs under the "startup" tab. BE WARE!! Some of these programs are needed and you can mess your computer up bad if you disable a bunch of stuff you're not suppose to.

No clean air smell/crackling & static

Not sure about the smell though. Mine has started to smell a little strange and I haven't figured out how to fix that problem.
