You may not like the advice I am about to give but in my honest opinion either got to windows XP or wait for windows 7 due anytime.

Other than that you may wish to use add remove programs to remove any that you no longer use.

Remove any un wanted or in many cases un-needed tool-bars.

A good clean up may help you out considerably.

Depending on how much ram you already have then maybe extra ram would also be of benefit.

Vista is a known resource hog I have yet to actually recommend it to anyone and still advise people to stick to XP.

As a Microsoft beta tester I can however recommend Windows 7.

It does make Vista look slow and anyone who has used vista will notice the difference in speed but not too much in use.

It is what Vista should have been.

Hello,
All programs StartUp remove from the startup list the programs that are not need.

If too many applications are running in the background memory is reduced. Verify that you let Windows manage the paging memory.

I do not have Vista, so I give you the procedure for Windows XP, The keyword are in bold

For WINXP
Rigt click My computer on desktop.
Click Properties
Advanced Tab Click on Performance Settings.
Under Visual effects you may ask OS to adjust for best performance Under Tab Advanced make sure that Processor scheduling and Memory usage are set for Programs.
Verify on same tab that virtual memory is about equal to physical memory (or just let windows manage it)

Hope it helps

    Defragment disk often. Run a clean up every once in a while.

There are no official XP sound drivers for your model from DELL, but you can try this 'unofficial' XP driver (Driver for Windows XP - Dell Vostro A860 Audio{Conexant Audio CX2056-12} Size: 6.92 MB) from, here.

**Please take note install at your own risks & FixYa is not responsible!!!!

Dell Vostro a840 very low sound from laptop spekars


Go into your control panel and locate your sound card equalizer program, you may have to try several settings in the "Mixer" but you should be able to find one which substantially increases your volume output.

I dont know if it will work, but you can always try to instal the vista drivers.
Dell says that Vostro A840 only comes with VISTA.

Good luck to you
