You may have a virus. Go to and use this resource to clean up your machine. Get a good anti-virus going. Next, go to the accessories, system tools on your menu and defrag your machine. You may also want to download Spybot SD or Windows Defender and use it to find any other 'stuff' on your machine that doesn't belong. Both are free.

DUR-7 charging problem

Are you sure it is not the charger itself at fault here?

If you have or know someone with a multimeter get them to check if any voltage is present on the charger plug of the cord. Batteries do not suddenly stop they usually give less and less time in uptime mode before they finally stop altogether. I would suspect the charger or charging circuit.yes it can be fixed

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Inspiron 531 random hang ups during normal window operations - widows freeze for ~1minut (or more), Widows Vista was installed in factory.

Start up the "Task Manager" by right clicking on the task bar at the bottom and choosing "Task Manager".
Click on "Processes" and then click on the "CPU" tab in the middle and make sure the arrow is pointing down.

This will show you what is spiking your processor. More than likely you will see "spoolsv.exe" utilizing 90+% of the CPU. If this is the case, here are some steps to resolve it. If it is not the case and you see something else utilizing the CPU, other than System Idle, you may want to uninstall and reinstall that software. If the computer is still hanging and nothing is spiking the CPU, your best bet would be to do a hard drive diagnostics and/or memory diagnostics. Also look at the numbers down at the bottom and if your Physical Memory is around 80%, you may want to stop some programs from starting up when your computer boots up.

Here are the steps to resolve the spoolsv.exe spiking problem in Vista:

Click on "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Services"
Scroll down and look for "Print Spooler".
Right click on "Print Spooler" and click on "Stop"
Close the Services and Administrative Tools windows
Click on "Start" > "Computer" > "Local Disk (Default setting)" > "Windows" > "Spool".
Delete all .SHD and .SPL files in this folder.
Reboot your system.

I can't hear others on Vent, but they can hear me.

I don't think the program is compatible with Vista. Were you running Vista when it worked a year ago ?
