I was able to disable the start up items and start up again. CPU and memory appear ok. A few weeks ago, I tried to install a USB infrared mouse. This caused me to finally go to system restore - mouse never worked - computer seemed ok then. Tonight I tried to check the settings on the mouse - they did not seem to be the right ones although they looked ok in the Bios. Could the mouse have caused this problem? It is still freezing, but intermittenly. I can get around in safe mode for a few minutes before it freezes up.

Well start a bit slower then.
go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then
start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows.
freezing ?
If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs.
Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items
and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok
any freezing.
If its freezing you may have a hardware issue.
if you have 2 sticks of memory remove on and or /reseat them
boot the dell diagnostics cd and check the cpu and memory.
report back

    I didn't get to see this response as you were not signed in and I missed it till tonight.

    as it is still freezing up. I would let it sit in the bios for about 30 mins and see if the bios freezes,

    It kind of sounds like you have a video card issue.

    by being in just the bios then that prettty well rules out the hard drive and just leave the memory/cpu/video

    the diagnostics can be set to run many times on the memory.

    it can test the video but not under full load.

    The only real way to see if its hardware related is to put in another hard drive and load all windows and drivers.

    or format reinstall the existing hard drive.

This is what I disliked about the "Sony hard drive partitioning plan" - they don't give you all of the C partition and then you run out of space. Out of frustration, I formatted the entire hard drive so that no remnants of Sony was in it and installed a fresh copy of the operating system, used the product key from the original operating system, sticker (label) affixed on the case to active Windows again. I got the entire C partition all to myself! Since you cloned that hard drive, you still have the "Sony hard drive partitioning plan".

No GUI on startup.


Try a repair installation.

Dell Inspiron 1524 freezes


Yuo could try running a linux livecd from boot, If that goes well and doesnt freeze it could be that software is killing your machine. if so reinstall windows and install one piece of software at a time until then test the installation to see if it kills the pc. When you find the offending software. uninstall it and never use it again.

Why does my curor freeze up?


First I would replace the batteries. I had the same problem a couple of years ago. The solution for me was getting rid of McAfee AV. To check if it is your problem, use CTL-ALT DEL to turn McAfee off and see if that gets rid of your mouse freeze ups.

A disk read error occurred press ctl-alt-del to restart goes back 2 same scrn


Sounds like the hard drive has errors.
Boot to a windows XP cd.
Repair using the windows console.
at the repair console type:

chkdsk /R (hit enter)

Let that run, it takes a long time.
If it's able to repair the drive enough for operation it will.

If it cannot you will be forced to replace the hard drive.

Inspiron B130 laggy video and sound.


I'd recommend the latest video drivers- and strangely enough- defragging the hard drive. Most laggy systems I've seen with plenty of ram (512 or more) that have no spyware on them, and no major ram eaters (norton, spysweeper, mcafee) are fragmented. look in task manager (ctl, alt del) and see how much free ram you have- and see what is using all of it. If you have a lot of ram, and no process is chewing up the ram, or the cpu- then defrag the hard drive.
