How can I defrag my Dell optiplex760?


How to Defrag a Dell Computer
1. Open the My Computer window. To do this on a Dell computer, click on the "Start" button at the bottom of the screen. Then, click "My Computer".
2. Choose the hard disk drive that you want to defrag. Locate the section entitled "Hard Disk Drives." In this section is a list of hard drives on the computer. For most Dell computers, the hard disk drive you will want to defrag is Local Disk (C:).
3. Right-click on the hard disk drive you want to defrag on the Dell computer. If you want to defrag your C: drive, then right-click on "Local Disk (C:)". A menu bar will appear.
4. Click on "Properties." "Properties" is the last option on the menu bar. This opens the Local Disk (C:) Properties window.
5. Click the "Tools" tab. The Tools tab is the second tab in the Local Disk (C:) Properties window. The tabs are located on the top of the window.
6. Click the "Defragment Now" button. The "Defragment Now" button is in the Defragmentation section of the window. This opens the Disk Defragmenter window.
7. Click to select the disk drive you want to defrag on a Dell computer and then click "Defragment." For most Dell computers, this will be (C:). After you click "Defragment," the Dell computer will first analyze the disk drive you selected and then beginning defragging the Dell computer.
8. Wait for the "Defragmentation is Complete" message. If you have not defragged a Dell computer in a long time, then the defragging process might take a while, even as long as an hour for very fragmented Dell computers. Allow the Dell computer to run the defrag until the process is completed. You will know that the Dell computer has completed the defrag process when the "Defragmentation is Complete" message appears.
9. View the defrag report and then close the window. If you want to view the defrag report, click "View Report." Otherwise, click "Close" to close the window.

If your Windows XP or Vista is getting slow, a wise thing to do is to defragment your hard drives!defragment

There are many programs but one of the best is Auslogics Disk defragmenter. Just download the defragmenter, install it and run defragment. It should take approximately 1 hour and it says how much faster your computer went (for example 30%).
When the program has completed defragmenting you should immediately feel the difference (if the percent was over 30). Your computer should now be much faster than it used to be. Programs start …

I just fixed the memory module an I turn on the modem and it seems to b working fine now but the screen is blank no beeping or anything tried to diffrent screens but both are blank


This is probably a loose video car.

When you were fixing the RAM (probably remove it and then re-seat it), the video card may have come loose.

1. Turn off the PC and unplug it;
2. Touch something metallic to discharge static;
3. Unplug the monitor cable;
4. Open the case and carefully remove the video card.
5. Carefully but firmly replace the video card (most cards will snap when they fit back into place -- follow your video card manufacturer's instructions -- get these from the manufacturer's website.)
6. Plug everything back in and restart the PC.

You should get a good third party defrag program to keep your PC running at its best.

Fragmentation is basically broken-up pieces of files and free space randomly scattered all over your disk. The disk has to work a lot harder to save files in pieces and then to find them again and this really slows your computer down. It also wears out your disk, as the more the disk is used, the faster it wears out.

Basic defragmenting finds all the pieces of a file and puts them together, saving time.

Windows has a built-in defrag tool but it is very slow and you cannot use the PC while it is running (some users complain that it did not completely defrag their disks despite running all night).

Here is a Top 10 Reviews side-by-side comparison of the best defrag programs around:

http://disk-defragmenter-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

Select a program and install a free trial. The better defrag programs are automatic. The gold medal winner in the above review can defrag while you use the PC and it will also prevent fragmentation.

You can get a free trial for the gold medal winner via the review or at: http://www.diskeeper.com/defrag

Defragment your disk drives regularly.

Good luck to you!

How do I clear a bunch of space


Go to the Control panel, click add/remove programs. Remove programs that you do not want or use.

download Index.dat analyzer, install and run it:

http://www.systenance.com/indexdat.php


After you remove the programs and ran Index.dat Analyzer, you need to defrag the hard drive:

How to use the Windows Defrag tool:

  • To start Windows Defrag, double click on the "My Computer" or "Computer" Icon on Desktop or in Start Menu.

  • Next Right click on the "C:" drive (Or the drive you wish to Defrag) and select properties from the list that appears...


  • From the next menu select "Tools" and then "Defragment Now"


  • The Disk Defragmenter screen will now appear, Click on Analyze. This will check your drives and will only take a few seconds. If your result shows a lot of red like mine (see picture below) then click on "Defragment" to continue) Be warned this may take several hours, so don't run it, if you are going to need the computer in a rush. Some people tend to run it over night or before they go to work.


  • Once completed, shut down and use your computer everything should be that bit smoother.
