Why will my fan not run during use but i hear it when the computer powers up?


Fans, mainly the CPU fan, have a speed control which slows the fan down. This is usually controlled by the BIOS. The speed is based on temperature of the CPU. If it's cool with little load the CPU fan will run very slowly and you won't be able to hear it. On startup all fans ramp up to 100% until the BIOS takes over and slows the fan down.

My laptop a dell inspiron is really slow and the virus scan shows multiple viruses but i don't have the money to pay to have it cleaned internaly is there another way to make it go faster?


Download and install microsoft security essentials.Run a full scan.After that do a disk cleanup and a disk defragment.

This process may take an hour or so depending on how many viruses are found.

Firstly after running an antivirus programme. run CHKDSK/F then download from IObit.com asc-setup. It is freeware and cleans the registry of errors and more!
Then run a Defrag programme.

My computer operates very slowly and erraticly , sometimes at normal speed and sometimes very slowly, and even not responding at all for a few minutes. I have a Dell 9100 Inspiron with Microsoft XP Home...


To defrag your hard drive go to , start menu --> all programs --> accessories --> system tools --> disk defragment --> then select your hard drive and click defragment. This can take a few hours depending on how big your hard drive is and how much stuff you got. This may not even speed up your system. if your computer is running slow go to task manager and go to the proccesses tab and check if there is any unnessesary proccess running, if so just end them. write down the name of it and then delete it from your computer if you dont need it. :) hope that works. :)

Dell Inspiron 1300 Keyboard Lag


There is a program that is bundled with Dell machines called the Dell Media Experience. It runs on startup and has been known to cause issues with keyboards and typing speeds etc..... I found that by turning this off via MSConfig the problems associated with my keyboard went away.
Hope this helps.
Start - Run - MSconfig - Start up - Untick PCMService. O.K and restart.

Slow Cpu speed


Check in the BIOS to see what processor is rated at (upon power-up of laptop hit F2 key to enter setup menu). Depending on what model Centrino you have, the speed rating should be at around 1.2 GHz or better. If speed checks out in the BIOS then run diagnostics on laptop to see if the motherbrd has a bottleneck issue. To do this, hold down the <FN> key and then push the power on button. Problem could be either your processor or motherbrd.

Inspiron 1150 Slow startup, slow printing, unable to run 2 programs at once


What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
