Everytime I turn my computer on it starts up normally and lets me use my password to log in, but when it loads and gets to the, I dont know the name for it, but just the regular screen with all of my icons and stuff on it it starts to mess up. the same thing will happen everytime. I can click on one of my icons like FireFox but nothing will happen and the computer will freeze. And i noticed that it never shows there is an internet connection when there clearly is. I was able once to load up Starcraft by clicking on it but it was very laggy and jagged. I have also noticed that the tiny yellow light below the power button does not blink it just stays solid yellow.

Re: Everytime I turn my computer on it will freeze
You have a corrupted registry, try rebooting and depressing the F8 key to access safe mode..you will see a black and white screen with boot choices.
Choose "best last boot config" reboot and hope for the best.
If still no go reload windows with the disk and choose option "Reload windows WITHOUT FORMAT". It will replace windows and retain all you saved files. HOWEVER, you will need to reload all other programs, eg Office suite, games etc

Restart your computer, as it's restarting press f8 a boot up menu should pop up, among the options in that menu you'll see last known good configuration, select it, you're computer should hopefully start up normally, if it does not you may need to reformat, or take it into a tech shop for assistance.
it is probably a program that starts up overloads the system resources, so everytime it starts it freezes. what you can do is go into safe mode (go into safe mode by hitting f8 right before windows logo comes up when you start your computer, or right after dell logo. either that, or if you restart it wrong, it should give you the option of going into safe mode) then when you log onto your account, a window will pop out, just click yes. then either go to start menu on run(if you have windows xp) and type msconfig. then a window will pop out, when it does, go to the startup tab, and uncheck all of the boxes. click ok, and click restart, (for windows 7 its the same thing but instead of using run, just type it in the search bar on the start menu). go to start windows normally, if it still doesnt work, when you restart it, go to last known configuration. Hope this helps. If you need any clarification, just let me know, ill check in. Goodluck
Make sure your computer's not deleting the browser history and catch doing so erases the password from the computer's memory therefore you'd have to RE type it instead of the computer keeping you login or automatically logging you in
My solution to this problem would be to manually clear the catch/cookies and browser history so the computer doesn't keep trying to do that then RE type your password and username tell the computer to remember you then close the browser and restart your computer then try logging in again the computer should automatically log you in or have kept you login hope this helps
Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.
Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)
i found this floating around, hope it helps, let me know please
Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
Set the user name of your original administrator account. Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
It sounds like you closed the lid, which put the computer into "Standby mode" (which can be seen by the flashing green lightning bolt light on the front) . Whenever you turn your computer on from standby mode, it locks the computer so that an unauthorized person can't open your computer and run your programs without permission. To log in, you can just type the password you normally type when you log in to the computer. If you don't have a password, try just hitting enter instead of typing a password. (You may need to hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete before you can enter your password, just follow the instructions on your screen)
