Go to start, then run and type in msconfig then choose the startup tab from the box that appears. Everything that is ticked in here starts when you start windows xp that is why the pc is Sooooooooo slow, all you need running is your AntiVirus software if you have any! so untick everything except the AV software then click apply and then close, it will then ask to restart. Upon restart you will get a message about system configuration just tick box saying don't show this again and click OK. Everything should hopefully now be a whole lot quicker.

First thing I would do is take the desktop outside and clean it out with two cans of compressed air.

HEAT can really slow a machine down. Let me know if that makes a difference (good to do either way) and we'll go from there.

Inspiron b110 wont turn on only green flashig


Unplug your computer, wait 30 minutes, plug it back in and try again.

If it still doesn't work, it's got a serious problem. If it isn't under warranty with DELL any longer, take it to a reputable repair facility.

Dell dimension b110 not reading cd drive


Do you have any device drivers loaded on your system that may be interfering? Such as ANYDVD or some other app? Does this happen with data DVD's as well as movies?

Have you tried starting your DVD player application and then inserting the disk into the drive?

One thng you may want to try is going into device manager and deleting all IDE devices, then deleting the IDE controllers themselves and rebooting. This should allow Windows XP (I assume it is XP) to re-recognize and re-initialize the hardware. Then you may want to try re-installing the motherboard chipset drivers (there should be a driver disk that came with your machine, hopefully) just to make sure they are all in good shape.
