It sounds like overheating. I would check the fans in the back to see if they are packed with lint. You will need new thermal paste, then take the keyboard bezel off then remove the screws that hold down the keyboard. Remove the four screws over the heatsink and then remove the fan. Blow these out, make sure there is nothing in the vents or heatsink. Use a credit card to scrape off old thermal paste on the processor, and the heatsink and put a small amount on the processor and put it back together.

Startup very slow on my new dell 660 desktop


If it is updating it will take a while to load updates. Once all the updates are installed it should Boot and shut down faster. Just let it finish the updates. do not disturb until finished.

"error loading operating system" message on dell inspiron 1420 laptop


only way to bypass this is use a recovery disk to boot from and then perhaps the issue will manifest itself

otherwise, it's the dreaded re format step

On start up the system boots and windows loads but wont finish. The message ''Insufficient system resources exist to complete API.'' it comes in a box headed Isass.exe- System Error Any help would be...


When windows tries to fire up, does it ask you whether to boot up in safe mode or normal (would be a black and white MS DOS screen with no mouse functions)? If not, you need to reboot your computer and go into boot options. There should be a little comment line in one corner of the screen before windows loads that says something like F2 Setup F12 Boot Menu. Do you get that once it has begun trying to execute windows?

Dell inspiron 8500 won't finish loading

Windows wont start. dont know how it happened.


Does F2 mean to enter setup or does F12 mean to enter setup, Press the particular key on the keyboard to enter setup and Go to Exit using your up-down keys on the keyboard (it varies with different motherboards) and go to Load Optimized Default then Yes and press F10 - Yes and it will automatically restart the system, b2.jpg if both are not displaying anything to do, restart the system and press Delete button and follow the same instructions as mentioned above. (If the BIOS screen is similar as displayed above, then just highlight the Load Optimized Default using your Up and Down Keys on the keyboard {Y for yes, Enter for OK}).. It's will boot from the hard disk as default not from the CD-rom..Good luck...
