Have you checked the volume control? - right click the speaker symbol and (depending on your OS) select the volume control/speaker system control and make sure that you haven't got the master control on 'mute all'. did this help?

Deleting old SP1 partition on dell 2400


Sound like you have two versions of the operating system out there. Not sure what your question is. If you want to remove the old version you should have done that while you were doing the installation. That would have been easy by just telling the system to do it for you.

Now you will probably need some type of partitioning software and i'm not sure if you just delete it if it will cause problems when you try to boot because windows knows it's out there.

If I were you, I would just reinstall windows and clean the disk of everything. It shows you what it finds out there as far as operating systems, so just delete them both, then do a quick NTFS format of the drive and reinstall windows.

Sounds like a thermal problem. If the PC shuts down unexpectedly, I would make sure the CPU cooling system is clean of dust especially the fan.

Does not sound like a hard drive problem.

How can i completely delete everything on my computer that i have put on it?


There are many disk wiper applications available. Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) is free and effective, and the one I use when doing data destruction for a client machine. Use DBAN to completely clean the hard drive, reinstall Windows or your factory software image, and you'll have a computer with no trace of anything you've had on it.

Of course, hard drives are inexpensive now. If you're worried about deleting data on a computer you are selling or giving to someone else, I would suggest removing the hard drive completely. Let the new owner buy a drive and start with a fresh Windows install or factory restore. Then you can keep your drive as a spare or a backup, or physically destroy it if you want to dispose of it.

Cannot delete "System Volume Information" on extra drive


There is a free software title called ccleaner (a registry cleaner) that also gives you the option to delete system restore points. I would give that a shot.

FREE UP HARD DRIVE SPACE


Hi! Your 3 Gigs of memory have nothing to do with your disk storage. You may try freeing some disk space by doing the following:
Clean up your recycling bin by selecting the Empty Recycle Bin option, after right clickin on the icon.
Clean up the All User's temp directory, usually within your Windows installation drive-> Windows folder, called TEMP folder.
Clean up your own TEMP folder, usually hidden and found within your own user name folder. To make this folder visible, in File Explorer, go to Folder Options, and find the entry that reads: Hide system files. Uncheck the option. Make sure you reset it after you're done.
A little riskier is to try to resize your virtual memory, or the amount of disk space that Vista (and other versions of Windows) uses to emulate physical RAM, when you have exhausted it.
You may also save disk space by sacrificing the Hibernation feature by disabling it. If you do this, by going to the Advanced Settings of Vista, under System, uncheck the box next to your drive, and while having Hide System Files also unchecked, you can physically delete the file, usually found at the root of your main drive (usually C:) Note: For this change to take effect, you will have to restart your system with a cold boot.
Try buying some software similar to Norton Utilities (a reduced of it is available in Norton 360) that will defragment your drive but will also clean up stray and orphan files left behind by improper uninstallation of other software and temp files left behind when an application like Word, or any other, crashes.
Good luck!

It is very very slow did defrag, 2gig mem why so slow?


1.-First thing you should do is try closing some uneeded applications that are using up RAM. Try pressing ctrl+alt+delete to bring up task manager then go to the processes tab and close processes that you are not using. If you don't have no clue what process your closing don't do not close it cause it may mess up your system. 2- Second thing you can do is scan your computer with antivirus software and see if there is any spyware, adware, or malware in your system causing it to make your system slow. Just cause your computer operates doesn't mean malware isn't hidden in a file or something in your computer. If there is a virus or sort then get rid of it and remove it. 3. third- it's possible you could have bad sectors on your hard drive. To fix that and see click on start, then my computer, then right click drive C: default hard drive usually, and select properties, then go to tools tab, then error checking, and choose check now. This should increase your speed and performance by cleaning up bad sectors on your hard drive disk.
